The Constitution Party of Nevada Takes on Lt. Governor Candidate

The Constitution Party of Nevada fired a shot against the bow of the State Republican establishment with its filing of an official complaint against Governor Brian Sandoval’s pick for the position of lieutenant Governor, Mark Hutchison. The complaint which was submitted to Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller, alleges that Mark Hutchison violated Nevada Revised Statute 294A.100 and State Constitution, Article 2, Section 10 when he received more than the legal limit of $5000 for the primary and $5000 for the general election from his Law Firm, Hutchison & Steffan LLC. The information this complaint is based on came directly from the Secretary of State’s Aurora Campaign Finance Disclosure database back during the 2012 election for State Senate District 6. The complaint specifically requests that these contributions be investigated and if applicable both Hutchison & Steffan LLC. and Mark A. Hutchison be charged as outlined in NRS294A.100(3). The complaint also clearly states that NRS294A.420(5)(E) specifically allows the Secretary of State to take into consideration, “Any knowledge or experience the candidate, person, committee, political party or nonprofit corporation has with the provisions of this chapter.” The filing then goes on to state that State Senator Mark a. Hutchison promotes himself in person and on the Hutchison & Steffan website as an “Election Law and Government Ethics Attorney. It will be interesting to see how the Secretary of State will handle this apparent violation of campaign financing laws.Hutch-Complaint

    Carlos: appreciate your party’s efforts but an easier task for all of you outliers ( Harry Reid loves this word) is to register as Republicans and vote againist him in the Primary. As you know, all of you have NO vote in the Primaries; so you might as well be voting for Harry & friends. REGISTER, VOTE Hutchinson down & then you will have a stronger voice in the general election as you will be able to broker those “Constitution” votes. Now that’s making them count!
    Look forward to seeing you soon

    • Ken,

      We certainly understand your concerns that we would be weakening the voter base by staying out of the Republican primaries. I would suggest that you read the following blog on what we stand for. We reserve the right to register and even plan to register Republican to vote in the primaries for candidates who will uphold the principles of the Founding Fathers as written and intended in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

      I also look forward to seeing you soon my friend,
      Carlos
