It took awhile because he has been traveling and spending time with his family. But I finally got a response to my nearly week-old question to Gov. Brian Sandoval's office about whether the governor's choice for attorney general, Adam Laxalt, is right about Yucca Mountain. That is, was he correct in this passage from a piece by the Reno Gazette-Journal's Ray Hagar: When asked if Yucca Mountain was a good idea for Nevada, Laxalt said: “That is a policy decision for people like the governor...
UPDATED, 7/15/14: Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been added to this event. She will be in Las Vegas next week and also will be doing a breakfast the following day for CD3 hopeful Erin Bilbray. (I have attached the updated invite for the Flores event.) Harry Reid proxy Lucy Flores recently received some flattering coverage from MSNBC. But closer to home, the Democratic lieutenant governor hopeful recently lost her campaign manager and now is touting a fundraiser...

As for the races, I asked for baselines less than four months out: LG: The group says solid Hutchison; I say lean Hutchison. AG: Most say Miller is favorite; I...
In case you missed it (and you probably did), the primary season ended. In case you care (and you should), the general election season has begun. Well, sort of. As the lucky flee to their SoCal or Tahoe summer escapes and as everyone at home hopes politicians will leave them alone until Labor Day, here are THE 10 questions about the November election, which we need to complete before answering the more important one: Will Harry Reid run for re-election? 1. Will Prince Harry’s machine be enough...
