For Nevada Republicans, terrorism a top issue


LAS VEGAS — As an early voting state, Nevada remains a work in progress.

Winning here has yet to prove it can impact the outcome of the presidential nominating contest the way Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina can. But the Republicans' 2016 primary is unfolding unpredictably and could still be a somewhat crowded affair by the time Nevada's Feb. 23 caucuses roll around. That could provide Republican voters here with an opportunity be difference makers.

Part of that will depend on how well the Nevada Republican Party runs its presidential nominating caucus, only the second one it has ever organized.
