Sandoval skates with no big name opponent

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) Fourteen candidates have filed for the Nevada governor's race but with little name recognition none of the challengers pose much of a threat to the re-election of Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval in November.

Sandoval will face four opponents in the June 10 GOP primary. All are newcomers or candidates who file every election with little chance of winning. Seven Democrats also filed, but none can be considered a front runner to defeat the popular incumbent. An Independent American Party and a Green Party candidate also filed by Friday's deadline.

Whoever faces Sandoval will face a huge financial hurdle. Reports show Sandoval took in more than $3 million last year in contributions for his re-election.
