This morning, I asked subscribers to Flash (you can sign up on the site) this trivia question:
During the 1993 Legislature, how many lawmakers were there who would later run for statewide office and who are they?
Lots of folks took a stab at it, but here is the correct answer: 10 (11 if you count one who started to run but never filed)
Here they are:
State Sen. Tom Hickey -- Secretary of state, 1994
State Sen. Sue Lowden--U.S. Senate, 2010
State Sen. Joe Neal -- Governor, 2002
State Sen. Ray Shaffer -- Lieutenant governor, 1986
State Sen. Dina Titus -- Governor, 2006
Assemblywoman Kathy Augustine -- Controller, 1998 and 2002
Assemblyman Jim Gibbons -- Governor, 2006 and 2010
Assemblyman Dean Heller -- Secretary of state, 1994 and 1998; U.S. Senate, 2012
Assemblywoman Erin Kenny -- Lieutenant governor, 2002
Assemblyman Richard Perkins -- Governor, 2006 (this is borderline, as he raised money but never filed)
Assemblyman Scott Scherer -- Attorney general, 1998
Several of you got to nine or 10. But no one got all 11.
