Chancellor Dan Klaich on Tuesday wrote to state lawmakers to rebut a damaging Review-Journal story that exposed how the system was allowed to write a letter under a consultant's letterhead. The missive, though, addresses mostly issues over the higher ed funding formula and not why an essentially false document was prepared for lawmakers. It also asserts ex-state Sen. Steven Horsford "misunderstood" the relationship between the system and the consultant. Fuel on fire? Posterior-covering? I...
It's not 2010 again. That's the message for Sharron Angle in a new poll for a GOP SuperPAC that shows her losing by -- wait for it -- 56 points to Rep. Joe Heck in her second consecutive attempt to take Harry Reid's U.S. Senate seat. How do you recover from a 56-point deficit? Um, you don't. Game over. In fact, as many of us thought, no game at all. The survey for the Senate Leadership Fund, conducted by the estimable Public Opinion Strategies firm, shows Heck at 67 percent and Angle at 11...
I always thought that Lucy Flores' endorsement of Bernie Sanders was more about her congressional race than his presidential aspirations. And on Wednesday, Sanders showed he is willing to help Flores' candidacy. She leads in many polls based on name recongition but has riased very little money. Sanders wants to help, mentioning her 2014 EMILY's List endorsement (the group is with Susie Lee this cycle and snubbed Flores) in this small-dollar pitch (she will need a lot of these to make any kind...
In her latest email blast, congressional hopeful Michele Fiore links to a interview she did with "Nevada Newsmakers" host Sam Shad, whom she describes as "one of my favorites." It's no wonder why. Shad gives her his entire program -- and I mean gives as in a de facto in-kind donation -- to spew unchallenged all manner of assertions about the BLM, Gov. Brian Sandoval and her Assembly colleagues. Shad asked not one remotely difficult question, and at one point lamented that Fiore had not...
A new poll taken for Senate Democrats shows their candidate in a key district with leads over both possible GOP nominees. The survey, taken by Democratic firm PPP, shows Democrat Nicole Cannizzaro with leads over Republican Assembly members Victoria Seaman and Erv Nelson, with the latter not faring as well in the ballot test. The poll, whose memo I have posted below (and I have seen the entire survey), also indicates some weakness from Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump in the district. The poll...
Muslim congressional candidate legally changed his name as he mulled a race for Rep. Joe Heck's seat
A congressional candidate who says Harry Reid told him he could not win because he is a Muslim petitioned to legally change his Muslim name shortly after he announced his candidacy. Jesse Sbaih, who is seeking Rep. Joe Heck’s seat, was born Mahmoud Ismail Sbaih and filed a petition last November to officially change his name to “Jesse Mahmoud Ismail Sbaih,” records show. The petition was granted in January, ensuring his name would appear on the ballot as “Jesse Sbaih.” Even though sources say...
After getting destroyed in Clark County by Team Sanders, Team Clinton is taking no chances. I told you Wednesday about the initial contact, which was a mixed message of filing grievances and preparing for the May 14 state convention. On Thursday, the campaign, which allowed many of its delegate slots to be filled by Sanders folks, reached out to alternate delegates for a conference call. It's all hands on deck. Hello! I am happy to inform you that you have been selected to represent Clark...
Hillary Clinton's Nevada campaign sent out a missive to delegates Wednesday evening, asking them to fill out grievance forms to gauge the level of irregularities at last weekend's county conventions but also promising an "aggressive volunteer outreach plan" for the state confab May 14. Clinton was crushed by Sanders in Clark County, with reports of odd emails, incomplete lists and bias toward Sanders obviously still rankling her Nevada team. But the Nevada Clinton folks also want to try to...
Democrats added about 12,000 voters to their statewide registration advantage over Republicans last month, benefiting from thousands of voters who registered at the Feb. 20 caucus. This not only potentially changes the statewide dynamic in the presidential and U.S. Senate races -- Democrats now have a 60,000-voter lead -- but also affected key areas down the ticket, including competitive congressional districts -- CD3, Rep. Joe Heck's seat, now has 3,300 more Democrats than Republicans, and CD4...
The two likely nominees for the right to succeed Rep. Joe Heck are in a dead heat, according to a poll taken by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The survey, taken last week, shows synagogue chief Jacky Rosen ahead of state Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson, 30 percent to 29 percent. The poll of 403 CD3 voters has a margin of error of 4.9 percent. The polling memo, which I have obtained and is posted here (I've also seen the entire poll), paints a very optimistic picture,...
