Governing: Sandoval "not currently vulnerable"

In an assessment of the 2014 outlook for chief executives, Governing magazine finds 22 of 38 "not currently vulnerable."

Among those is our own Gov. Sunny, with this assessment from reporter Lou Jacobson:

Nevada, hard hit by the recession, turned strongly Democratic in the 2012 presidential race. Still, Sandoval seems to be defying gravity. One of the GOP's fresh Latino faces, Sandoval has crossover appeal; his approval ratings have been roughly 60 percent, meaning that a swath of Democrats and Democratic-leaning Independents must be satisfied with him. The state's economy is improving slowly, and Sandoval has benefited from having the Democratic Legislature as a foil. The Democratic bench is headed by Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto, who may or may not run, and who wouldn't be a slam-dunk if she did. Other possibilities include Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak.

Sounds right.
