Democrats find candidate against Roberson

He already has a primary with Carl Bunce, the Ron Paulite coming at him from the right.

Now state Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson has a general election foe, too (assuming he gets there).

Teresa Lowry, the longtime prosecutor, has decided to run for that southeast Las Vegas Valley district. I think she has a lot of potential as a candidate, with an impressive history of putting execrable criminals behind bars. But the political graveyard is littered with legislative candidates who looked good on paper.

The race for the state Senate is going to be fascinating in 2014, more interesting, perhaps, than anything besides the margin tax campaign and the lieutenant governor's race. And, perhaps, more important.
