One of the featured speakers at a forty-dollar-a-plate Democratic Party dinner in Minden was an unintentional no-show.
Aides say gubernatorial candidate Jim Gibson was unable to catch
a flight out of Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport yesterday
afternoon because he forgot to bring his wallet and identification.
They say the Henderson mayor felt "terrible" about missing
last night's dinner, but could not board the plane without the I-D.
Gibson is vying for the Democratic nomination against Nevada
Senate Minority Leader Dina Titus of Las Vegas, who refrained from
attacking him at the dinner.
Gibson's troubles came two days after an appeals court dismissed
a legal challenge to federal airport regulations requiring
passengers to show identification before they board planes.
At the dinner, Jack Carter - son of the former president -
confirmed he would announce his candidacy for the U-S Senate at a
February sixth rally in Carson City.
