UPDATE, 2 PM: The company sent a dual message Wednesday. Switch executive Lesley McVay simultaneously sent an almost identical letter to the chamber, resigning from the group's executive committee. (Her letter is posted below.) ---- After months of tension with the chamber over taxes, the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance has lost its chairwoman to the infighting. Switch executive Missy Young notified board members Wednesday in a letter that she would no longer serve as chairman. This comes...
Rookie Democratic Assemblywoman Amber Joiner was so thrilled to be at the bill signing ceremony for the school construction bill that she took a selfie. The picture, which she tweeted (see right), included her Democratic colleagues, Ellen Spiegel, Mike Sprinkle and Olivia Diaz. Two dozen lawmakers attended the ceremony hastily thrown together Wednesday after Senate Bill 207 passed the Assembly with all Democrats and 10 Republicans voting for the measure. But some of those Democrats, including...
It's running in both urban markets, designed to affect the gun debate, and a sign of the group's enduring presence here. But can an ad compete with the NRA's influence in gun-happy Nevada? Or sway a vote?

It's not totally amateurish, but the bar remains high to get something like this done. And check out Jim Marchant's site -- the man who would replace Hambrick has a site that reads like a Citizen Outhouse screed. "It is sad the petitioners have had to resort to outright lies to get...
Team Sandoval has created a nonprofit, Nevada Can Do Better, to help sell his tax plan, and released a new poll showing, among other things: ----Obama, 44-51 (Vegas-46-49!) ----Sandoval, 75-17. Wow. ----Legislature, 40-22. Nearly 40 percent with no opinion. Amazing. ----78 percent say public schools are fair or poor; 67 percent say funding inadequate. ----56-41 for Sandoval tax plan, which is about what the margin tax was before the attacks began. ----40-57, sales tax on services. Not...
