Listen
AIR DATE: May 26, 2010

Tammy Peterson is one of two Democrats running for the party's nomination in Senate District 8. There is no big ideological difference here but there is a dispute over the way in which the party has given Peterson preferment over Mark Brandon who was running a grassroots campaign within the party. We also look at the policies that Peterson thinks will win her the seat.

UPDATE
Ian Mylchreest inadvertently described Sen. Bill Raggio, R-Reno, as "senate majority leader." He is, of course, the minority leader in the state senate.

COMMENTS:
