Candidates on the right

Nevada’s Independent American Party has announced its ticket for the 2018 election. The party met in a nominating convention in Sparks last month, but release of the names on the ticket was delayed while a dispute over the candidate for governor was settled.

Russell Best of Stagecoach will be the IAP candidate for governor. He is a Navy veteran and owner of an independent mortgage firm who previously ran for the U.S. House in district four. Cliven Bundy campaigned for him in that race.

Locally, the IAP will contest state Senate district 13 in Washoe County, with Sparks resident Charlene Young as candidate.
