Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is in a dead heat with two prospective GOP challengers, Scott Walker leads the GOP field here and Hillary Clinton leads all Republican comers in Nevada, except for -- wait for it -- Gov. Brian Sandoval. Reid is in a tight race with either Attorney General Adam Laxalt (Laxalt, 48-46) or ex-Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki (Krolicki, 46-45) while Clinton crushes Jeb Bush (50-37) but is in a much closer race with Scott Walker (Clinton, 49-43) and.....Sandoval (Sandoval, 46...
The good folks at DailyKos have provided me with their maps and data on a comprehensive study of Nevada legislative districts and the difference in performance the last two cycles. Spoiler alert: The Democrats tanked in 2014. Check it out. Senate 2014: Assembly 2014: Senate 2012: Assembly 2012:
AG responds to Dane's attorney with legal arguments; Dane's attorney responds to AG with bizarre attack
In the ongoing attempt by the secretary of state and the attorney general to probe GOP activist Tony Dane's suspicious quarter-million-dollar PAC contribution, the AG pointed out that the subject of the probe's lawyer apparently missed the point. The attorney then responded, in what seems to be his style, with a bizarre, invective-filled letter that attacked Attorney General Adam Laxalt and -- sniff -- some "blogger" who broke the story. Ralston and Laxalt, together again, for the first time! I...
In testimony slated to be given Wednesday before the House Judicary Committee, Attorney General Adam Laxalt plans to try to steer the discussion away from the political hot button of immigration to "the President’s attempt to change the law through unconstitutional executive action." According to the attorney general's testimony submitted to the panel and which I have obtained and posted here, he will say: This suit is not about scoring political points on a policy disagreement between...
I think we should start a betting pool on just how many insane effusions will come out of Assemblywoman Michele Fiore's mouth every week. Last week it was the "hot little girls" on campus remark to the paper of record. And now we have a new one for the gaffiest lawmaker ever, who already has said psychotropic drugs will be a major focus for her this session. Here's what she said on her radio show this weekend: "I call it my terminally ill bill," she said of new legislation she has proposed (no...
Two disparate events Wednesday will showcase Nevada with the ongoing immigration reform debate as a backdrop. In the Capitol, Attorney General Adam Laxalt will be testifying before the House Judiciary Committee "on the unconstitutionality of President Obama’s executive overreach on immigration," as his office describes it. Laxalt joined 25 other AGs in a lawsuit that they won in a Texas court last week. Also on Wednesday, in Florida, Jose Diaz-Balart will be holding a joint MSNBC/Telemundo town...
Ed Vogel loved people. That made him different from many journalists. Ed Vogel loved human interest stories. That made him different from many capital bureau chiefs. Ed Vogel loved to travel around Nevada. That made him different from most urban state reporters. Ed Vogel was different. And that’s part of why he has been so missed from Nevada journalism for the past year and why his passing this weekend at the age of 66 is a reminder that it sometimes takes a character to write well about other...
You may have heard that the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the state's largest and least complete newspaper, has been sold after many budget cuts and with fears of more to come. The new owners are coming to visit next week, so the staff has been advised to clean up and look sharp. Here's the memo: All: As mentioned yesterday, executives from New Media will be in the building Monday to see what they're buying. This would be a good opportunity to do some early spring cleaning. If you need a bin...
Michele of the Thousand Tax Liens and the Mouth That Gored (Herself) talked to The Chronicle of Higher Education. Read it and weep.
Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske has no position on the governor's tax plan for education, leaving Lt. Gov. Mark Hutchison as the only constitutional officer elected in The Sandoval Sweep backing the titular head of the GOP. Rarely have I seen an elected official so painfully and obviously dodge taking a position as Cegavske did. This what I received about 24 hours after asking from her spokeswoman, Catherine Lu: Secretary Cegavske is currently following its progress through the Legislature...
