NRSC uses Robin Leach impersonator to pound Berkley as having lifestyle of rich and famous, funded by taxpayers
The National Republican Senatorial Committee is using someone imitating Robn Leach to declare that Rep. Shelley Berkley is rich and staying in nice hotels around the world and charging taxpayers for it. New ad:
The latest state numbers, linked here, show a statewide decrease of 3 percent from August 2011 to August 2012. Strip is down a little, Washoe up a bit.
Two new Nevada ads just starting show how Danny Tarkanian is counting on the NRCC to go negative on Steven Horsford and also indicate how Greg Brower's brief run for Congress last year is coming back to haunt him -- the anti-Brower ad is from unions and a national Demoartic group. The ads:
That and more in Part 2 of my interview with Steve Wynn:
With a couple of days until the vice presidential debate and a week until the next confrontation between Mitt Romney and President Obama, it’s worth talking honestly about the role of the moderator. I inserted that adverb because most of what’s been said about Jim Lehrer’s performance – if absence can be called a performance – has been skewed by partisan biases. Republicans argued how wonderful it was, as Peggy Noonan wrote in an otherwise excellent column, that Lehrer was “old school and a...
By a margin of 54-46, Ralston Report site voters say Sen. Dean Heller will not be in office next year. Just under 500 people voted in the poll -- significantly more than the first one. So either Rep. Shelley Berkley's campaign took more time to juice the survey, I have more Democrats than Republicans visiting the site or......
As the debate polling fallout continues, national Republicans are re-investing in Nevada. And as polls continue to show Danny Tarkanian up on Steven Horsford, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee also is funneling more money into the state. Team Romney plunked down some signficant money in Reno and Vegas today and the National Republican Senatorial Committee did the same. The DCCC buy is in Vegas, where most of the district's population resides. Is this a sign the GOP senses it can...
Speaker John Oceguera's pollster says his client is losing by 5 percentage points to Rep. Joe Heck, lower than some recent surveys but right in line with what the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee says. Oceguera and the national Democrats are pushing back against recent polls -- including one posted this weekend on this site -- that show Heck with a double-digit lead. Just as it was unusual for the DCCC to release a poll showing its guy losing, so, too, is it out of the ordinary for a...
Tune in tonight to "Ralston Reports" -- 6:30 in the North and 7:30 in the South on NBC affiliates -- to see Steve Wynn let loose: ----On Barack Obama: "I'll be damned if I'll have him lecture me.....I can't stand being put down by a president who's never created any jobs...I'm afraid of the president." ----On Mitt Romney: "He's "not the world's greatest campaigner, but he is absolutely going to be a fabulous president." ----On Shelley Berkley: "This woman has no right to be in the Unted States...
In a trenchant piece that posted late last night, BuzzFeed's McKay Coppins and John Stanton delve into the animus Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid feels for Mitt Romney. The reporters did a fine job of laying out Reid's lack of respect for Romney, but let me add my two cents to their provocative post: 1. The piece quotes someone as saying no one put Reid up to his public outbursts, inlcuding his repeated pressing of Romney on his taxes. That's not only true, but I understand some of the Obama...
