RENO, Nev. (AP) - The only thing more predictable than Republicans winning Nevada's special congressional election in the GOP-dominated 2nd District is their party leaders exaggerating its importance and Democrats trying to downplay its significance both
statewide and on the 2012 presidential stage.

Republicans declared that ex-state GOP chairman Mark Amodei's romp past Democrat Kate Marshall 58 percent to 36 percent Tuesday
night was a clear referendum on the failed policies of President Obama.

Obama carried the swing state of Nevada just three years ago by 12 percent.

Democrats said the GOP's take is an over simplification in the sprawling rural district that is home to only one-third of the state's voters and has been held by Republicans since it was created in 1981.
