RENO, Nev. (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he won't waste his time raising money for the doomed campaign of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bob Goodman in a bid to unseat Nevada's popular Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval.

Goodman won the nomination in a field of eight candidates in the June primary. But he garnered only 25 percent of the vote, compared to 30 percent for "none of these candidates."

Reid told reporters in Reno Monday he tried but failed to persuade better-known Democrats to take on Sandoval.

He said he welcomes a challenge from Sandoval should he decide to run against him in 2016. But he said Sandoval's current high level of support is due in part to an improving economy, and warned that governors who leave office mid-term often don't do well in their next election.

@fastd, you're right. Why waste money on a Democrat when they have a Democratic acting, illegal loving Republican in office. He gives the illegals everything the Dems want to give them so why not.

Thanks Harry for pointing out the lie that the two party system has become.This reminds me of a bit on the Daily show,where Harry gave a speech about being in the minority party under Bush and then showed a speech from Boner a few years latter that was almost word for word the same speech.You're seriously going to tell me that in a state this big they couldn't find one person that they could field as an alternative to Governor sanctuary state and free drivers licenses for illegals Sandovol?
