@jmartNYT @DeanHeller This is a good question that I will answer definitively.

“I don’t want to talk about what we’re not going to agree on.” – Sen. Dean Heller I have watched the Dean Heller-Harry Reid interview on "What's Your Point?" twice now. And after reading the transcript, I realized I still missed stuff. Below is a lightly edited version of the transcript with my annotations. Jeff Gillan: Joining me today is Nevada’s delegation to the U.S. Senate at our table for what we are told is an unprecedented joint interview; Democrat Harry Reid and Republican Dean...
Gov. Brian Sandoval has 66-1 odds of becoming the GOP presidential White House nominee in 2016 and 100-1 odds of becoming president, according to bookmaker William Hill. So there is a chance. The unkindest cut of all: Sandoval's odds of wining the nomination are the worst of any listed except for fellow cellar-dweller Donald Trump. Sandoval also is tied for last, with the likes of Dennis Kucinich and Kathleen Sebelius, in the race for the White House. The humilation! Sandoval was added after...
Two new political action committees filed last week are designed to boost the chances of Larry Burns in the sheriff's race and to assist the gay marriage movement: Badges for Burns would be a willing receptacle for police unions hoping to boost the ex-captain's campaign. Police Protective Association chief Chris Collins confirmed that the three cop unions are hoping to fund an independent expenditure campaign to help their man. (UPDATE: Collins said this is not the PAC they will use if they do...
“I’m not the one with the checkbook. The consequences of inaction have been conveyed.” – Robert Uithoven, Sue Lowden’s campaign manager, 4/30/10 Almost exactly four years ago, Sue Lowden’s U.S. Senate campaign was struggling for money. She was still well ahead of her primary opponents, Sharron Angle and Danny Tarkanian, in her own polling. But she was getting pounded on the "Chickens for Checkups" issue by Patriot Majority, a front group for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Pollster Todd...
Lieutenant governor hopeful Sue Lowden has filed a "no activity" report with her still-unresolved U.S. Senate campaign from 2010, indicating she has not paid any of the $600,000 debt she owes. The form, attached here, is required because her campaign committee cannot be closed until the Federal Election Commission accepts a debt settlement plan she submitted weeks ago. But nothing prevents her from paying off her creditors, something she has chosen not to do as she runs for lieutenant governor...
FOX's Sean Hannity and Planet Loon's Michele Fiore were on his show together Monday evening and let yours truly have it. Enjoy:
The state Republican Party has no money or respect, but it overflows with chutzpah. How else to explain Chairman Michael McDonald's remarkable attempt to raise money through a golf tournament next week asking for up to $10,000 in sponsorships and touting a gushing, airbrushed bio of himself? The Inaugural Chairman's Cup Golf Tournament looks like a parody, but it's real. Why? "THE CHAIRMAN NEEDS YOUR HELP!" Does he ever! And how clever is this: "President Obama has played more than 160 rounds...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's leadership PAC gave $5,000 to lieutenant governor's hopeful Lucy Flores last month, trying to boost her chances in the race to keep Gov. Brian Sandoval from running against him in 2016. The Searchlight Leadership Fund, which was boosted by about $50,000 from health care PACs, also gave $5,000 to Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager, who is being challenged in a Democratic primary by ex-state Sen. Mike Schneider, who is backed by labor and some progressives...
Former Speaker Joe Dini dies, two years after the passing of fellow legislative giant Bill Raggio. Sen. Dean Heller calls an armed mob of sovereign nation folks standing up for rancher Cliven Bundy “patriots.” The Legislature fails to act on a proposed margin tax, leaving it to voters. This trio of events may seem unrelated. But they point to the same affliction, one crippling the body politic and one too often overlooked: the loss of respect for institutions. This degradation has occurred...
