Nevada's tax-raisers have you in their cross hairs

Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);10/6/2008, Vol. 25 Issue 40, pP39
The author reflects on the campaign strategy of Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn. He argues that the long-term planning and higher tax goals of Guinn in the 1998 elections made the people doubt to vote him in the primary. Campaign mailers were sent to Grand Old Party (GOP) voters which presented Guinn as a solid, low-tax, limited-government Reaganite conservative but were reinstated after he won the elections. The author notes that politicians for higher taxes need to deceive most voters to win.
