State Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson has a message for his newly minted primary foe, Carl Bunce: I'll have all the money. It's nothing Bunce, the head of Ron Paul's Nevada organization, didn't know. But the statement Roberson is making with the fundraiser invite below is inescapable. He has every major business interest, including a mining lobbyist or two. on the list. Mining? The industry he tried to tax? No permanent friends, no permanent enemies. (I still think mining will try to...
Lost in the Sandoval administration dithering and stiff-arming and the Democrats’ hyperventilating and frothing is the truth about what’s really causing the deficiencies at the Rawson-Neal psychiatric facility: It’s the money, stupid. Mostly, that is. As Gov. Brian Sandoval completes his evolution next week from “don’t worry, everyone at Rawson-Neal is happy” to “I’m begging you for $4 million to save the place,” it’s worth pointing out just how decimated the state’s mental health budget has...
A few days after her supporters successfully pushed a ridiculous poll into the media, ex-GOP Chairwoman Sue Lowden says she may run for lieutenant governor. Yes, we already knew that. Pretty obvious choreography, too: Have pals do robopoll, show I am in lead (because I have name ID), then announce I'm exploring the race. In a news release today Lowden touched all the bases, including some self-deprecation she could have used three years ago, when she was anointed to defeat Senate Majority...
Sometimes "Ralston Reports" viewers make me laugh; sometimes they make me cry. "For you to sit there and entertain the idea of gay marriage, I've lost all respect for you. I thought you were an upbeat person that had common sense and morals and ethics and principles...That shouldn't even be a topic on your show. I'd never even entertain that. That would be like, you know, media suicide or something. Anyways, have a great day." Listen to the attached for the full 1:30 rant.. Look upon these...
Citizen Outreach, run by two past supporters of Sue Lowden, recently commissioned a ridiculous "poll" for lietuenant governor, which only the "newspaper" took seriously. The group put out a news reelase after the "poll" came back with the obvious when comparing the former GOP chair, state senator and Senate candidate to Las Vegas Councilman Bob Beers and state Sen. Mark Hutchison: Lowden has the most name recognition. Shocker. The outreaching citizens, Chuck Muth and Dan Burdish, actually put a...
I spoke too soon. I pointed out today on Twitter that ex-2010 Senate disaster Sharron Angle had terminated her campaign committee, suggesting a mournful valedictory was in order. But no. On her website, the woman who once told Harry Reid to "man up" wants your opinion. She's taking a poll on what she should do next: ►In 2016 run against Harry Reid ►In 2014 run for Congress (1/4 NV seats) ►In 2014 run for NV Lt. Governor ►In 2014 run for NV Secretary of State ►In 2014 run for NV Controller ►In...
We already knew that the state's power monopoly was in thrall to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who made the utility give up on coal and was the shadow sponsor of a juicy legislative bill. But if the junior senator's latest campaign contribution disclosure is any indication, Dean Heller is just as NV Energy-friendly now as the majority leader. If friendship can be bought, that is. The utility bundled just under $9,000 to Heller through employees at the company -- about one-seventh of the...
