Presidential Pig Obama squeals the top spot, wins by a snout at the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off at John Ascuaga's Nugget.

Obama wins by a snout!

A presidential running of the pigs at “The Best in the West” Nugget Rib Cook-Off predicts President Obama will win re-election in November.

In a completely unscientific method of predicting America’s next Commander in Chief, pigs dressed to represent “Obama” and “Romney” raced down Victorian Avenue in Sparks, Nevada, oinking for votes.

Just like the real 2012 Presidential candidates, these little piggies were pounding the pavement in one of the most important counties in the upcoming election! They put the “pork” in politics in this swing state.

It was a close race, but Pig “Obama” ended up “squealing” the top spot, winning by a snout.
John Ascuaga’s Nugget invited Nevada politicians to attend and cheer on their party’s oinker, and people were also able to register to vote at the event.

Romney-supporters only sulked for a moment, before joining the half-a-million people coming to John Ascuaga’s Nugget over the extended Labor Day weekend to enjoy ribs at one of the largest BBQ festivals in the country. The 24th Annual Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off runs from August 29 – September 3, 2012.

John Ascuaga's Nugget is one of the few family-owned casino resorts left in the country. Founded as a coffee shop with a few slot machines on March 17, 1955, John Ascuaga has built the Nugget into a world-class, full-service gaming resort destination.
