Clark Commissioner Opts Out of Governor's Race

By  | 

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak has ended months of speculation, announcing he will not challenge Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval in November.

Sisolak's decision dashes long-odd hopes by Democrats of finding a candidate who could give the well-funded, popular incumbent a run at the ballot box. Candidate filing begins in less than two weeks and runs through March 14.

Sisolak made his intentions known in a televised interview Monday night with political journalist Jon Ralston.

He says he did a lot of research and polling but says he's decided the timing isn't right for him to seek higher office.

Sandoval last year raised more than $3 million for his re-election campaign - a sum a late-comer to the race would have a hard time matching.
