The author looks at the issues faced by U.S. Senator Harry Reid and Governor Jim Gibbons in Nevada in 2007. He mentions that the popularity ratings of Reid with Nevadans could be worrisome according to the periodical "Las Vegas Review." He cites that the allegation of hiring of an illegal immigrant by the family of Gibbons while he expressed disapproval of illegal immigrants faded in importance. He states that the economic problems that allow Gibbons to try to destroy state services do not affect the gaming industry.
