Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Thoughts on Bilbray's debut 2. The Weekly Insiders on Roberson's new foe 3. Smartes/dumbest political moves of the week 4. Least effective/most effective electeds This week's questions: 1. Please put your biases (and paychecks) aside if you can for these: Right now in the state, who are the single most and least effective elected officials and why? 2. Please give me your assessment of the Michael Roberson-Teresa Lowry matchup. 3. If you saw Erin...
It's no secret that the Democrats hope to use immigration reform against Rep. Joe Heck, nor is it hard to figure out that the incumbent would try to thread the needle on the issue. Hispanics make up 16 percent of Congressional District Three, where both national parties will fight for a seat that is considered one of the more competitive in the country. The issue's potential saliency in the race became obvious this week. In just the last 24 hours, Democratic candidate Erin Bilbray botched an...
"I was indicted and later the charges were dropped." Here is the indictment he's talking about.
Less than 24 hours after her appearance on "Ralston Reports," congressional hopeful Erin Bilbray had her campaign manager issue a series of "clarifications" to "set the record straight." It's hard to straighten a record on videotape, however. And Bilbray, who may have thought better of some of what she said, must not have ever heard that old expression about discretion and valor. Or as a political adviser might say: Stop digging. "Clarification" No. 1 -- Bilbray not only still won't acknowledge...
Trying to capitalize on the intense interest in the UNLV-Nevada football game Saturday, lieutenant governor's hopeful Mark Hutchison is inviting people to "party" with him, Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen. Dean Heller. I have questions: 1. I don't think any of these guys drink. What will they be serving? Lemonade? 2. What colors will they be wearing? Rooting for which team, gentlemen? 3. Will there be no taxes on the drinks? If we have no budget, will we have to pay? Will Hutchison have a med pot...
I asked Democratic ccongressional candidate Erin Bilbray on "Ralston Reports" Wednesday about a fundraising email that Rep. Joe Heck sent out right after she announced almost four months ago. She declined to back away from her characterization of the pitch, made on KNPR in July, that the pitch "was a very personal attack email that he used for his fundraising efforts. And we’re talking about a campaign that’s 16 months out. I think that kind of partisan anger is really turning people off. I...
He already has a primary with Carl Bunce, the Ron Paulite coming at him from the right. Now state Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson has a general election foe, too (assuming he gets there). Teresa Lowry, the longtime prosecutor, has decided to run for that southeast Las Vegas Valley district. I think she has a lot of potential as a candidate, with an impressive history of putting execrable criminals behind bars. But the political graveyard is littered with legislative candidates who...
