I ran into Steve Wynn, Sheldon Adelson and Karl Rove the other night at SW Steakhouse. They generously offered to let me sit down and tape their conversation. That’s just the kind of guys they are. Here’s what transpired: Rove: “I just want to thank you guys again for all of the money you’ve given Crossroads GPS. We couldn’t have done it without you.” Adelson: “You’re welcome, Karl. But are we going to win or not?” Wynn: “Good question. Shelly. We’ve invested a lot with you, Karl, to get rid...
STATEWIDE UPDATE: The Democrats have just under a 41,000-vote statewide lead going into the last day of early voting. Democrats gained about 6,000 voters on the penultimate day of early voting in Clark County while Republicans won Thursday in Washoe County by about 200 votes. It appears the Democrats, who now lead in Clark by 61,000 voters, will have somewhere in the neighborhood of about a 40,000-voter lead -- perhaps slightly more -- in Nevada going into Election Day. If partisan voting...
Something happened today that made me very angry. Now I freely admit: I am irritable this time of year, what with the nattering partisans and obnoxious campaigns. And I’m not known for having the longest fuse on a good day. But nothing – nothing – gets me from serene to volcanic faster than attempts to make people feel as if an election might not be clean. And in an all-too-familiar pattern, national Republicans are casting doubts on the integrity of the election process here. And it’s not just...
In 2008, the Democrats took over the state Senate after some outrageous and despicable campaigns to oust Joe Heck and Bob Beers. Thanks to outside spending, mostly by the state Democratic Party, the Republicans fell to a couple of ciphers boosted by a relentless mail campaign featuring ridiculous allegations, especially against Heck, that would have embarrassed people in any other profession. But politics is one of those rare endeavors where bad behavior consistently is rewarded, just as bad...
Mark Mellman, who hit 2010 on the nose for Harry Reid, says President Obama is up 6 in Nevada, 50-44. His memo on the poll for the Democratic front group, Americans United for Change, is posted here. Key stat: Obama is winning Washoe, which would kill Romney's chances. He's up 11 in Clark, according to Mellman's poll. He's also crushing Romney among Hispanics by a 2-to-1 margin int he poll by Mellman, who is Rep. Shelley Berkley's pollster in the U.S. Senate race. Mellman: "With the president...
With two left in early/mail voting, the Democrats had a solid but not spectacular day (4,000 votes gained) and now lead in Clark County by about 55,000 votes. Meanwhile, the Republicans won Washoe by 300 votes out of 7,700 cast. That county will be close. An interesting phenomenon is there is no second-week surge as there usually is, which makes me wonder whether both parties have exhausted their enthusiastic voters in early voting. We will find out next week. The Clark early/mail numbers:...
