Little Change in Gubernatorial Poll

LAS VEGAS -- A new poll commissioned by 8 News NOW and the Las Vegas Review-Journal shows Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Sandoval beating Democrat Rory Reid.

The poll of 625 registered Nevada voters was conducted by Mason-Dixon Research from August 9 to August 11.

The poll shows little change from a poll commissioned two weeks ago. Sandoval has a comfortable lead over Reid, despite new commercials released by the Reid campaign.
