Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry is making the Nevada caucuses relevant again, Politico reports. The Silver State’s caucuses are scheduled as the nation’s third caucus/primary contest after Iowa and New Hampshire.

Mitt Romney started off as the major favorite in Nevada, but Perry passed him up in one poll and has received the biggest prize in Nevada’s endorsement game: the backing of Gov. Brian Sandoval. That support also brought Perry some top-flight campaign assistance in the state.

Sandoval “is as big of an endorsement as you can get in the state, and it means that Rick Perry quickly inherits an infrastructure in Nevada,” said Reno-based GOP operative Robert Uithoven, who’s not working with a presidential campaign. “He’s going to have access to the governor’s activist supporters and his donors, and that’s significant.”

A loss in Nevada could be serious for Romney, who has been counting on major victories in New Hampshire and Nevada to compensate for weak results in Iowa and South Carolina.
