Race background

Many politicians looking ahead say that this 2014 Nevada lieutenant gubernatorial race is one of the more important elections in the history of this position. In the past, only seven of the thirty-four former lieutenant governors have moved into the top position of governor, but depending on who wins this election, that person may have a bigger change at becoming the eighth. In 2016, Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, will be running for re-election, and Brian Sandoval, who already has announced his run for re-election of Governor of Nevada in the 2014 election will more than likely be encouraged to run against Reid in 2016 if he wins the gubernatorial election, which is looking favorable. Sandoval will be more likely to run for the new position if a fellow Republican holds the lieutenant governor's seat as that person will take over the Governor's office as stated in Article 5, Section 18 of the Nevada Constitution addressing vacancies.[8]
