Congressional hopeful Danny Tarkanian has sent a cease and desist letter to his opponent, Steven Horsford, and TV stations, claiming a new ad defames him and contains a similar claim that won him a previous slander case. Tarkanian asserts that the ad is not unlike one about his being a resident agent for telemarketers that former state Senate opponent Mike Schneider ran, which resulted in a defamation judgment. But Horsford did not go nearly as far as Schneider, and the Democrat's attorney...
Downtown properties brace for Culinary protest, send out missive on 15-cent increase for health insurance/pension
Remember that Culinary protest I told you about taking place Saturday on the same day as a celebration by the busiensses? A group of casinos are informing their employees -- a version of what is below was also sent in Spanish -- of their side of the story. Check it out (I agreed to remove any names): ------------- As you know right after the signing of the current labor contract with the Culinary Union under which you received ($) increases yearly, business downtown including our properties...
Ah, separation of church and state. "To order voter guides for your church...." That's what this group says at the bottom of a mail piece received today by people in Nevada. It is linked here, so judge for yourself. So they will hand out voter guides in church? Hmmm. The Faith and Freedom Coalition, which is bringing Mitt Romney's fellow LDS member Orrin Hatch to Las Vegas this weekend, was founded by Ralph Reed and has a Nevada affiliate. The mailer here is designed not just to boost Romney,...
The latest from the SOS and Clark County: The Democrats now are up to a 124,000-voter lead over the Republicans in Clark County, about where they were in 2008. Not that the world is the same, but: Barack Obama won Clark County, 58 percent to 39 percent with the same registration edge. Of course, Mitt Romney is not John McCain. McCain essentially abandoned Nevada and did not really campaign here. But you get the point. The statewide lead is now more than 85,000 for the Democrats. It was 100,000...
He might not say so, but Secretary of State Ross Miller's news conference today was designed to head off rumblings, started by the GOP and fueled by tendentious "newspaper," that voter fraud may be occurring in Nevada. The Republican operatives, having been crushed by the Democrats in voter registration -- 124,000 edge in Clark County and counting -- have intimated that the new voter registrations are somehow phony or, in their more sane moments, not "quality" voters who will really show up....
Rep. Joe Heck's pollster found the congressman with an 11 percentage point lead over Speaker John Oceguera in a poll he conducted this week. The survey by Wilson Perkins Allen showed Heck with a 48-37 lead, numbers very similar to the Precision Opinion poll taken last week, but very different from that Oceguera survey I also reported on this blog. The poll also showed that Mitt Romney is defeating President Obama by 51-44 in Congressional District 3. That is ominous, if accurate, for the...
President Obama and Sen. Dean Heller have small leads within the marghin of error in Nevada, according to a new poll conducted by Suffolk University in a partnership with KSNV-TV. The survey also contains many results on other issues, including some state issues such as whether gaming and mining pay their fair share of taxes. The statewide poll of 500 registered Nevada voters was conducted October 6-9, 2012, using live telephone interviews of landline and cell phone users. The margin of error...
Rep. Joe Heck is taking no chances with that new rape victim ad from his opponent, Speaker John Oceguera. He has a new ad featuring scathing reviews of the Oceguera ad from The Agenda's Elizabeth Crum and KLAS-TV's Steve Sebelius.
Crossroads GPS, the Karl Rove brainchild, loaded up today in the Reno and Vegas markets. So, too, did the Obama campaign and the aligned SuperPAC, Priorities Action USA. And that PAC I told you about started by Las Vegas Councilman Bob Beers has made a buy in Reno, presumably to help Greg Brower against Sheila Leslie in that key state Senate race.
