Republican Party Chairman Aiding Jill Derby

How many times have I fawned over the Nevada Republican Party? Probably too many times to count. Currently, state Republican Chairman Paul Adams just makes me a little giddy. The Las Vegas Sun:

UNR political scientist Eric Herzik said the intraparty fight puts the 2nd Congressional District - usually reliably Republican - into play.

"Jill Derby was already doing everything right, and then she gets this gift," he said. "How do you turn a safe district into a competitive one? Fight among yourselves.

"Republicans here have won because they've stayed united and they continue to turn out. Now you've got partisan infighting, and Adams' leadership is aiding and abetting that - in an already bad year for Republicans.

"He's the head of the party and he's supporting the losing candidate who's pursuing a divisive action," Herzik, a Republican, continued. "I don't know what he's doing."
