Trying to capitalize on the intense interest in the UNLV-Nevada football game Saturday, lieutenant governor's hopeful Mark Hutchison is inviting people to "party" with him, Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen. Dean Heller. I have questions: 1. I don't think any of these guys drink. What will they be serving? Lemonade? 2. What colors will they be wearing? Rooting for which team, gentlemen? 3. Will there be no taxes on the drinks? If we have no budget, will we have to pay? Will Hutchison have a med pot...
I asked Democratic ccongressional candidate Erin Bilbray on "Ralston Reports" Wednesday about a fundraising email that Rep. Joe Heck sent out right after she announced almost four months ago. She declined to back away from her characterization of the pitch, made on KNPR in July, that the pitch "was a very personal attack email that he used for his fundraising efforts. And we’re talking about a campaign that’s 16 months out. I think that kind of partisan anger is really turning people off. I...
He already has a primary with Carl Bunce, the Ron Paulite coming at him from the right. Now state Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson has a general election foe, too (assuming he gets there). Teresa Lowry, the longtime prosecutor, has decided to run for that southeast Las Vegas Valley district. I think she has a lot of potential as a candidate, with an impressive history of putting execrable criminals behind bars. But the political graveyard is littered with legislative candidates who...
The interview barely lasted a half-hour before Charlie Zobell, the Las Vegas Review-Journal's city editor, offered me the job covering the night police beat. “Wow,” I thought to myself, “I am either the greatest thing since sliced bread or they are desperate to find someone, anyone to take this job.” When I walked into the newsroom a couple of weeks later, I knew the answer. “So you’re the sucker they finally found,” one of my new colleagues snickered. That was 29 years ago today. I arrived as...
So who do you get to support you if you are not the anointed one? That's the question for lieutenant governor's hopeful Sue Lowden, who is running against state Sen. Mark Hutchison, Gov. Brian Sandoval's choice to be his wing man. The answer: Former legislative colleagues, a few governor-defying electeds, old pals and...Siegfried and Roy. Do they have a special trick to make anointments disappear? It's Old Vegas vs. everyone else? Sort of. Ex-state Sen. Mark James, a former ally of Lowden's in...
A pro-immigration reform group has poll results that indicate Reps. Joe Heck and Mark Amodei could benefit from backing a plan. That may not be surprising -- it's less so for Amodei in a heavily GOP district . But the crosstabs show wide support for a comprehensive approach. With all the usual caveats for an autodial poll -- and the samples actually skew slightly Republican -- Heck's favorable/unfavorable is not good: 41-45. This was taken, though, right at the height of anger over the...
After County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak got counsel Mary-Anne Miller to bolster his allegations about an arbitration award, the police union got a contrary view co-written by Miller's former boss, David Roger. Both opinions are posted here. UPDATE: Yes, Kathy Collins, who co-wrote the opinion with the ex-DA, is married to union boss Chris Collins.
Should Steve Sisolak have accused the sheriff of working with the union to fix the arbitration? Primary tabs View Edit Outline Results(active tab) Votes No 62% (49 votes) Yes 37% (29 votes) Total votes: 78
No wonder the state Republican Party can't afford a political director anymore: Federal Election Commission records show the GOP has $8,590 on hand. (The state account won't be reported until next year thanks to Nevada's lax disclosure laws.) The Democratic Party's federal account, as I informed premium subscribers Sunday, has has not done much either, but at least has $68,000 on hand. The difference: All the Democrats have to do is get Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to snap his fingers, and...
LEAVE YOURS IN THE COMMENTS. MINE: Gov. Brian Sandoval fakes his sunny smile in Israel with Tom Letizia, who is running the campaign for Sue Lowden against Sandoval's anointed choice for lieutenant governor, Mark Hutchison. Immediately after the photo, Sandoval turned to Letizia and said, "You are dead to me."
