The Republican Attorneys General Association has produced an ad for attorney general hopeful Adam Laxalt, an attempt to define him in other ways than a devastating law firm evaluation that described him as a "train wreck." The RJ's Laura Myers reported the buy as $200,000 (there's nothing in the public files of the Vegas network stations yet), and Laxalt used the same number in Fallon on Labor Day as he told people RAGA was coming to help. Laxalt's viability, we have always known, is dependent...
Remember that UNLV Center for Business and Economic Research margin tax study that caused all the hullaballoo, except in the two major Las Vegas newspapers that all but ignored it? Well, it has now been "revised," and re-posted on the center's site. CBER boss Stephen Brown said it was not changed under pressure after the administrtation tried to discredit it but because "colleagues pointed out some things that can be improved upon." He mentioned Mary Riddle and Bernard Malmud, who are mentioned...
UPDATE: Sandoval, who is usually not so partisan, is hooking up with the National Republican Congressional Committee for another event while he is in DC. So now he's a "special guest" of Speaker John Boehner & Co. And....Johnny Bench, too! At Nationals Park! Invite attached here. ---- Gov. Brian Sandoval and his proposed understudy, state Sen. Mark Hutchison, are going to DC later this month to raise money, right in the backyard of a man either could challenge in 2016. The fundraisers, a...
UPDATED WITH TRANSCRIPTS OF INTERVIEWS WITH TRUSTEES AND MARTINEZ The attorney general's office has filed a seven-count complaint against the Washoe County School District for its botched firing of Superintendent Pedro Martinez. Martinez is back at work and took a $25,000 settlement, but the AG is not done with the trustees. The AG wants up to $500 for each count from each trustee for violating the Open Meeting Law and the public trust. More to come, but complaint attached here.
Good morning, everyone. A couple of TV notes: I watched almost the entire first season of “Orange is the New Black” over the weekend. Started slow but became quite engrossing as the backstories were revealed, characters were developed. Some predictability but some great characterizations. I also saw the first three episodes of Steven Soderbergh’s “The Knick,” about a turn-of-the-century hospital. Gruesome and dark, but Clive Owen is amazing. Premium subscribers over the weekend were treated to...
The Nevada Jobs Coalition, which raised nearly seven figures last cycle and is run by Team Hutchoval, mailed its first pieces into key state Senate districts during the last few days, with a common theme: Apples. It seems both Becky Harris, running against state Sen. Justin Jones, and Patricia Farley, taking on Assemblywoman Marilyn Dondero Loop, have a lot in common, including apples and Gov. Brian Sandoval. See what I mean by looking at the pieces, which are attached here. The IE, run by Team...
Two months before the general election, UNITE HERE has erected a new site with a quixotic name: "Fixing Obamacare: An Honest Discussion." The site contains a column by the union's leader, D. Taylor, who has been very critical of the Obama Administration, but also has sections criticizing the GOP. The union appears to have an eye toward 2016 here but the impact could be felt in 2014, where Democrats had hoped the deleterious political effects of Obamacare had subsided. "We also know the...
On Labor Day, GOP Treasurer contender Dan Schwartz has made a small TV buy with a couple of 15-second spots. The ads are bio spots (below), with one strangely saying he will "defend the Millennium Scholarships" (the Legislature decides where that money goes) and will recover $50 million "stolen from our classrooms," a reference to this earlier misfire by him. Schwartz recently was pummeled by Democrats for essentially not understanding the state general fund, which he said in a speech was "...
