Lieutenant Governor Candidate Interviews

The Douglas County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC) is proud to provide the following interviews of the candidates for lieutenant governor of Nevada in the November 2014 election.

These interviews were conducted by DCRCC members with a recording device present to assist in the verbatim transcription of the comments. Candidates were not provided the questions in advance, nor were they allowed to revise their answers.

Candidates were given a courtesy copy of their respective interview transcriptions one day prior to publication here.

We wish to thank DCRCC member Walter Nowosad "The Republican" for conceiving of, planning, and executing these interviews. We believe these transcripts will be a useful resource for the voters of Nevada.

Lt. Gov. Candidate Sue Lowden Interview

Interview conducted November 18, 2013

The Republican: What prompted you to run for the office of Lt. Governor?

Ms. Lowden: I had been thinking about it for a year because I knew that Brian Krolicki was termed out and that it was an open seat. I felt that by background of three decades in the tourism industry and being on the board of Las Vegas Events lends itself to being the chairman of Tourism which by statute is what the lieutenant governor does.

Lt. Gov. Candidate Mark Hutchison Interview

Interview conducted March 20, 2014

The Republican: What prompted you to run for the office of Lt. Governor?

Senator Hutchison: Well I will you that I was prompted to run for…a position within state government because of my experience in challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare. I was appointed by two Republican governors to represent the State of Nevada, pro bono and the legal challenge and the constitutional challenge to President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, now known as ObamaCare. I saw first-hand and up close what President Obama meant when he was running for president when he said he was going to, quote fundamentally transform our system of government, period, close-quote. This was the first piece of legislation that came out of his admini…major piece of legislation that came out of his administration and it fundamentally changed the relationship between citizens and the United States Government. Never before in our country’s history had the federal government required citizens to buy a product in order to maintain their good standing as citizens.

It's Time for Your Voice to Make a Difference

2014 Republican Precinct Meetings.

We are starved for time, concerned for our community, and cynical of being able to get elected officials to do the right thing. A local group producing results in the face of these challenges is the Douglas County Republicans. This January 29th, Republicans in Douglas County have a critical, once-every-two-year opportunity, to define the Republican Party.

Some elected leaders have chosen not to follow the principles outlined by the party they ran for election under. The good news is that your local Republican central committee has made progress over the past few years in launching and leading the efforts to actively engage our politicians to help them analyze and testify on legislation. Douglas Republicans ask that you give us a few hours on January 29th to help further define our Party, an important step in limiting government so we may all live freer and better lives.

Every two years, Nevada's major political parties hold neighborhood precinct meetings. Historically, these meetings are poorly attended; a shame, since these meetings determine Republican Party principles and goals. With just a few hours of your time, you can help shape the Republican Party for the next two years.

At these meetings, “planks” (individual issues) are discussed, debated and voted on. This process answers the often asked, but seldom answered question, “what does the Republican Party stand for, specifically, what is the Republican Party, and who decides this?” You, us, we, together, as registered Republicans in Douglas County, decide what our party stands for and what our goals are. We also write and submit official inputs for state and national Republican Party platforms.

Please attend your neighborhood meeting with your ideas and questions. We'll discuss and vote on the platform planks, as well as decide who among us neighbors should represent our precincts as a delegate to the Douglas County Republican Convention, March 8th. The Convention will further develop and publish a platform to guide our party for the next two years.

At the county convention, the membership of the Central Committee for the next two years will be elected. The Committee manages the Party on behalf of the Republicans in Douglas. There are big plans to add to our accomplishments on legislation and in electing candidates that will respect our Platform goals. We remain closely engaged in helping our elected officials “stay on target” against the unsavory forces that seek political influence.

Douglas Republicans have real accomplishments under their belts. We humbly ask you to join us for a few hours, tell us what you think the Republican Party should be, meet us, and see what you think. We know your priorities are many and your time is short. Let us show you how we can make important use of your time to benefit your family, our community, state, and nation. We've learned what Margaret Mead once said is absolutely true, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

All Nevada registered Republicans are welcome to attend, Wednesday, January 29, 2014. To see the meeting location for your precinct, visit our Voting Information page: or click the “Voting information” tab on the website. You also may telephone the Central Committee’s Headquarters at 775-782-4GOP (4467) for information.
