@DrCamiloOrtiz @MyLifeOnTheDL She might be if I hadn't also used the numbers. And it's not misleading either way. It's a big jump.

After successful attorney general candidate's campaign manager, Robert Uithoven, asserted Adam Laxalt was the first statewide candidate in modern history to win while losing both urban counties, I wondered if that was true. So I had the nonpareil researchers in the Legislative Counsel Bureau's library check for me. And you know what? Uithoven was not far from right. I guess it depends how you define "modern." Here's what the research found: The LCB folks found two examples of statewide races in...
My previous post a few minutes ago was from the Reno chamber about its love for education despite the margin tax murder. As if on cue, the Las Vegas Metro Chamber just sent out one, too. It's 2003 all over again: (I HAVE UPDATED WITH ANNOTATIONS.) Dear Las Vegas Metro Chamber Member: The time has come to have some serious tax reform discussions. (Always, always, start with a joke!)After the recent defeat of the Margin Tax Initiative, we shared with you that the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of...
Here's what just went out -- I have helpfully annotated -- in a message echoing what other business and gaming folks have said, and what the governor has planned, which is reforms for money, or is it money for reforms? From: Chamber Government Relations [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Tuesday, November 18, 2014 10:20 AMTo:Subject: The Election is Over; Now the REAL Work Begins Dear Chamber Member: First of all, thank you for your membership. Your commitment of time and resources...
(Second day in a row with Constant Contact problems. Sorry, dear Flashees.) <p>Good morning, everyone. I’m hoping the Constant Contact server problems are fixed and the Morning Flash actually arrives in the morning. Apologies for Monday’s delay. I have also finally updated my site so all the Flashes are there. I will try to keep them updated so you can always go on the site to see them.</p> <p>Looking forward to a special treat tonight, speaking <a href="https://www....
(Constant Contact, the email program to deliver Flash, has been down all morning.) So here is a version for you to read. Please excuse typos and the annoying coding needed for Constant Contact.) <p>Good morning, everyone. Premium subscribers this weekend were treated to some great insight from my new, expanded group of insiders about what’s to come. Most think a revenue package has a chance and that new Speaker Ira Hansen is not some crazy, wild-eyed Hansen, but one longtime lobbyist...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Cowboy Tom om More Cops and---MORE. DAYS UNTIL THE GREATEST LEGISLATIVE SESSION EVER BEGINS: 80 DAYS UNTIL THE 2016 election: 725 Good morning, everyone. Can you imagine Dean Heller saying what Roger Wicker said today about Harry Reid? “So, you know, frankly I'll say this: I think Harry Reid may decide to retire. That's my prediction." This is why I think, for the Republicans, Wicker was a better choice for the National Republican Senatorial...
Good morning, everyone. This is a little early today, dear Flashees, because I have to give a speech to Hispanics in Politics. Never done this before: Going to start by telling the group’s members what an embarrassment HIP was this year and how to make it better. I hope they don’t throw me out – I love Dona Maria’s! Historic day today for Nevada as both senators face elections: Harry Reid for minority leader and Dean Heller for chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. If they...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Brookings' Mark Muro on STEM, Tesla and more. DAYS UNTIL THE GREATEST LEGISLATIVE SESSION EVER BEGINS: 82 DAYS UNTIL THE 2016 election: 727 Good morning, everyone. The news that ex-Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli is interested in replacing state Sen. Mark Hutchison creates a clear frontrunner embraced by Majority Leader Michael Roberson and, I’d guess, Gov. Brian Sandoval. Assemblyman Wes Duncan may still apply, but he sees...
ood morning, everyone. Happy Veterans Day. Like everyone else, I give thanks today to all who served and all who sacrificed, including the families of vets. Last night, I talked about what Veterans Day really means and how AG-elect Adam Laxalt forgot what his service meant during his campaign: Freedom to dissent, to question, to push back. On another subject, The Teen and I saw “Interstellar” last night. We both had the same reaction: Good not great, overlong. I am a huge Christopher Nolan fan...
