Brian Sandoval
Republican

The 2010 Nevada gubernatorial election was held on Tuesday, November 2, 2010, to elect the Governor of Nevada, who will serve a four-year term to begin on January 3, 2011.

Despite speculation that Incumbent Republican Governor Jim Gibbons would not run for a second term due to his low popularity and scandals, he sought re-election[1][2][3] and was defeated on the Republican primary by former federal judge Brian Sandoval.

Sandoval defeated the Democratic nominee Rory Reid, son of Incumbent Senate Majority Leader, Democrat Harry Reid, on the general election.
