Boyd alumna Lucy Flores '10 Featured in Las Vegas Review-Journal

On Dec. 8, Boyd alumna Lucy Flores '10 was featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal article Nevada poll: Hard-knock life could help Flores' political career.

"Assemblywoman Lucy Flores’ hard-knock life might end up helping her political career. That’s the upshot of a poll conducted in November for the Las Vegas Democrat. It suggests she would lose the lieutenant governor’s race to Republican state Sen. Mark Hutchison if the election were today: 41 percent of the vote for him, 35 percent for her. But if voters learn more about how Flores overcame a troubled upbringing, she would eke out a narrow victory over Hutchison — 46 percent to 43 percent — according to the survey by the Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group, a Democratic polling firm," the article reads.
