Republican front-runner Mitt Romney faces competitive races in many states. But that doesn’t include Nevada, whose caucuses come Feb. 18, four days after the New Hampshire primary, Politico reports.

He won the silver state’s caucuses in 2008 by nearly 40 percentage points, and the former Massachusetts governor has maintained his popularity in Nevada.
Romney has almost the same campaign organization there as four years ago, a contrast to Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina — the other early primary/caucus states.
“I would be shocked if Mitt Romney didn’t win Nevada by a significant margin,” said Sig Rogich, a Nevada Republican heavyweight, who hasn’t committed to a presidential candidate yet.
“He’s put in time that no one else has invested in the state. He’s got a significant advantage with the [Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints members], and their turnout is extraordinarily high.”
