I think I see a pattern developing. First, the Nevada Jobs Coalition, funded primarily last cycle by Gov. Brian Sandoval's PAC, went up with a site (The Justin Jones Report) and a soon-to-be TV ad going after the SD9 incumbent. Now, the same group has a new site, The Marilyn Dondero Loop Report, and another brutal ad (this one just digital). Yes, this stuff all has limited utility in a state Senate race, with mail providing the most help and doing the most damage. But in these races, and state...
MGM Resorts International Chairman Jim Murren, his wife and the resort's PAC maxed out to the state Democratic Party's federal account last month, records show. Jim and Heather Murren gave $10,000 each and the MGM PAC gave $5,000 to the party, which has $384,000 on hand. (The state GOP has yet to file, but my guess is the cash on hand is close to zero.) Jim Murren has long tilted toward the Democrats and even did an ad for Democrat Numero Uno Harry Reid in 2010. This report also does not...
Mayor Goodman rants at town hall, goes off on audience member, accuses County Commission of trying to kill stadium
UPDATED, 8:15 AM, Monday, 9/22/14: We now know who the mayor berated and questioned what he had done to "make the community a better place." Turns out a lot. Brent Mangus, who walked out after the mayor assailed him, sent me this Friday: I am the person at the soccer stadium meeting last night at Rogich MS that Ms. Goodman went off on. I would love to have the opportunity to tell Ms. Goodman what I have done for this community. In order to maintain some decorum at the meeting I said nothing...
I knew the picture of state Senate Minority leader Michael Roberson with teachers union leaders would be used in the campaign. And here it is. How many Democratic state senators and strategists' heads can explode at once?
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. My take on the State of the Races, four weeks out from early voting beginning 2. The Weekly Insiders on Adam Laxalt’s chances and the state Senate’s future 3. Smartest/dumbest moves, coming campaign developments Great lines of the week from my crew: ►Erin Bilbray can’t catch a break. Every week there’s another nail in her coffin (that’s “General Un-American” to you). ►It’s all about TV until early voting starts. I.Es will play a big role but the...
Carson City, Jan. 5, 2015 – Gov. Brian Sandoval and legislative leaders today announced the “Moving Nevada Forward” plan, a combination of taxes and reforms that they said will lay the groundwork for the state’s future. With the quartet of legislators arrayed behind him in front of the state Capitol, and in a scene reminiscent of last year’s Tesla announcement, Sandoval invoked the economic development triumph in his remarks. “This is the right thing to do for our state and how fitting that we...
After covering politics long enough, you think you lose the capacity to be astonished. But I find, especially in Nevada, this is not so. How else to explain a forum Saturday during which one candidate for attorney general appeared not to know the difference between the public records law and the Open Meeting Law and finished by declaring he had no support from Nevada lobbyists, when his campaign manager, a registered Carson City advocate, was in the room. I’ve seen poor debate performances. I’...
The ad below is online and about to go on TV with a lot of money behind it, I am reliably told. It is about this case in which state Sen. Justin Jones worked for Sands boss Sheldon Adelson and which came up when he first won his state Senate seat by 300 votes in 2012. The ad below -- people with goatees look SO sinister -- and this web page show this race is about to get nasty. He is running against Becky Harris. Here's the spot, which is produced by the Nevada Jobs Coalition, run by Team...
