Dawn Gibbons backs Sen. Harry Reid re-election

LAS VEGAS (AP) ” Nevada first lady Dawn Gibbons is atop a list of Republicans signed on to support Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s re-election in 2010.

Gibbons, a former Republican assemblywoman, confirmed her support for Reid, but would not comment on it. She is currently seeking a divorce from Gov. Jim Gibbons.

The Reid campaign released the list Wednesday.

Also on the list are Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta, operators of the Stations Casinos gambling company. The Fertittas more often align with GOP causes and have a long-standing feud with the state’s largest labor union.

Other supporters named were Jim Murren, chief executive of casino operator MGM Mirage, Tony Marnell, chief executive of M Resorts and entertainer Wayne Newton.
