More 2012: Nevada doesn't want to be overlooked

NEVADA: After a lukewarm showing in the 2008 elections, Nevada Republicans are working to ensure the state is not overlooked on its Feb. 18 caucus date, the AP reports. Among the efforts: “a series of mock caucuses, train volunteers about how to hold a caucus and teach voters the intricacies of participating in the process. Party leaders also are seeking advice from experts in Iowa, which for years has held the leadoff caucuses. And the GOP is stepping up fundraising to ensure that it has enough money to rent venues for the voting sessions.”

Nevada Republican “kingmaker” Sid Rogich, the founder of R&R Advertising and president of the Rogich Communications Group, says that Mitt Romney has the state caucus locked up, meaning other candidates might visit the state but won’t play heavily in it, the Reno Gazette-Journal writes
