Nevada has a knack for picking winners
According to a story from Politico, with the exception of the 1976 election, Nevadans have chosen the winning president in every election since 1912. Nevada is considered a swing state that tends to lean a little more Democratic than Republican.
Who is still in the race for the Republican nomination?
These are the Republican candidates still in the race., along with a link to their websites. After Saturday’s South Carolina primary, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush suspended his campaign.
A CNN/ORC poll had Trump at 45 percent, with Rubio in second place at 19 percent, Cruz with 17 percent and Carson with 7 percent.
How do you say that, anyway?

How many delegates are at stake?
There are 30 delegates up for grabs in Nevada. Ten at-large delegates, 12 district delegates – three for each of the four congressional districts in Nevada -- five “bonus” delegates and three Republican National Committee delegates. The delegates are awarded proportionately, based on the votes cast.
