Ford O’Connell’s response to today’s Politico “The Arena” question, “Can Ensign survive?“:
The Democratic nominee is likely to be either Shelley Berkley or Soros puppet Ross Miller, both extremely popular in Nevada. Due to Sen. John Ensign’s personal baggage, Silver State Republicans have a clear choice in the GOP primary. They can hope for the best and take their chances with Ensign or they can prepare for the worst and win with conservative darling Dean Heller next year.
All signs indicate that Nevada will be a battleground state for President Obama in 2012. A Heller Senate nomination could certainly make life at the ballot box much easier for the eventual GOP presidential nominee in 2012.
