Meet the new bosses, same as the old bosses. Donors, mostly from casinos and business interests, have spent about $6.6 million this election cycle on races for the Legislature, with two state senators, GOP Minority Leader Michael Roberson, and Democrat Justin Jones, running in arguably the most important race in the state, leading the way with more than $450,000 raised each. That’s according to a Ralston Reports analysis of 70 different campaign accounts since Jan. 1, 2013, including incumbents...
How badly to do some Republicans want Assemblyman Jim Wheeler out? Judging from the mailers hitting in his district, and funded by a PAC set up to defeat him, the answer is: Pretty badly. Calling an elected official a "local nut" and a "national embarrassment" ain't exactly subtle. The mailers come courtesy of the Nevada Republican Majority PAC, set up by Genoa resident James Hartman. Hartman was a longtime GOP official in Northern California who has always loved Nevada and recently moved here...
You write stuff, you get criticized. Do it long enough and you are called many names by trolls and blowhards, partisans and pedants. Fair enough. But rarely have I seen anything as mendacious as what was posted by Kathryn Jean Lopez at National Review Online’s “The Corner” Wednesday evening. First let me say that I am a great admirer of NRO writers and contributors, including Jonah Goldberg and Jim Geraghty. But this post by Lopez is simply a tendentious piece of garbage, which intentionally...
The umbrella labor group that wants to elect ex-state Sen. Mike Schneider to Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager's seat sent out an alert Wednesday for a weekend phone bank. But Brager has raised three quarters of a million dollars and the Culinary is not helping the labor effort because it is preparing to go on strike. And an independent expenditure campaign has begun pounding Schneider (there is one helping him, too), with a new, brutal mail piece below. The alert:
Ten days ago, lieutenant governor hopeful Sue Lowden received a $20,000 infusion for her campaign from the most important Republican donor in Nevada. Sheldon Adelson and his family gave the money to Lowden a week before the disclosure deadline, partly compensating for her own failure to infuse the campaign with a lot of personal money. One Lowden corporation put in $5,000, Paul Lowden put in $2,000 and a few other Lowden entities and the candidate gave about $5,000. Hardly significant. That’s...
Slate cards, where parties or groups put out a list of candidates, are nothing new. But the one below, which hit GOP homes last week and was funded by a Harry Reid pal, is obviously intended to give lieutenant governor candidate Sue Lowden a last-minute boost. Look at that description of her decades of contributing to GOP candidates. I wonder why that is in there. I wonder if Michael McDonald has been to Waterloo. Or....how many times.
I am sad to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest affront to freedom in the history of our nation. A few years ago, a great Nevadan, Brian Krolicki, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the state up to compete for the Republican National Convention. This momentous declaration came as a great beacon light of hope to dozens of Fourth Estate slaves who had been seared in the flames of the withering injustice of Tampa traffic jams. It came as a joyous...
Nevada voters do not support web gaming, don't like the idea of taxing business and are divided over the BLM's handling of the Cliven Bundy affair, a new survey says. The poll was conducted this week for Las Vegas Sands by Chris Wilson of 500 likely voters (margin of error is 4.4 percent). I've seen the poll; there are no questions designed to skew the results. But my guess is some may discount the results because the company, chaired by Sheldon Adelson, is against online gaming. It's real,...
