TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Pre-empted for election coverage -- I'll be on, so watch! DAYS SINCE HARRY REID HAS BEEN ON FACE TO FACE: 657 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY: 0 DAYS UNTIL THE TEEN CAN AFFECT THE POLITICAL WORLD: 261 Good morning, everyone. Happy Election Day to all. It’s that day here at Flash World HQ when exhaustion is overwhelmed by adrenaline, where I count down the hours until the polls close and where I get to execute one of...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: A preview of the election, including Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel DAYS SINCE HARRY REID HAS BEEN ON FACE TO FACE: 656 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY: 1 DAYS UNTIL THE TEEN CAN AFFECT THE POLITICAL WORLD: 262 Good morning, everyone. So my predictions are in. And, shockingly, some people disagree with me. Considering I have never been wrong, this is somewhat distressing. But I will soldier on, somehow, through these...
This will be a continually updating blog with facts, analysis and musings about Election 2012: LATEST: Heller's rural domination. I hadn't realized just how badly Rep. Shelley Berkley was destroyed in the cow counties. It's not just that Sen. Dean Heller all but wiped out her 60,000-vote edge in Clark County -- he won the rurals by 52,000 votes. But Heller got more votes in three of the cows -- Carson City, Douglas and Churchill -- than Berkley got in 15. A total destruction. And get this:...
Dean Heller would win by 1 percentage point. The president would win Nevada again. Steven Horsford would defy the polls. "Genius" is a word that is thrown around too easily these days.... In case you missed my predictions, they are here. My only real failing: I believed in the Democratic machine, but didn't realize the potency it would have down the ticket. The scorecard: President: I said 50-46. It was 52-46. That's pretty close and certainly within the margin of error. U.S. Senate: I said 49-...
I wonder, as she was riding in a gondola down the Grand Canal four years ago, perhaps gazing up at her luxury (but discounted) room, if Rep. Shelley Berkley ever thought: “This might be a problem.” I doubt it. But that congressional trip, which she led, with that ill-fated Venezia sojourn, may have cost her a chance at a U.S. Senate seat. Or not. Berkley’s campaign clearly thought this ad, which falsely implied she had charged taxpayers $55,000 for an Italian vacation with her husband, hurt her...
I tend to shy away from the “look at what we learned” thumbsuckers the day after an election. Overall themes often obscure underlying dynamics of individual races. The obvious often mashes the subtle. The results tell a story, but usually only part of it. There is a lot to say about what happened in Nevada on Tuesday – today and later – but only a few things are crystal clear: 1. Registration matters 2. The Republican Party is irrelevant 3. The Hispanic vote here is a growing and...
No human has more chutzpah than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and he showed it again this morning during a DC gaggle with reporters. Here is his exchange with the Las Vegas Review-Journal's capital reporter, Steve Tetreault: QUESTION: Senator Reid, how do you plan to reset your relationship with Senator Heller now that the campaign is over? And do you think the two of you can work together... REID: Dean Heller and I have been friends for 25 years. In a difficult election I had in 19...
A handy guide for Election Night: Remember 70 percent of the vote will be known very early in the evening. Although we don't yet know what Election Day turnout will be like -- I estimate about 300,000 people will vote, about two-thirds in Clark County -- we will know some thing pretty early. ----Clark: When the first early/mail results are posted (we hope, before 8 PM) of the 57 percent who have voted in the South, see if President Obama has more than a 60,000-vote lead. (Democrats have a 71,...
