GOP leaders have sent out a slate card that inlcudes a judge running against a friend of Sheldon Adelson, causing the Sands boss to cut off the county party as he has cut off the state.
"No money anymore for the Clark County GOP from us," Adelson political point man Andy Abboud told me after Clark County Chairman Dave McKeon put Susan Bush, running against Adelson pal Ron Israel, on the slate card, which is sttached here. Adelson had given the ocunty party $30,000, hoping it could be comepetent where the state party has been a joke.
It may be too little, too late. But this spot is one of the best of the year.
I want to vote against the margin tax. I really do.
I recoil at the idea of making serious tax policy at the ballot box. The tax is not written well – it has a fiscal cliff, the rate is too high. And I do not want to lose my faith in the Legislature to do its job, as hard as the Gang of 63 tries to make me do so.
I have many reasons to vote against it. But I just may vote for it.
Tesla Chairman Elon Musk's other company doing business in Nevada gave nearly $40,000 to lawmakers and Gov. Brian Sandoval right before the special session that ratified the gigafactory deal and shortly after the 15-day post-session fundraising blackout period ended.
The largest donation from Solar City was a $7,000 thank you to Sandoval right after the blackout period ended, but the company also gave to key lawmakers and partisan caucus PACs, including in the days before the session started.
