The New Hampshire primary is next Tuesday, but I’m more intrigued by the Nevada caucus on January 19. Caucuses are more fun, after all, and it’s a beautiful state.
For starters, the viability thresholds are a bit different in the Battle Born state that they are in Iowa. Other issues: will the SEIU and the Culinary Workers endorse? (Anjeanette Damon’s report at Inside Nevada Politics suggests that Obama, as Iowa winner, stands a good chance to receive the latter’s endorsement.) How much will Cory Reid and his Clark County machinr aid Clinton? Clinton was endorsed by El Mundo, the state’s largest Spanish-language paper, and has support from nearby California mayors, Antonio Villarigosa of LA and Gavin Newsome of San Francisco. How important will Nevada’s Latino population be– a question explored by Ina Jaffe on ATC earlier this week?
(OK, a little Granite State thought: Obama v. McCain could be one of the more interesting aspects of the next 5 days.)
