Sandoval uses Dem attacks for fundraising
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) – Nevada Republican gubernatorial front-runner Brian Sandoval is using an attack ad heavily financed by Democrats to solicit campaign contributions.
A group called Committee to Protect Nevada Jobs this month began airing a television ad attacking Sandoval for his role in the state’s 2003 tax increase, while Sandoval was attorney general.
The committee is backed by Dan Hart, a long-time adviser to Democratic gubernatorial front-runner Rory Reid. Polls show Reid running stronger against Republican incumbent Gov. Jim Gibbons than Sandoval in November.
In an e-mail to supporters Monday, Sandoval asks for donations to help respond to what he called the Democratic and Reid “attack machine.”
