I finally induced Governor Brian Sandoval to utter a safe statement about it. And his anointed choice for lieutenant governor, state Sen. Mark Hutchison, has gotten himself into a bit of a pickle over it. But, unsolicited (although my producer did try to get Majority Leader Mo Denis on "Ralston Reports" today to talk about it), I heard today from the Nevada Senate Democrats, who sent me a statement on SB 192, the proposed Preservation of Religious Freedom Act proposed by Hutchison and Barbara...
UPDATE: Even faster than Krolicki thought: RNC boss Reince Priebus will announce the finalists tomorrow at 10 AM on Twitter! Las Vegas could know in a week if it is a finalist for hosting the Republican National Convention in 2016, Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki said Wednesday. Krolicki, heading up the state's effort, is optimistic that Las Vegas will make that first cut, and he sounded sanguine that the city could get the final nod this spring or summer when the Republican National Committee...
I acknowledge it was a mischievous question. But I wanted to see how both Republican candidates for lieutenant governor, sprinting to the right as fast as they can and potentially in line to succeed Brian Sandoval, would answer during a "Ralston Reports" debate: Is the governor a conservative? His anointed choice, state Sen. Mark Hutchison, first used as evidence that Sandoval had appointed him to sue the federal government over Obamacare. Unsatisfied with that bit of resume-boasting, I pressed...
Here's the money line: "With an effective tax rate approaching 15 percent, Nevada’s effective business tax rate would be materially higher than any other Western state, including, without limitation, California." This has been hinted at for weeks, and I have revealed some of Jeremey Aguero's findings. Now they are in black and white and attached here. Paid for by both sides, released by foes. Watch "Ralston Reports" tonight for more.
Even though they originally wanted to stand up for the state's gay marriage ban, Gov. Brian Sandoval and Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto are being treated as heroes by a new coalition for dropping their opposition. Freedom Nevada, formed to get gay marriage legalized in Nevada, this week sent a letter with an interesting, eclectic array of signatures thanking the governor and attorney general. Among the signers: Caesars Entertainment boss Gary Loveman and top aide Jan Jones Blackhurst;...
Tick Segerblom and Dina Neal were the highest scorers on racial equity issues during the 2013 Legislature, according to a new study from the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada. Four other Democrats were in the 90s and several Republicans got into the 70s. Gov. Brian Sandoval was at 80 percent. More on "Ralston Reports" on Wednesday.
During a contentious “Ralston Reports” debate Monday, lieutenant governor candidates Sue Lowden and Mark Hutchison did something I have never before encountered: They pleaded with me on air to ask the questions they wanted to answer. “I’m ready for another question that deals with my issues,” Hutchison, the state senator, insisted, dodging a question about ex-state senator Lowden’s infamous 2010 bartering comments. “Let’s talk about being lieutenant governor,” Lowden quickly agreed. Being...
This page just went live, an attempt by the Culinary union to dissuade convention-goers for events scheduled at The Cosmopolitan. The page allows you to click on conventions to see when they are occurring at the resort where union picketers have been seen for months. And this page is live just a few days after workers opened the door for a strike on the Strip and/or downtown.
How active will Gondolier Numero Uno Sheldon Adelson be in state races this cycle? The biggest question mark is in the attorney general's race, where Adam Laxalt, a total unknown until recently but the grandson of the former senator, has declared his candidacy against Ross Miller, the secretary of state believed to be a future gubernatorial contender. I have thought that some Republicans, including some close to Adelson, have adopted a Stop Miller Now attitude and will use DC groups such as the...
Dean Heller spoke a lot last week in Nevada. That may have been a mistake. In the space of a few interviews, Nevada’s junior senator, the man from No Labels, defied every label but one: Intellectually disastrous. In the space of 24 hours, Heller revealed what few politicians want out there: He is reckless, uninformed and hypocritical. It was an amazing feat, really. The man affiliated with the group that supposedly transcends partisanship made vicious partisan statements. He contorted himself...
