AIR DATE: June 11, 2012

We're in the middle of early voting season and politicians everywhere are hoping that things run smoothly, at least through Election Day. Right now, however, things are not working out that way. Former top lobbyist Harvey Whittemore was indicted Wednesday on charges of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Harry Reid. The Clark County Republican Party is being torn by factionalism and accusations of disloyalty and the state Republican Party has hired and unhired a political director in the last 72 hours. Political commentator Jon Ralston explains why the Nevada political establishment is in such turmoil.
