Reno elite comes out for Hutchison

As anti-Establishment lieutenant governor candidate Sue Lowden was tweeting about her campaign meetings in Reno  on Thursday, the anointed favorite, Mark Hutchison, sent out word that the city's elite is with him.

As you can see from the invitation attached here, a Nov. 5 event at prominent businessman Blake Smith's home is beng hosted by the likes of Mayor Bob Cashell, Sparks Mayor Geno Martini, gamer Gary Carano and R&R's Pete Ernaut, among several others.

Message, repeated: I'm anointed.

This comes after Lowden made it clear that she was meeting with Lucas Foletta, who was forced out earlier this year as the chief of staff legal counsel to Gov. Brian Sandoval, who recruited Hutchison so he can keep his second-term options open. Cute move by Lowden.

I love Nevada politics. Still. Always.
