UPDATE, 12:45 PM, 10/30: While my producer, Dana Gentry, obtained quite a few documents from UNLV that revealed the university in damage-control mode and pressured by gamers, the university withheld many under the flimsy "Executive/Deliberative Process Exemption." That is just ludicrous based on what UNLV released, which also could have fallen under whatever deliberations -- the euphemism for damage control -- took place.
Three ads that show you the state of play:
Democratic County Commissioner Susan Brager takes no prisoners after seeing GOP turnout and uses Roger and Pete; Rep. Steven Horsford goes up against Cresent Hardy with a Tea Party All-Star team; and the tax lady, Carole Vilardo, takes on the DEEPLY FLAWED margin tax, which could lose by a lot.
DAY 13 UPDATE, 8 AM, 10/31:
Statewide numbers will be out soon. A wash, as you can see below, in urban Nevada, so GOP will pick up a little because of rural vote.
Very unlikley GOP gets to 25,000-ballot lead by end of today. But will stay over 20,000, I'd guess.
Imagine a legislative session that can’t even get started because leadership is in limbo and not all legislators are deemed to be…legislators.
This is not a fevered pundit’s imagination. And while the election isn’t over yet, the possibilities are, alas, virtually endless.
The precursor to Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign in THE MOST IMPORTANT STATE IN THE NATION has filed as a political action committee in Nevada.
The filing last week comes as Ready for Hillary staffers have been trying help Democrats this cycle here and elsewhere.
The group has tabbed veteran operative Megan Jones, a former Harry Reid aide, as its local agent.
The goal: "To accept contributions and make expenditures supporting or opposing Nevada candidates."
As Uber starts to meet roadblocks in the Luddite, incestuous backwater known as Nevada, it's worth noting how much money the cab companies have spread around this cycle: $750,000.
More than half of that came from one company, Frias, and its ex-principal, Mark James, who gave $55,000 on his own, including $10,000 to sheriff's candidate Joe Lombardo.
My guess is the industry will have given seven figures by the time Session '15 convenes in February.
The lieutenant governor’s race has been the big disappointment of the general election season.
Buoyed by the name recognition he received in his spirited primary with Sue Lowden and possessing a huge financial advantage, GOP state Sen. Mark Hutchison has run a “No Apologies” general election. Hutchison regularly says he “won’t apologize” for living the American Dream or for being supported by Gov. Brian Sandoval.
