Gov. Sandoval Disagrees With GOP Consultant, Says Romney Will Win Nevada

CARSON CITY – Gov. Brian Sandoval said today he disagrees with the political prognostications of his friend and adviser Pete Ernaut, who earlier this week predicted that President Obama will win Nevada on Nov. 6.

Gov. Brian Sandoval.

“Pete and I have been friends for many, many years,” Sandoval said. “Gov. Romney has my full support. I believe that Gov. Romney is going to win the state. He has a great amount of momentum at this point. And we’ll know on election day.”

Ernaut, president of government and public affairs for R&R Partners, said Tuesday he sees Nevada voters supporting President Obama while at the same time giving Republican Sen. Dean Heller a victory against Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley in the hard fought U.S. Senate race.

Ernaut made the comment on the Nevada NewsMakers television show.

“I don’t think there is a Romney-Berkley voting bloc,” he said. “But there is clearly an Obama-Heller voting bloc.”

Sandoval was scheduled to cast his vote today in Reno.
