R&R Partners, Inc.

Pete Ernaut, President of GPA and Principal
As president of government and public affairs, one of R&R’s two largest divisions, Pete runs the day-to-day lobbying and government affairs operations, and spearheads efforts to expand the agency’s government affairs and lobbying capabilities, both regionally and nationally. Under Pete’s leadership, the government and public affairs team has grown to six offices, including Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C.

A former three-term Republican state assemblyman, Pete is widely known as one of the state’s most influential political consultants. As a legislator, Pete served on several prominent committees, including taxation, government affairs and natural resources. In 1995, he chaired the interim committee tasked with examining electric utility deregulation.

In addition to his experience in elected office, Pete managed the successful campaign of Governor Kenny Guinn in 1998. Pete subsequently served as his chief of staff, supervising all strategic, administrative and legislative affairs for the governor. Some of the administration’s landmark achievements included the privatization of workers’ compensation, a change that erased a $2.2 billion state liability. He also spearheaded the creation of Nevada’s Millennium Scholarship, as well as the Senior RX program, which uses tobacco settlement proceeds to reduce medication costs for seniors on fixed incomes.

Pete also managed several other successful campaigns, including those of U.S. Senator John Ensign (R-Nev.), Attorney General Brian Sandoval (R-Nev.) and Nevada Supreme Court Justice Jim Hardesty.
