Governor Sandoval openly opposed the effort to recall Dem Senators for no legitimate reason along with many principled Republicans who felt it was an abuse of process and feared to start of endless recall wars. Last year Michael Roberson secretly initiated an effort to recall three State Senators. The recall petitions targeted Democratic state Sens. Joyce Woodhouse (District 5) and Nicole Cannizzaro (District 6) and Independent Sen. Patricia Farley whose seat was going to be open in 2018 after Farley announced she was stepping down. Roberson is running for Lt. Governor in the Republican primary. The Lt. Governor is the President of the State Senate and is the deciding vote in tie breakers. Senator Roberson is the Republican Caucus Majority leader and winning back the senate would make him the defacto leader of the Senate as the Lt. Governor. But everyone saw through his Machiavellian plan as just another slimy Roberson power grab. And now it’s he has officially failed, again without Sandoval backing him. So the real question to come out of this mess Roberson created is, can he hold power without his sugar daddy Governor Sandoval’s support? Is Roberson so badly damaged by screwing base Republican voters by supporting Sandoval in 2015 that his career is about to end in 2 months in a messy primary with challenger and faithful Republican public servant Brent Jones? In a recent poll in the race for Nevada Lt. Governor, Brent Jones received 64% verse Mike Roberson received just 36%.
