CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Reno Republican Assemblyman Pat Hickey spurred controversy when he said a lot of minorities and younger people won't turn out in next year's non-presidential election, adding, "It is a great year for Republicans." He's now apologizing for that comment on Twitter.
He tweeted "I am sorry about my recent comments and I regret I made them. It was not my intention to, but I did misspeak plain and simple and for that I apologize. I agree with Gov. Sandoval that Republicans must earn the trust and confidence of all Nevadans. I look forward to working with the Governor and my fellow Republicans in accomplishing just that."
Hickey made the offending comments on a conservative radio talk show.
