    GOP Primaries needed to get rid of Bad Eggs & Bad Blood

    (Chuck Muth, Citizen Outreach) – It’s not just Nevada that has a gaggle of very bad Republicans in its Legislature.  Missouri just witnessed a sellout of philosophical principle that ranks right up there with the 2015 GOP-controlled Nevada Legislature.
