Sheldon Adelson, the Republican Party’s main money man, said today the nomination (and likely confiirmation) of former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel to be defense secretary is “shameful” because of his "associations" and because he is “anti-Semitic.” When I asked Las Vegas Sands Chairman Adelson, whom I had an impromptu chat with at his office this afternoon before lunching with a friend of his, how upset he was that the Hagel nomination is moving forward, he replied with one word: “Very.” He then...
After his speech to the Legislature this week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid met briefly with reporters and made some interesting comments. Some of them have been reported, but the full extent of his remarks are below in a transcript I have obtained and lightly edited. My favorites: ----Classic Reid in exchange over the possibility Gov. Brian Sandoval may run against him: Reporter: Do you think Governor Sandoval is going to run against you 2016? Senator Harry Reid: Oh, I don’t know. You...
Here's the video version of this.
Now that lawmakers have passed a web poker bill faster than pocket Aces can get cracked, they can move just as quickly to tax fast food and ban smokers from working in hospitals. Surely, I jest. But when lawmakers work as quickly as they did Thursday – both houses passed the measure within an hour – and the governor immediately signs the bill, should anyone stop to ponder: What’s the big rush? I could wonder why they can't even muster a serious public discussion of the state's antiquated tax...
As prepared for delivery: It is a pleasure to return to Carson City and an honor to speak with you. It has been my good fortune to address the Nevada Legislature during 15 joint sessions. Each occasion has been an opportunity to reflect on the unique nature and responsibilities of our state and our state legislature. Serving in the legislature is a blessing, but it can also be a burden. Let me tell you why. The laws of the land are written by the men and women in this chamber – not by...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will tell Nevada legislators in about 90 minutes to pass same-day registration, and he will also oppose photo ID laws, a clear shot at Secretary of State Ross Miller's proposal before lawmakers for a so-called visual verification bill, a source familiar with his speech said. Same-day registration could easily pass the Democratically controlled Legislature. But Reid's position on photo ID could kill a Miller bill already on life support. The majority leader...
When Neena Laxalt saw the NPR article forwarded this morning by a cousin, she was stunned. And so, she says, was the rest of the family to learn that her nephew, Adam Laxalt, was the son of Pete Domenici, the ex-New Mexico senator. “My mom went to her grave (in 2004) not knowing,” Laxalt, a lobbyist in Carson City, told me in the Legislative Building. “I was shocked.” Neena Laxalt and Michelle Laxalt are not close – the latter left Nevada when Paul Laxalt defeated Harry Reid for the U.S. Senate...
