Princeton revisited: town Republicans persist despite strident opposition

The 2016 election continues to loom large on the psyche of Princeton Republicans.

Dan Schwartz ’72, Nevada’s State Treasurer, is a Republican candidate running to replace Brian Sandoval, the state’s term-limited Republican governor.  Time and time again, Schwartz was not afraid to challenge Sandoval and those who he refers to as Sandoval's “lackeys in the Nevada legislature.” Schwartz’s rugged independence is a quality that he has spent a lifetime cultivating.
