LAS VEGAS (AP) â€” The Las Vegas skyline is dominated by an imposing row of high-rises, much like in any American metropolis.
What makes politics here different is who works in those skyscrapers â€” not lawyers or accountants, but heavily unionized housekeepers, blackjack dealers and line cooks who have abruptly transformed Nevada into a swing-voting state.
They have turned what once was a reliably conservative, largely rural state into a key political battleground. It's also become a test case for whether Republicans can succeed without the support of a rapidly growing Hispanic population.
