CARSON CITY (AP) - Gov. Brian Sandoval's campaign is offering video chats and lunch with the Republican governor in exchange for monthly donations toward his re-election.

Campaign officials say the strategy is aimed at smaller donors but critics say it is in poor taste and could raise the notion of pay for play.

An email entitled "exclusive benefits" sent by the campaign's finance director Kate Szafran offers various levels of access and perks for monthly contributions ranging from $10 to $100.

Sandoval's campaign manager Jeremy Hughes says the trinkets and face time are an attempt to appeal to grassroots voters. He scoffs that the fundraising tactic could be viewed as pay-for-play.

President of the Nevada Center for Public Ethics Martin Dean Dupalo says the pitch is poorly worded and could backfire with voters.
