TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 5 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 152 Good morning, everyone. Still rocked by the news of Bob Faiss’ death, dear Flashees. I met him shortly after I started covering politics almost three decades ago. He was unfailingly kind to me, and we became very friendly over the years. He was one of a handful of people I consulted when I first started...
Good morning, everyone. Do you watch “Veep,” dear Flashees? The show is always funny and occasionally hilarious, with many DC types saying it is the most accurate portrayal of life in the capital. So many great supporting characters and a brilliant characterization of an ambitious but deeply flawed vice president by Julia Louis-Dreyfus. But this week we found that the show is – it hurts to say this – anti-Nevada! Two things happened on this week’s episode, both of them unforgivsble. First, a...
Good morning, everyone. One week until the madness ends. One week. Thank God. No more robocalls – did you get the one from Herman Cain for Niger Innis? (Is this helpful?) No more ridiculous ads – Sue Lowden is finishing on a positive note with a “I love Nevada” spot (when people in heated races finish positive, sometimes it’s a white flag or a sign the candidate knows his or her negatives are soaring). No more mailers with outlandish claims – unless they are from my HOA, of course! The...
Good morning, everyone. It’s pretty hard not to be impressed with how successful the Culinary union was in settling with all of those downtown casinos, the culmination of a public relations campaign of relentless pressure and saber-rattling. Talk about a well-executed campaign that used brinkmanship to achieve a goal. Definitely the best campaign of the season so far – a low bar to get over this year, but still quite something. And now the real political question: Will the union turn its...
Good morning, everyone. I’m not sure if this is more comical or sad. Great story by the RJ’s Ben Botkin. The headline is priceless: “Illicit recording reveals budding bromance between damaged Las Vegas pols” My favorite line: “It’s unclear if he ever apologized to any Utahns.” We have known for many years that John Bonaventura is a clown in politician’s clothing. So be it. But the slow disintegration of Tom Collins, whom many supporters have tried to help, is tragic. He clearly should not be in...
Good morning, everyone. Most of the time when people attack what I have written or said, I realize it is part of the job. If you have produced as many words as I have, and possess strong opinions and ask tough questions, people will come after you. I get that. One fringe player even set up a web site to attack me; one of his friends once sent out a mail piece to try to hurt me. Fine. Generally, I ignore such stuff. But what happened Wednesday evening I cannot ignore. National Review...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. The insiders with their take ont he primary and their predictions 2. Smartest/dumbest moves and coming campaign developments Lots of great stuff from my insiders this week on the primary and the general, which, once again, put you ahead of the curve, dear premium subscribers. And they love me back, too, as one said: We all need a summer break. Are you going on vacation soon? (Answer: Yes!) Best line of the week: Governor is a strong favorite...
The conventional wisdom has begun to settle, as if the landscape is being re-examined after a major seismic event. Yes, it was The Predictable Primary, with almost no upsets. Yes, it was The Snooze Primary, with near-record low turnout. Yes, it was The Sandoval Primary, with gubernatorial dominance. But beyond the tiresome victory news releases – ON TO NOVEMBER! – and the “lessons learned” instapunditry about an electorate that was one third the size of what we will see in November, some...
Jake Holder, who ran for Congress and got crushed last cycle, and won a contested three-way Democratic primary for Assemblyman Joe Hogan's seat this week, sent an email to a gaggle of Carson City advocates Wednesday that was quite simple: "Hello important lobbyists, "If any of you would like to meet or talk on phone please let me know. And, if you would like to contribute to my campaign, it would be appreciated:" Indeed. Now where do you suspect Holder obtained the list of who these "...
