(Sandra Chereb | Las Vegas Review Journal) – They are long shots and underdogs in name recognition and fundraising. Minor party and independent candidates face tough odds in the upcoming election.
They know it, mostly, but that doesn’t deter their ambition or resolve.
No third-party or unaffiliated candidate has won a seat in the state Legislature or other higher Nevada office in recent memory. Still, they file and run, knowing they likely will not be hosting a victory party come election night. . . .
Dennis Hof, the Libertarian candidate for Assembly District 36, has name recognition. The owner of the Moonlight Bunny Ranch brothel and reality television star is running against the heavily financed incumbent, Assemblyman James Oscarson, R-Pahrump.
