UPDATE, 9/30: Hardy told me he plans to file with the Federal Election Commission next week to start raising money for the the congressional race. But he still reserves the right not to run if he can't get enough in the bank by January. Hardy told at least one lobbyist Monday that he is running. Until filing closes in March, I believe nothing..... ------- Hardy told lobbyist Cresent Hardy, the assistant minority floor leader, is considering a bid against Rep. Steven Horsford. "I'm just looking...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: NCL's Kyle Davis on the legislative scorecard. DAYS UNTIL FILING FOR OFFICE OPENS IN 2014: 154 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 253 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 400 Good morning, everyone. Others, I am sure, feel empty today knowing that one of the greatest shows on TV has ended. If you have not seen “Breaking Bad,” get the DVDs or get on Netflix.

Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Secret margin tax meetings revealed 2. The Weekly insiders on Pat Hickey’s future (some very strong words), McDonald’s victory, Mulroy for governor and Obamacare in 2014 campaigns 3. Updated state of the races: Ron Knecht is back! And other additions/subtractions.... This week's questions for the insiders: 1. Will Pat Hickey survive? 2. Does it really matter who the GOP chair is? 3. Should Pat Mulroy run for governor? 4. Do you think Obamacare will...
About a month after the 2012 election, ex-state GOP Chairwoman Sue Lowden hosted a meeting in Laughlin to talk about fixing the Ron Paul-dominated Clark County Republican Party. The current state chairman, Michael McDonald, was there to express support and to assure people that the state party was moving forward, that he had mended fences with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, according to one attendee who remembers the confab very well. The RNC, along with the Mitt Romney...
Pat Hickey is the very definition of an avuncular fellow, but his GOP masters are treating him like the crazy uncle who must be locked in the basement. All because he said on the radio what they say in the back rooms. This classic Kinsley gaffe, seeming to celebrate the low turnout of minorities and young people in off years that benefits Republicans, has roiled the political world here, with Democrats using their highest octane gas not to immolate Hickey but scorch the GOP brand, and...
At his zenith, Harvey Whittemore was loud, bombastic, occasionally obnoxious. He had power, through his clients, and he wielded it in Carson City for them. And not very quietly. Combining a quicksilver intellect and a nonpareil work ethic, Whittemore became very wealthy, transformed himself into a developer and envisioned a bedroom community for Las Vegas called Coyote Springs. And then it all fell apart. The recession, the fracturing of his business relationships and then…the indictment and...
UPDATE: Chairman McDonald, responding to the missive I clearly identified as a draft with his name, put out a statement that indicated I said he sent this to the central committee. I did not say that, as any plain reading of my post would reveal. But he may have sent it if I hadn't mocked it -- we will never know. And it came straight from GOP HQ, where a mole made sure I'd see it. This is very sad, especially because the chairman knows this is the very pitch he has been making to voters in...
