@jmartNYT @DeanHeller This is a good question that I will answer definitively.
I don't think so but I am not sure.

Two different events -- one at the new ferris wheel, one with pot folks at Dr. Pot's house.
Can she get it enough gross rating points? Good issues for GOP primary electorate? Check. Terrible B & W pic of opponent? Check. Massage your own record ("Never met a tax she liked"). Check. It does sound as if she puts an extra "N" in Hutchison's name, and the production values are not, ahem, high. But I quibble.
It's not often that candidates release poll results showing them losing by a significant margin. But that's what Democratic congressional candidate Erin Bilbray did today, disseminating a polling memo indicating she is behind by 8 percentage points to GOP Rep. Joe Heck. She is alive! Don't bury her yet! Give her money! That is the not-so-subtle message of the release of the polling memo (first reported by the RJ's Steve Sebelius) below from the redoubtable Mark Mellman, the Democratic pollster...
This went out today -- I annotated in italics: Please help us Share This Message - Bundy Family Statement It has been several weeks since the BLM's special forces (special forces!) came into the valley with guns raised, barricading our lands, stealing and destroying our property, and terrorizing the community (oh, the BLM did the terrorizing!). Their original plan was to occupy the land for seven weeks. (Oh, do go on.) They would still...
A group calling itself the Nevada Values PAC plans to file Tuesday to support ex-state Sen. Mike Schneider against Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager in the June primary. The PAC will be primarily funded by labor groups, including SEIU and the AFL-CIO, said Annette Magnus of ProgressNow Nevada who is overseeing the effort. Magnus said as a state senator, Schneider was very supportive of progressive issues such as women's health and development at Red Rock. And, she added, Brager has...
Victor Chaltiel, a close associate of Gondolier Numero Uno Sheldon Adelson, recently contributed $25,000 to a PAC set up my associates of GOP congressional hopeful Niger Innis. Adelson has helped Innis at Chaltiel's urging, sources tell me, because Innis and Chaltiel are friends. At the end of the last fundraising quarter, Chaltiel seeded the PAC with $25,000. The New America PAC NV was filed last September by Innis supporters. The PAC has also funded an ad attacking Innis' primary foe,...
The ads below for Susan Brager, facing ex-state Sen. Mike Schneider, and Mary Beth Scow, confronting disgraced constable John Bonaventura, start Monday. The positivity overwhelms me.
UPDATE: Missed this but eagle-eyed reader points out Team Sandoval spelled "Nevada" as "Neveda" on his piece. See color cover below. He is an immortal lock for re-election, a sure winner even if he proposed a billion-dollar tax increase today. But Gov. Brian Sandoval is still trying to build his war chest and take no chances two weeks before early voting starts, sending a mail piece late last week to remind people who he is, how he saved the state and brought the Democrats in line. The piece...
Sometimes Harry Reid is crazy like a fox. But sometimes he’s just crazy. I’m not suggesting non compos mentis, although I’m sure some Republicans, Bundyville residents and blog commenters might disagree. I’m saying that for someone who has long catalogued Reidisms, from the inartful to hyperbolic to nasty to just wrong, I don’t remember when the Senate majority leader has packed more “what did he say?” moments into one week. From his patently false exaggerations about his favorite brothers from...
I kid you not. What's below is a version of a web ad she has had out for some time. It is a response to this ad from Mark Hutchison. Yes, that's Hutchison, not "Hutchinson," as the ad below says. Oy. Also, when you are talking about donations to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the bete noir of the GOP, you also are playing into the opposition's hands and raising your own negatives, too. Luckily, ironically, Lowden can only afford a paltry buy for this abomination. Below is the version...
