Is Governor Goodjin In Nevada's Future

Oscar Goodman, the normally loquacious mayor of Las Vegas, turns into a near mute anytime he's asked if he wants to run for governor.

"I'm the happiest mayor in the world," Goodman said recently when asked. "And that's all I have to announce."

But some close to him have said the mayor is seriously considering a run, and the latest poll suggests he's the best hope for the Democrats.

A Zogby International poll released Tuesday found Goodman was the only Democrat to top Rep. Jim Gibbons, R-Nev., the Republican front-runner and early favorite in the 2006 governor's race.

The poll, conducted online and over the phone in mid-September, asked 500 Nevadans whom they would vote for.

Goodman had a 41.4 to 40.1 lead over Gibbons. The poll has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.
