UPDATED: I have attached the full spreadsheet from NJ on Reid's voting record in the '80s. His pro-life positions helped bring him to the center, but on economic (hello, taxes), he was pretty liberal. UPDATED, 11 AM, SATURDAY: Late Friday night, Lowden put out a series of tweets in which she said she "misspoke" and meant to call Reid a "Reagan Democrat." Then she unloaded on her opponent, state Sen. Mark Hutchison. Here are the tweets: Sue Lowden @SueLowden13h Or why he defended a...
After blowback from progressives near and far, Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto says she will reconsider her brief on gay marriage. Amazing. Check it out. ATTORNEY GENERAL MASTO STATEMENT ON NEVADA’S SAME-SEX MARRIAGE CASE Las Vegas, NV – Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto released the following statement regarding Nevada’s same-sex marriage case: “A potentially significant case was decided by the Ninth Circuit on Tuesday of this week, the same day that a brief was...
This could put those Democratic elected jellyfish in a pickle. This weekend, as the state party convenes in Las Vegas, the state teachers union will try to get the Democrats to embrace a tax plan, a 2 percent margin tax, that its elected leaders have treated like it causes leprosy. This will be fun to watch. It could be as entertaining as...a GOP event. I bet the brave electeds will have a conniption. Here's what was sent to a select few today: If you know a teacher or have kids in school in...
Sheldon Adelson, who already is crusading to stop a federal green light for web poker, is escalating his effort. Andy Abboud, Adelson's chief lobbyist, told me Friday that Team Adelson is actively preparing to "block legalization state by state." "We are prepared to mount full campaigns in every state where a bill is introduced to legalize any form of online gaming," Abboud said. "We will also be doing education in all states to prevent the introduction of any bills." And, he added, "We are...
So stalwart pollster Glen Bolger has found the proposal for an appeals court has 55 percent support? Maybe. I have attached the poll memo here. I chatted with Bolger Thursday, and he was surprised by the result but also thinks it will hold if, as seems likely, there is no organized opposition. But might newspaper editorials hurt? On an arcane issue such as this, perhaps. But support in the rurals (61-36) and Clark (57-33) is robust with Washoe (41-46) surprisingly weak. Good news. It's long...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday he is "terribly disappointed" in Nevada's brief backing a constitutional gay marriage ban filed Wednesday with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. "I think that...we're in a new era and Nevada should become modern like the rest of the country," Reid told KSNV's Kelsey Thomas. When she followed up and asked if there should be a federal law supporting gay marriage, the majority leader replied: "The answer, of course, is yes, but that's not going to...
Chancellor Dan Klaich's memo is attached with his "unqualified recommendation" to the regents for Don Snyder over Carol Harter.
Nevada GOP sets up pre-primary endorsement process, appears designed to screw Establishment candidates
Designed to give the party's imprimatur to favored candidates (many of whom will have less chance of winning the general election) and sure to further estrange the Nevada GOP from its elected leaders, next month the faithful will have the opportunity to endorse candidates in the primary. The process outlined in a memo I have obtained indicates that the same folks who have insulted the RNC and been taken over by Ron Paul acolytes will now be able to choose their primary favorites, giving the...
