The three amigos? You’ve heard Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn are against online gambling. Now, Atlantis chief John Farahi has joined the chorus, telling me Tuesday that he is opposed to web gaming. How opposed? “100 percent,” he said by phone. “1,000 percent.” Farahi said he recently convened a meeting of gaming executives and invited, among others, Adelson lieutenant Andy Abboud, to talk about the threat of online gaming. “Morally and for the health of our society, having gaming in people’s...
Update, 2:30PM: Reid will reimburse campaign: "I thought it would be nice to give supporters and staff thank-you gifts that had a personal connection and a Searchlight connection, but I have decided to reimburse the campaign for the amount of the expenditure.” ---- The Federal Election Commission has sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's campaign, asking for more information on why he listed an expenditure of more than $11,000 $16,000 in "holiday gifts." The gifts, I have...
UPDATE, 3/24/14: And then there were three. ---- The Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada has erected two political action committees, one to try to pass the margin tax and another to promote taking mining taxation out of the Constitution. I'm not sure how much money they can raise, but Nevadans for Mining Fairness and Nevadans for Corporate Responsibility, both filed last week, create vehicles for the groups to try to combat the corporate interests that will fund opposition. The pro...
After the last of the pitches by cities vying to host the 2016 Republican National Convention, Chairman Reince Priebus sat down with his aides. Here’s what happened: Priebus: So what do you think? Aide No. 1: Has to be Vegas. Aide No. 2: I agree. Aide No. 3: Dallas was pretty impressive, though. Priebus: What did you like about Dallas? Aide No. 3: Well, they talked about having the Cowboy cheerleaders come to events. And Tony Romo promised to schmooze, too. Aide No. 1: Romo? So what? What’s he...
One week after a Republican front group attacked attorney general hopeful and Secretary of State Ross Miller on the air, a Democratic front group filed a complaint with the state. Nevadans for A Brighter Future (I love these PAC names), headed by former police union leader Dave Kallas, alleges that the dark money State Government Leadership Foundation needs to disclose its donors. The incandescent folks behind the PAC have had to disclose, and those forms show Democrats such as ex-Speaker...
The email went out early Monday morning from Sue Lowden’s campaign manager, Tom Letizia: It's been a few months since we had a meeting with our top supporters to discuss the Lieutenant Governor's race. As you know Sue has been tirelessly working the state from one end to the other and the results are showing. We have some exciting polling information we want to confidentially share with you and the rest of our group at this meeting. The email urged supporters to come to a meeting Thursday...
The margin tax would raise $725 million to $825 million a year and would be "far more burdensome" than the Texas version, a Lone Star state taxpayers association chief asserted this week. Dale Craymer made the claim in a letter to his Nevada counterpart, Carole Vilardo, who already has raised numerous questions about The Education Initiative. The letter, posted below, says the Nevada tax has a much higher rate than the Texas franchise tax on which it is based and corrals businesses the Texas...
Please use the comments section. Picture, taken by Reid aide Kristen Orthman, is from a Clean Energy Project event Thursday. Mine: "It just would be so nasty what I would do to you, Brian, that I can't help but laugh thinking of your agony."

Ex-Florida Gov and prospective 2016 presidential hopeful Jeb Bush is coming to Las Vegas next week for the Republican Jewish Coalition meeting, but plans to make time to raise money for his beleaguered colleague and possible running mate, Gov. Brian Sandoval. Sandoval, who has to sweat out whether he will win by 40 or 50 percentage points in November, will raise money that could be used to help state Sen. Mark Hutchison, who is running for lieutenant governor and, should he win, could allow...
