During his appearance in Sparks on Thursday, Donald Trump said he had heard the same nonsensical conspiracy theory about Secretary of State John Kerry's daughter's connection to Iran -- the implication being that this affected his negotiations on the nuclear deal. The Boston Globe's Kevin Cullen and others have debunked this garbage. But Trump was all ears during a Q & A after his speech: Female Supporter: "The rumor that I heard is that John Kerry's daughter married a physician in Iran...
Following up on his rebuke from the bench when he denied the tax repeal petition put forth by Citizen Outhouse's Chuck Muth, Judge Todd Russell has written a thorough evisceration of the attempt, setting forth language that jeopardizes the ongoing effort by the Political Arsonists Club of Nevada. Russell, in his decision posted below, essentially said Muth does not know the law and made no attempt to abide by it. It's almost as if he is still soliciting money for the tax repeal effort just to...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Exclusive look at Nevada presidential race contributions 2. Seaman vs. Nelson in SD6 3. Laxalt vs. Sandoval 4. Mulroy to Wynn board 5.Angle moving toward U.S. Senate race 6. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week My insiders think, as do I, that SD6 comes down to Seaman’s anti-tax campaign vs. Nelson’s socially conservative base. Many think Seaman has the edge. She may. But if she wins the primary, the Dems have a solid edge in the general. It’s a D...
Early Saturday evening, Assemblyman Erv Nelson sent an email to his legislative colleagues, a brief but warm missive informing them he would be running for Mark Lipparelli's state Senate seat. What ensued showed once again (as if we need another reason) how unfit for office Assemblywoman Michele Fiore is as she responded (replying all!) with a vicious and illiterate attack on Nelson, implying he was illegally moving into the district and saying her BFF Victoria Seaman was going to "kick your...
Attorney General Adam Laxalt this morning filed suit against the federal government's sage grouse land-use plan, going against the wishes of Gov. Brian Sandoval, who has been negotiating to prevent a listing of the bird. "By pursuing litigation now, the Attorney General is acting in his personal capacity and does not represent the State of Nevada, the Governor, or any state agencies," Sandoval said in an unusally sharp rebuke to the AG. (Full statement below) The lawsuit, which you can see...
I broke the news late Tuesday afternoon that Assemblyman Brent Jones and state Sen. Don Gustavson had written a letter urging Sharron Angle to run for the U.S. Senate to take Harry Reid’s seat that she failed to win in 2010. (I tried to contact all three but no luck.) Then, late Tuesday evening, the full letter was posted here. And with a postscript added by Angle, it became clear this was a sanctioned effort by her (I thought so anyhow because she and Gustavson are pals) and that she really...
Here is the ad that One Nation, a GOP SuperPAC intended to be an alternative to the Harry Reid-driven Patriot Majority, is spending $800,000 on for the next few weeks in Nevada on behalf of Senate hopeful Joe Heck.
On Tuesday evening in Reno, a fundraiser for Republican Pat Hickey's anointed replacement for his Assembly seat will take place, with a guest list that indicates just how committed people are to ensuring that the seat is not turned over to an anti-tax zealot. I have seen some legislative fundraiser host committees in the South that are so stuffed with luminaries and lobbyists that they scream anointment. But the one that Jill Tolles, a longtime education activist and well connected member of...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Diving into the congressional FEC reports – who did what and who gave to whom and what the numbers mean – exclusive analysis of the numbers 2. The Weekly Insiders on the third-quarter reports 3. My insiders on the Dem debate 4. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week I went through the reports in CD3 and CD4 to get details of what happened. Those results are below for you to peruse. My insiders had some great thoughts, as usual: ►On the story I broke last...
