State Sen. Mark Hutchison is making a tour of Northern Nevada this weekend to build support for his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor. Ordinarily, a Republican would have no trouble in the state's most conservative counties, but critics say he has backed increased taxes that threaten the region's mining industry, and have started a negative campaign - 14 months out from the 2014 election. Can opponents succeed in knocking out a candidate who's been anointed by the top Republicans in Nevada?
