In Nevada:

Zachary Moyle, executive director of the state GOP, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Kramer invited him to look at something in the trunk of his Mercedes before pulling out a rifle, pointing it at hisface and warning that he would be back if President Bush vetoed an emergency war spending bill being considered by Congress.

Bush and Democratic leaders are locked in a dispute over the president's pledge to veto legislation if it sets a timetable on the Iraq war.

Kramer also removed photos of Bush and Vice President from the wall of the office and threatened to harm staff members, Moylesaid. Kramer left his cell phone number with office staff before leaving, police said.

Glad they picked him up before he tried anything else:

A man accused of threatening a Nevada Republican Party official with arifle was arrested Tuesday in a vehicle in which police found swords,knives, a shotgun, shells and a flare gun, authorities said.
