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.
In a letter sent to Americans for Prosperity, Secretary of State Ross Miller has informed the conservative group that he believes it has broken Nevada election laws. The probe was prompted by the Sun's Anjeanette Damon's report. The letter is linked here. I wonder if the partisan dogs will be unleashed. Actually....I don't wonder.
In a document filed in federal court, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has asked a judge to allow it to register a $17 million judgment against congressional hopeful Danny Tarkanian, citing the Las Vegas businessman's failure to respond to a previous motion. Tarkanian had hoped to stave off any damage from the judgment until after the election. But the submission today (linked here) asks the court to rule a week from Monday on whether the judgment can be certified -- thus allowing the...

Oceguera double down on charges about Heck's record on women's issues, despite torrent of media criticism
Speaker John Oceguera’s congressional campaign not only won’t pull down an ad that has been universally condemned by the media, but he put out a release today again attacking Rep. Joe Heck on women’s issues. The spot implies Heck voted against funding for a rape crisis center – it actually says on screen he “voted against rape crisis center,” which, actually, is about as true as saying he wants to “end Medicare.” He voted against an omnibus appropriations bill that included funding for a rape...
