Letter to the editor:

Sandoval should avoid GOP circus

It was nice to read the Sun article last week “Sandoval steps to the left of his party.” I consider myself a moderate Democrat, but when it appears an elected official is willing to do what is best for the middle class and go against lock-step ideology of his party, I will back him to the hilt.

It seems like the only misstep our governor has made was throwing his support to Texas Gov. Rick Perry. I feel our governor has great support in Nevada and should stay away from supporting any person running for office, be it Democrat or Republican. For sure, stay clear of any one of the clowns in the GOP presidential candidate circus.

Getting involved in that would alienate voters like me from supporting him in the future. Any GOP candidate adhering to the GOP standards of pro-rich and anti-poor will crash and burn big time in the next election.

When a disgraced, ex-leader of the GOP is their presidential front-runner, what can that tell you? His supporters are either oblivious to the facts or they hate a president who looks out for 99 percent of Americans.

Mr. Sandoval please look out for the folks who need your help and they will be there for you when the GOP cremates itself.
