Candidates spend big in lieutenant governor race
The race for the part-time job of Nevada lieutenant governor has turned into a high-dollar event, with the Democratic and Republican candidates expecting to spend $1 million to $1.5 million apiece.
Southern Nevada developer Bob Unger, the Democratic nominee, is spending nearly $1 million in a statewide television ad blitz in the closing few weeks of the campaign alone.
Brian Krolicki, the Republican candidate, said his opponent is trying to buy the election. But Unger said most of the money spent on his TV campaign will come out of his own pocket.
Update: Krolicki defeated Unger with 301,240 or 52.2 percent of the vote, compared to Unger’s 228,511 votes or 39.6 percent.
