Republican Convention

nvgop.jpg

Nevada Republicans are holding their state convention in Las Vegas this
weekend. It should be a display of unity but there are tensions between some
sections of the party who are less than happy with the selection of Sharron
Angle to carry the party's banner in the U.S. Senate Race. And even though
the party line is to reject any and all tax increases, one Republican leader
has broken ranks to say that the 2011 Legislature will have to increase
taxes and cut programs to write a workable budget. Assembly Minority Leader
Pete Goicoechea joins us to talk about the convention and his take on taxes
in the next legislature.
