  • Lorraine T. Hunt (born March 11, 1939) is an American politician. She is the former 32nd Lieutenant Governor of the U.S. State of Nevada, serving from 1999 to 2007 (as she is term-limited, she may not serve as Lieutenant Governor of Nevada ever again). She is a member of the Republican Party. Hunt was elected to the Clark County Commission in 1994, defeating Democratic incumbent Karen Hayes. In 1998 Hunt was elected Lieutenant Governor of Nevada, defeating Democrat Rose McKinney-James. She was re-elected in 2002 by defeating Democratic Clark County commissioner Erin Kenny. Hunt was a candidate for the Republican nomination for the 2006 Nevada gubernatorial election. She lost the Republican primary against Congressman Jim Gibbons. Hunt is the owner of The Bootlegger Bistro, a nightclub long popular with Las Vegas locals and showroom performers. Hunt is herself a singer, and often performs at the restaurant. She continued performing while serving as lieutenant governor; in Nevada, the job of lieutenant governor is essentially a part-time post, which allowed Hunt to keep her "night job" while in office. As lieutenant governor, Hunt focused primarily on tourism and economic development related policies. She served as President of the Nevada Senate, Chairwoman of the State Tourism Commission, Chairwoman of the State Economic Development Commission, and Vice Chairwoman of the Department of Transportation Board of Directors. Hunt filed for divorce from her second husband, Blackie, in July 2003; he died on December 30 of that year, before the divorce became final. On February 1, 2006, Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Norm Clarke reported that Hunt would marry entertainer Dennis Bono; the wedding took place on March 5, 2006. (en)
