In the race for governor-in-waiting, Lucy Flores is going up first, with an ad running during World Cup games, including twice during US-Germany later this week. The ad uses the most famous player in the world and the frenzy over the sport, especially among Hispanics, to begin the process of energizing Latinos behind the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor. The goal (ahem) obviously is to contrast Flores' life story with her GOP foe, Mark Hutchison, who already is being portrayed by the...
Good morning, everyone. We can’t get a national political convention, but Las Vegas can still get the convention it deserves: Next month, the ninth annual gathering of climate change deniers will be held here. The most appropriate venue for The Heartland Institute event is The Las Vegas Review-Journal, but organizers have instead chosen Mandalay Bay. (Maybe because that building, unlike the RJ, has windows and good food?) Perhaps they will be arguing that nothing has happened to the wave pool’s...
Good morning, everyone. I must say that, as ever, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid amuses with his latest crusade. No, not the Kochs, although I am sure that will not abate. I am talking about his epiphany after three and a half decades in DC that the football team’s name is offensive. I suppose this is long-simmering outrage that finally percolated. Reid’s office told me he has never been to a Redskins game. But, it’s clear, he has always loved Indians, except, perhaps, when the gaming...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 139 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 122 Good morning, everyone. The regular NBC/WSJ poll was released this morning with ominous numbers for----everyone. The president’s rating (41-53 percent) is awful, only topped by the Republican Party (29-45). The Democrats (38-40) are not exactly doing swimmingly, but are vibrant in comparison. The Tea Party (22-41) remains manifestly...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Guns and more. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 140 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 123 Good morning, everyone. If you ever wanted to see a video to make you proud to be a Nevadan, this one will do the trick. So she only kinda lives here and doesn’t know the capital. She could have run for Congress in District Four! Maybe she could make up for the faux pas by doing a voter registration spot with Holly...
(NOTE: THIS WILL BE THE LAST WEEKLY REPORT UNTIL JULY 13.) Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Some Nevada economic metrics to consider amid recovery high (DON'T MISS THE CHARTS AT THE BOTTOM!) 2. The Weekly Insiders on voter ID, Gaming Commission changes, more 3. Smartest/dumbest moves and coming campaign developments I was interested how some observers pointed out that the Gaming Commission has been hampered by minorites setting important policy. My insiders seem to think...
“Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.” Jim Rogers said that a lot. He thought much of what he heard was nonsense. He had no patience for it. Come to think of it, he had no patience for…..anything. Rogers, the media kingpin and education advocate who died last week, invited clichés: Force of nature. Man of action. Eccentric rich guy. But the truth is Rogers was as sui generis as almost anyone I have known: A Tasmanian devil with ADD and OCD who didn’t care who got in his way in pursuit of his often-...
Similar bill was vetoed by Gov. Brian Sandoval last session. Wonder which base gets more fired up.... Attached here.
