I have no doubt that part of the reason state Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson introduced a gun control bill (sans background checks) was to try to be able to blunt mail pieces next year that will be sent out against Republicans who opposed Democrat Justin Jones' bill. Well, 2014 came early as Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which is pushing the Jones bill and started an ad to push Gov. Brian Sandoval, has a full-blown field operation now in Roberson's district. And it inlcudes just the...
The pending agreement between Warren Buffett and Nevada's power monoply specifically states that the passage or failure of SB 123, its controversial coal-and-regulation-disappearing bill, has no impact on the deal. That's according to an SEC document filed this week and posted here, which states in part (see ppg. 61-62) that a litany of occurrences cannot have an adverse effect on the deal, including: any adoption, implementation, promulgation, repeal, modification, reinterpretation or proposal...
I doubt it will make much difference, beyond generating a lot of calls to Gov. Brian Sandoval's office, but here it is:
UPDATED WITH HARRY REID QUOTE: "I've spoken to Warren Buffett, Michael Yackira and Phil Satre and it is not often I have been as enthused about a deal as I am now. I am elated.

Warren Buffett is coming to Nevada in a huge way. The Berkshire Hathaway boss, through his energy subsidiary (MidAmerican), is acquring the...
UPDATE III: On May 19, in a letter to the FEC, Sen. John Ensign's campaign acknowledged unreported contributions to his campaign from...his parents. But, amazingly enough, the letter also takes a shot at his former treasurer and lover, Cindy Hampton, for not "previously reporting" what the senator would later claim were "gifts." If only she had known..... The letter is attached here. UPDATE II: In case you have forgotten what the original explanation/lie was for the obvious severance/payoff/...
Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins is term-limited, but he's having a birthday, so he's putting the arm on folks for his PAC (P.S. -- No need for campaign finance transparency law that make sense in Nevada). My favorite part for the future candidate for lieutenant governor (uh huh): Help Commissioner Collins throw the best fundraiser in the state, to fend off his foes and continue the fight for the hard working people of Nevada by making the call to sponsor this event today. Oh? Really...
