The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is up with its second ad using supposedly credible sources to pound Rep. Joe Heck on his infamous "pyramid scheme" comment about Soical Security. So Oceguera is trying to push women away from Heck with his ads and the national Democrats are going for seniors. Could it work? Maybe.

The third-quarter numbers: Sen. Dean Heller: $1.9 raised, $1.9 on hand Rep. Shelley Berkley: $1.65 raised, $925,000 on hand So Berkley has spent a lot more than Heller to try to keep the race close (mission accomplished) and compete with all of that outside money. It also explains why the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has sent some cavalry. I wonder if Team Heller wonders whether he should have spent more earlier to try to entomb Berkley. I am pretty sure that the Heller folks will...
Mark Mellman, who nailed Nevada for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in 2010, says Rep. Shelley Berkley is slightly ahead of Sen. Dean Heller. 42-39. His memo is linked here. The existence of the poll was first reported by The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza.
A few words about all of these polls on the presidential race in Nevada: Don’t believe them. Sound familiar? Yes, I was telling you the same thing two years ago when every poll (almost) showed Sharron Angle would be the next U.S. senator from Nevada. That didn’t happen, and all of those polls were wrong for different reasons, which eventually comes down to the same reason: You hear the cliché all the time that polls are snapshots in time. That is true, but it also highlights the basic problem...
The Democrats now have a larger voter registration edge over Republicans in populous Clark County than in 2008, when the party swept to top-to-bottom victories. The numbers continue to make Mitt Romney's path to victory very difficult and Dean Heller's road to a full Senate term quite problematic. Barack Obama won Clark by 19 percentage points in 2008 en route to a smashing 12-point statewide win. I doubt he'll do that this cycle, but if he wins by 12 to 14, he will win the state pretty easily...
Democrats stretch to pound Heller on "these people" remark; Democratic Hispanic "leaders" willing to act outraged
On Thursday evening in the U.S. Senate debate sponsored by the Nevada Broadcasters Association, Sen. Dean Heller responded to a question about immigration thusly: "Let’s go back to the question itself. And the key is that I want to make sure that everybody succeeds that’s here in this country -- that’s the goal. That’s why we continue to push English. I think English is important in order to have success here in this country. We talk about immigration reform. I think that’s one thing my...
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,...
