Nearly three quarters of a century ago, the first bomb exploded in the desert a short drive from Las Vegas, heralding hundreds of more, complete with mushroom clouds and manifest toxicity for those downwind before the tests went underground. A mere quarter-century ago, in the soon-to-be-dubbed Screw Nevada Bill, Congress designated Nevada as the lone site to be studied for a nuclear waste repository, not far from where all those detonations had taken place. And from that moment forward, Nevada...
Dale Erquiaga left Nevada after being an adviser to the Clark County School District. But, like many before, he missed the place. Now he's got an even bigger education job. As I told you weeks ago, his relationship with Gov. Brian Sandoval, whom he also advised, made him the odds-on favorite to be state superintendent. And it became official today as Erquiaga returns to replace the mercurial James Guthrie, who went off the Team Sandoval reservation before being told he was no longer welcome....
Earlier today, The Washington Post’s liberal blogger, Greg Sargent, seemed quite excited by Rep. Joe Heck’s pro-immigration reform remarks at a SXSW panel in Las Vegas. But I am one of those Sargent describes who “will probably dismiss the significance of this, since Heck represents a district that went for Obama in 2012.” Yes, and for other reasons, too, including: He's said it before. And to The Washington Post! But there's more: ►Sargent is right that this is less interesting because Heck is...
Adam Laxalt, the grandson of the former senator and whose mother recently revealed is the son of ex-Sen. Pete Domenici, has been approached about running for attorney general. "A number of different people have approached me to encourage me to run (or at least look at the race) but that is all," Laxalt, whose mother is Paul Laxalt's daughter, Michelle, told me via email. " I must say that running for attorney general was definitely not on my radar when this occurred. With a new baby and a...
Harry Reid doesn’t care. He doesn’t care if people erupt because of his incendiary effusions. He doesn’t care if the media like him. He doesn’t care if people think he’s lost it. In one day (one day!) of interviews in Southern Nevada last week, Reid once again displayed how his lack of a self-editing mechanism implanted in most pols early on results in him making news where others similarly situated would have stuck to bland talking points and rhetorical mush. Love him or hate him, Reid is like...
UPDATE: Sen. Tim Scott, the GOP senator from South Carolina who happens to be African-American, has responded to Reid's remarks that he hopes Republicans are not opposing the president because "he's African-American." To wit: “I am sincerely disappointed by continued attempts to divide the American people by playing to the lowest common denominator. Instead of engaging in serious debate about the failed policies of this administration – from the ever-increasing burdens created by the national...
I had an extensive interview Thursday with Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers for a freelance piece I am working on and he told me he will not be on the ballot in 2014. After floating his name – and having it floated – for lieutenant governor, Beers told me the Republicans “are going to be fine without my running.” Beers said he is “having a lot of fun” at City Hall (you can tell he is), but that he considered the lieutenant governor’s race as a “call to duty” because of the possibility Gov....
It's bad enough for politicians having to deal with animal activists. But what happens when you placate them but infuriate representatives of a key demographic? Trouble, that's what. So a couple of days after Clark County commissioners said no to certain events at Mexican rodeos, Chris Giunchigliani says she will revisit the issue of permitting because of a huge backlash after Tuesday's vote. That included calls from Hispanic lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Mo Denis, who said they...
As I have previously reported in detail, Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz made some startling claims during a hearing before the Senate Energy Committee, saying the state essentially had signed off on waste shipments. No one has yet produced the memos he talked about, as I told you. I have been rebuffed by the DOE, which has declined to comment on whether the memos exist after Moniz said they did in an open hearing. This could be a big story: Either a Cabinet secretary dissembled or the state...
