Prominent Nevada Republican quits ‘Tea Party-oriented’ GOP | The Raw Story — “It’s grown so conservative and Tea Party-orientated, and I just can’t buy into that.” A longtime Nevada elected official has left the Republican Party over its increasingly extreme positions. Sue Wagner, 73, who has served as a Reno assemblywoman, state senator, lieutenant governor and gaming commissioner registered as a nonpartisan voter last week. “I did it as a symbol, I guess, that I do not like the Republican Party and what they stand for today. I’ve been a Republican all my life. My dad was active (in the GOP) in the state of Maine where I was born. It was more of a moderate, liberal Republican Party.”
