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.

I can't believe people are so thin-skinned. What,exactly,did he say that SO hurt these people? Good Lord-listen to what the Democrats say if you want to hear hurtful speaking,especially Harry Reid,Nancy Pelosi,even Dina Titus. As much as I dislike Steven Horseford's policies and thought processes,he's always pretty polite and civil. It'd sure be nice if he could be RIGHT though.
