Republican Party (United States)

The Republican Party, also referred to as the GOP, is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States. The GOP was founded in 1854 by anti-slavery activists who opposed the Kansas–Nebraska Act, which allowed for the potential expansion of chattel slavery into the western territories. Since Ronald Reagan's presidency in the 1980s, conservatism has been the dominant ideology of the GOP. It has been the main political rival of the Democratic Party since the mid-1850s. The Republican Party's historical predecessor is considered to be Northern members of the Whig Party, with Republican presidents Abraham Lincoln, Rutherford B. Hayes, Chester A. Arthur, and Benjamin Harrison all being Whigs before switching to the party, from which they were elected. The collapse of the Whigs, which had previously been one of the two major parties in the country, strengthened the party's electoral success.

Political career

State treasurer

Krolicki was elected state treasurer in 1998. During his tenure, Krolicki worked to make college education more affordable, and considered it "a cornerstone of his administration." He created the State Treasurer's College Savings Plan and Nevada's Prepaid College Tuition Program,[1] and oversaw the set-up of the Gates Scholarship in Nevada.[2]

Along his work in higher-education accessibility, Krolicki obtained upgrades from credit-rating agencies for Nevada, saving taxpayers millions of dollars in interest payments. All rating agencies now consider Nevada just a notch below AAA, the highest and most coveted rating, and held by very few states. Krolicki was also the first state treasurer in the United States to receive the coveted Certificate of Excellence in Investment Policy from the Association of Public Treasurers of the United States and Canada. Krolicki also formulated and implemented many investment programs that obtained tens of millions of dollars in revenue for the state.

On the national level, in 2002, Brian was unanimously elected by his peers to serve as president of the National Association of State Treasurers (NAST), which collectively represents over $1 trillion in assets. As president, he founded the NAST Committee on Corporate Governance and served as chairman of the NAST Foundation, which promotes financial literacy and education throughout the nation. He has worked hard to promote financial literacy in Nevada by introducing the Nevada Women's Money Conference, a free event designed to provide the necessary tools and information to become financially educated. In May 2004, Brian was selected by his state treasurer colleagues to receive the Unruh Award, given to the nation's most outstanding state treasurer. Most recently, in December 2004, Brian was again honored by his national peers in both the private and public sectors with the highly regarded Gritz Award for Excellence in Public Finance in recognition of his leadership and innovation in the area of public debt management.

Lieutenant governor

In 2006, Krolicki was elected Lieutenant Governor of Nevada. He was re-elected in 2010.[3]

Prosecution by Nevada Attorney General

On December 3, 2008, Krolicki was indicted on four felony counts. The charges were related to Krolicki's management of a multibillion-dollar college savings program in his previous position as Nevada's state treasurer. Two of the counts were of misappropriation and falsification of accounts by a public officer, and two counts were of misappropriation by a treasurer. He faced up to four years in prison on each of the four counts for a maximum of sixteen years. Krolicki said there was no basis for the charges and called them a partisan political tactic by Democratic Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.[4]

A Las Vegas judge later dismissed the charges, exonerating Krolicki and his Chief of Staff Kathy Besser.[5]
