Governor Brian Sandoval today issued the following statement after learning of Senator John Ensign's decision to resign his Senate seat effective May 3, 2011:
"I appreciate Senator Ensign's years of service to Nevada as a Member of Congress and in the U.S. Senate and I respect the decision he has made. Senator Ensign has dedicated the better part of two decades to public service in our nation's capital. A true fiscal conservative and always a fighter for the Silver State, Senator Ensign deserves our thanks for the work he has done. Kathleen and I wish John, Darlene, and the Ensign family all the best."
