If you think I’m good at predicting election outcomes, I’m just as prescient when it comes to what certain Nevada luminaries (some anthropomorphism required) will give thanks for over their turkeys on Thursday: ►Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: That he didn’t need Nevada’s Senate seat to retain his scepter. Mitt Romney’s invisible tax returns. His beautiful friendship of 25 years with Dean Heller. ►Sen. Dean Heller: The House Ethics Committee. The House Ethics Committee. The House Ethics...
Nevada's polling oddities, including overestimating GOP support and a "newspaper's" horrible record with surveys, is explored in a post for Latino Decisions by UNLV Professor David Damore. Damore found that polling here, as I have pointed out, has underestimated Democratic strength in surveys for the last three cycles, and he singles out Mason-Dixon, once used by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, and Survey USA, now used by the "newspaper," as prime evidence of the phenomenon. Damore also explored...
This morning, I asked subscribers to Flash (you can sign up on the site) this trivia question: During the 1993 Legislature, how many lawmakers were there who would later run for statewide office and who are they? Lots of folks took a stab at it, but here is the correct answer: 10 (11 if you count one who started to run but never filed) Here they are: State Sen. Tom Hickey -- Secretary of state, 1994 State Sen. Sue Lowden--U.S. Senate, 2010 State Sen. Joe Neal -- Governor, 2002 State Sen. Ray...
Tonight: A very personal "Ralston Reports" as I talk about my experience with adoption and we talk to experts and others who have adopted. Here's a link to the state adoption site, with information and pictures of some children awaiting adoption.
It might be a stretch to call it the kickoff of Gov. Brian Sandoval's re-election campaign. But not much of a stretch. And what better place to begin a bid for a second term than a place called Encore, the Strip casino where 15 prominent members of the Hispanic community gathered Friday afternoon to pay tribute (and a few bucks) to the Latino governor. What's especially noteworthy about this group: Most did not support Sandoval in 2010 in his first race for governor against then-Clark County...
By a 3-to-1 margin, Ralston Reports site readers say Gov. Brian Sandoval will expand Medicaid coverage as allowed under Obama care. One hundred and twenty-seven people voted in last week's poll. There's a new poll up, as well as new barometers for this week.
And we will be talking to him about the report, attached here, on deadly force and reforms proposed by the Department of Justice.
Former Speaker Pro Tem Debbie Smith is about to assume even more power in the upper house, putting her in the decision-making room with her old pal and fellow workaholic, Speaker-to-Be Marilyn Kirkpatrick. Smith has been named second-in-command to Majority Leader Mo Denis, but also chairwoman of the Senate Finance Committee. I always said that if Bill Raggio were ever forced to give up one of his titles -- majority leader or finance boss -- he always would have chosen to remain head of the most...
So what does a lobbyist or business say when the minority leader of a house comes asking for money, not for his caucus, but for two folks who ran to be members but lost? Yes, I suppose. State Sen. Michael Roberson raised more money, through PACs and through their campaign accounts, for those five critical state Senate races than has ever been raised before. When all is said and done, my guess is the total will be close to $2.5 million, maybe even $3 million. But Steve Kirk, who lost to Joyce...
The Service Employees International Union has joined a chorus of voices, including many in the medical community, urging Gov. Brian Sandoval to expand Medicaid under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The governor continues to say he will make a decision soon, but the union has sent 300 signed postcards -- release is attached here -- to try to pressure Sandoval. Not sure he will listen to SEIU, but it can't hurt. This comes on the heels of a medical consortium pushing him and a day...
