Good morning, everyone. I always smile when I wake up in themorning to find my picture in the “newspaper.” That gaming panel was enjoyable if not controversial. Five articulate, thoughtful, engaged people talking about major gaming issues. If you want to know why I continue to believe I have the best job in the world, I ask you: Where else in the world within 24 hours could you have a legislative leader celebrate low turnout among minorities and youngsters and a defeated congresswoman...
Former state Treasurer Bob Seale is mulling a bid for his former job and will meet with the governor next month, he said today. Seale told me Gov. Brian Sandoval had asked him to consider it. An accountant who was treasurer from 1995-1999 and subsequently was a one-term assemblyman, Seale has receded into private life and now works in an accounting firm with Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers. Seale had just retruned from a months-long trip across the country, including a visit to Civil War...
UPDATE: As a sign of the pressure he is facing, and in an attempt to hold onto his leadership post, Hickey just put out this statement about 4 PM: "I am sorry about my recent comments and regret I made them. It was not my intention to alienate any anyone, but I did misspeak, plain and simple and for that I apologize. I agree with Gov. Sandoval that Republicans must earn the trust and confidence of all Nevadans. I look forward to working with the Governor and my fellow Republicans in...
In the midst of the race for the Nevada Republican Party chairmanship, with the Establishment trying to oust incumbent Michael McDonald, some Tea Party types have posted one of the funniest and most embarrassing news releases I have ever read. I must emphasize: This is not a parody. In fact, you can see it here, and I have annotated below. McDonald expected to win re-election with ease. (Oh, really!) Michael J. McDonald has the needed support to win his re-election bid but the party...
National Journal's Hotline this week posted a piece on Gov. Brian Sandoval, joining many others in using the sunny meme that has stuck since shortly after he was elected in 2010. The piece is about the goal, elicited by the Las Vegas Sun's Anjeanette Damon, of Gov. Sunny's re-election campaign to get 50 percent of the Hispanic vote next year. Sandoval, by running to the right of Gov. Jim Gibbons three years ago, was crushed by a 2-to-1 margin by Rory Reid among Latinos. He has since done a lot...
Las Vegas Sun Publisher Brian Greenspun cannot sue the parent company of the Review-Journal until a deal is signed between his siblings and Stephens Media, a judge ruled today. Greenspun's attorney, Joe Alioto, says he is preparing an appeal to the Ninth Circuit to prevent the RJ from dissolving a decades-old Joint Operating Agreement. The order from Judge James Mahan is below. UPDATED: Alioto also told me that he believes that the RJ's attorneys were responsible for Leif Reid's request to...
In one of the more remarkable television interviews with a politician I have ever seen, ex-Rep. Shelley Berkley eviscerated her U.S. Senate campaign staff for bottling her up, not having a strategy and being too paranoid. "If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't let these people run my bathwater," Berkley told Hugh Jackson and Elizabeth Crum on KSNV's "The Agenda" on Wednesday afternoon. Berkley, who has been saying privately since she lost to Sen. Dean Heller in November that her campaign...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Clark County awakens shocked, shocked to find there is sex occurring in sex clubs.

It occurred to me during Ted Cruz’s ongoing “fakebuster” that Obamacare nationally is analogous to the margin tax locally. Obamacare is something that Democrats want to...
