It's Nuh-VAA-duh, Stupid!
Nevada is holding state caucuses on Saturday, Jan 19th. The Clinton campaign (or not) is sueing the Culinary Worker's Union because they can vote at work while everyone else has to go their home districts. The court's decision could change the outcome in Nevada and perhaps even change the caucus system.
Be that as it may, there is something of far more import - the name of the state. While "Nuh-VAH-duh" is probably much closer to the Spanish pronunciation, the good folk of the Silver State pronounce the second syllable the same as the "A" in "add, sad, bad, mad" - Nuh-VAA-duh.
It's hard, I know, but please, East Coast talking heads, try pronouncing the State name correctly.
