Brad Leutwyler is "blatantly offended" he wasn’t included in the latest Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey of registered voters in Nevada’s Third Congressional District.
The polling, commissioned by the Review-Journal, was to assess the race for the Congressional seat held by Rep. Dina titus, D-Nev.
It showed Titus and Republican Joe Heck each getting support from 40 percent of respondents, with 20 percent undecided. It also tested Titus against Rob Lauer, a veteran and real estate investor. Titus led that matchup 48 to 32 percent, with 20 percent undecided.
Leutwyler, a Henderson Republican also running for the seat, left an angry voice mail expressing his outrage at not being included.
"It is like you are deliberately trying to exclude me from this process," said Leutwyler, who added some salty language for good measure.
On the Democratic side John Beard, who says he’s been registered as a Democrat in Las Vegas since 1972, says he’s challenging Titus for the Democratic nomination.
Beard, who bills himself as a conservative Democrat, isn’t listed as an official candidate on the Federal Election Commission Web site.
