Oscar Goodman considering switching political affiliation in bid for Nevada governor

LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman says he and his wife, Carolyn Goodman, are switching their political party affiliations to nonpartisan.

Goodman said Tuesday that he hasn’t decided yet whether he’ll run for Nevada governor in 2010.

But he says changing his party registration from Democrat keeps his options open.



Recent polls show Goodman would be a contender for governor against several Republicans, including incumbent Gov. Jim Gibbons.

Goodman is 70. If he ran as a Democrat, he would face Clark County Commissioner Rory Reid. He’s the son of U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.



Goodman is term limited and cannot seek a fourth term as mayor in 2011. He has said he would like Carolyn Goodman to succeed him in office.
