JON RALSTON: Do you think that Rand Paul was right that the Civil Rights Act should not have extended to private businesses?

LOWDEN: This is what I say. I’m more interested in what we’re doing here in Nevada.

RALSTON: It’s a simple question.

LOWDEN: It’s a simple question, but it’s a gotcha’ question, frankly. I wouldn’t even know Rand Paul if I saw him on the street.

RALSTON: I’m not asking about Rand Paul.

LOWDEN: I haven’t been watching that race.

RALSTON: Do you think the Civil Rights Act should apply to private businesses?

LOWDEN: I think you want to change the subject from what’s really happening. Nobody’s asking that question, Jon

RALSTON: So you’re not going to answer it?

LOWDEN: No.
