On Thursday, congressional contender Erin Bilbray sent out this pitch with the slug, "You wont (sic) believe this?" at the top: We know Speaker Boehner recently made a trip to Nevada to support my opponent, even he knows we are on track to beat Joe Heck. But he's not the only one who is worried about our campaign. This week, the Koch brothers, who have bankrolled some of the most right wing politicians and policy campaigns in recent memory, convened some of the richest right-wing...
This morning, Las Vegas Councilman Bob Beers, through Review-Journal columnist John L. Smith, asserted he would run against Senate Majority leader Harry Reid in 2016. My initial thoughts: 1. Laughter. 2. He won't run. (General axiom: Don't take seriously such pronouncments three years less three months from an election.) 3. Beers loves mischief and loves attention. 4. He'll never raise the money. 5. Among those who might run against Reid, the most likely are: Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki, Rep. Joe...
By the time the battle over the margin tax is over, a lot of people are going to make a lot of money that could have been better spent on education. Today, Faiss Foley Warren, the public relations firm hired by opponents sent out its first news release, which is worth annotating because it surely presages themes to come. Enjoy: COALITION FORMED TO DEFEAT THE MARGIN TAX INITIATIVE (Indeed it was, months ago) Las Vegas, NV --- A coalition has formed as the official campaign group to oppose...
Four years ago, Sharron Angle gave to Democrats the greatest gift they could have asked for in the campaign, assuring through her nomination that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would be re-elected. Now, Angle is about to prove that she is the gift that keeps on giving. Or so some opponents of voter ID would hope as Nevada, inevitably, becomes a focal point of the national, partisan battle over voter suppression laws. In the space of 24 hours, Angle announced her voter ID initiative and ex-...
And here it is.
Erin Bilbray, running in one of the two dozen or so most-watched districts in the country, has hired a new campaign manager. Bilbray, the Democrat challenging GOP Rep. Joe Heck, has retained Erica Prosser, who has experience with a DC firm, Mack Sumner, and has worked on Capitol Hill as well as for well-known Democratic pollster Celinda Lake. Prosser also worked for Annie's List, a Texas version of EMILY's List. Prosser takes over for Bradley Mayer, the Las Vegas-based campaign and field expert...
Unable to organize the Station Casino properties, the Culinary Union has sent letters to elected officials, held demonstrations and caused problems for the company in other jurisdictions. Now the union has opened a new front, using its formidable research department and web savvy to erect a site dedicated to casting doubts about the company's online poker portal. "Ultimate Sucker" is a play on the Station-sponsored site, "Ultimate Gaming." Apologies to Steinbeck, but wherever Station is, the...
National labor leaders tell Reid, Pelosi they are "bitterly disappointed" with Obamacare regulations
In a scathing letter to congressional leaders, the head of the Culinary's parent union and the national laborers' organization lambasted the administration's implementation of Obamacare, saying it "undermines fair market competition" and emphasized they are "bitterly disappointed." Las Vegas' own D. Taylor of UniteHERE and Terry O'Sullivan of LIUNA sent the letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi this week, part of an unrelenting campaign against the...
