UPDATED, 1:45 PM: In an amazing tweet today, ex-GOP Chairwoman Amy Tarkanian declared "@NVGOP chairman has little power..told me that it wasn't his idea...he agrees that it's ridiculous but others thought diff." So she is saying: 1. Michael McDonald, who has never uttered a peep of protest, thinks the endorsement process is ridiculous. I tried to confirm, but he didn't respond and -- this is priceless -- the state party said it could not comment. 2. The chairman has no power. How sad. Also, the...
American Bridge is burning one to Las Vegas. And in its torching of the city, the Democratic outfit should have all but guaranteed Las Vegas gets the 2016 Republican National Convention. If national committee boss Reince Priebus and the site selectors back down in the face of this intimidation tactic, they will be showing fear and inviting loathing from Gondolier Numero Uno Sheldon Adelson. This should be the end of any debate over where the convention should go. It’s Vegas, or the national...
As national Democrats prepare to run against the GOP on income equality issues, a giant union has issued a scathing Obamacare document that could undermine that case. "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse" is the title of the UNITE HERE (Culinary parent) document that is posted here and soon to be making its way to Capitol Hill. It is devastating to the Democrats. To wit: Ironically, the Administration’s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to...
If you want any more evidence that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wants Lucy Flores to be lieutenant governor to stop Brian Sandoval from considering a U.S. Senate bid in two years, see below (the invite and the labor pitch): And labor is all-in, too: March 4, 2014 Dear XXXX, I am writing today to urge you to support Lucy Flores for Lt. Governor in Nevada. Senator Harry Reid is...
Time to play Megabucks, governor. On the same day he filed for a second term as the Democratic dwarf list approaches seven, Gov. Brian Sandoval received notice in The Washington Post, as the fifth most likely choice for vice president on the 2016 ticket. Here's what Sean Sullivan wrote: On paper, the governor of Nevada is just what the GOP needs. He's a popular, moderate Hispanic executive from a swing state. Sandoval is expected to cruise to a second term in November, setting him up well for...
In an unusual 7-6 vote, the regents voted today against suspending a rule barring them from honoring sitting elected officials, thus preventing Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani from getting a Distinguished Nevadan award. Giunchigliani had been nominated by Regent Jack Schofield for the most prestigious honor the regents can confer, one a slew of politicians have received after they left office. The regents had to vote to suspend the rule, which would have taken two-thirds, and fell...
Considering how nothing's riding on this-- the future of education funding, the future of Nevada's economy and the stability of the state's tax structure, to pilfer a construct from Jason Robards as Ben Bradlee -- I'm not that surprised every margin tax document gets whipped around in the political maelstrom. When numbers maven Jeremy Aguero released his study paid for by both sides, proponents were furious as teachers union rep Dan Hart all but accused him of cooking numbers he had prepared...
Ed Vogel’s face was crimson as he pointed at the computer. “I talked to that guy yesterday,” he yelled at the screen as City Editor Charlie Zobell sat nearby, somewhat stunned. “He didn’t tell me about that.” Vogel was looking at an Associated Press report that a Nevada weather record had been set in Laughlin the previous day. Vogel, who hated to miss any story, especially one about THE WEATHER, could not understand what had happened, how he had missed it. I knew. I sat at my desk at the Las...
See my grade:
The group, Progress Now Nevada, has brought the controversial issue of background checks, which some Democrats think can be a wedge in key races, into the congressional contest in District 3. The organization recorded a town hall last month (Feb. 19) that Rep. Joe Heck gave and picked out his responses to questions (I'm not suggesting any were planted) about the issue. The video is below, but the group focused on Heck's answers on gun shows and a web portal for transactions. Heck said, "If you...
