Gov. Sandoval Files for 2nd Term With no Big Opponent

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Gov. Brian Sandoval has filed for second term, steamrolling into the 2014 election season sitting atop a huge campaign fund and no big name opponents in his rearview mirror.

The first-term Republican says he intends to serve out his second term if re-elected and will focus on improving education, Nevada's mental health system and the economy.

Candidate filing continues through March 14. While others have filed for the office, none are well known and Democrats have yet to field a favorite.

Any challenger will face a big funding hurdle. Campaign fundraising reports show Sandoval raised more than $3 million last year in his re-election bid.
