TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: More on med pot. DAYS UNTIL FILING FOR OFFICE OPENS IN 2014: 52 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 151 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 298 Good morning, everyone. I am far from the only one in the media who has chuckled after Chris Christie’s nearly two-hour news conference Thursday about what it would be like if a Nevada governor had ever done so. Most...
Good morning, everyone. To be honest, medical marijuana is not high on my priority list of issues. But with Henderson’s moratorium this week, joining other municipalities, I am getting more and more incensed with how this issue has progressed. Dear Flashees, about a decade and a half ago Nevadans approved the sale of medical marijuana, but legislative dithering and legal impediments have subverted the public’s will. It was approved by a 2-to-1 margin! I wondered just how frustrated dispensary...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL FILING FOR OFFICE OPENS IN 2014: 54 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 153 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 300 Good morning, everyone. I am way behind on this, and not sure how many of you are up to speed, but I sampled “Alpha House” last night, the Amazon series about four Republican senators living together in DC. It’s a comedy, and I thought parts of the first two...
Good morning, everyone. Sen. Dean Heller was on “The Daily Rundown” on MSNBC early this morning to talk about his bill (with Sen. Jack Reed) to extend unemployment insurance benefits for three months at a cost of $6.5 billion. Heller claimed to be “optimistic” he can get the votes and used his standard “No Labels” message about “Democrats and Republicans coming together.” But then he added, bizarrely, “even if we get 58 or 59 votes, this is not the end of this discussion.” I’m sure that will...
Good morning, everyone. And Happy New Year. I would love to tell you how happy I am to be back, how much I have missed all of you and how eager I am to report again on the Groundhog Day world of Nevada politics. Yes, I would love to. But here I am, and there you are, and I’m sure I will feel the excitement soon. I returned to find greetings from many candidates – really, nothing says “Happy Holidays” like a breathless pitch for money at year’s end. Heartwarming indeed. The best news about the...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL FILING FOR OFFICE OPENS IN 2014: 73 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 172 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 319 Good morning, everyone. This will be the last Morning Flash for awhile. I’d like to say it’s been a great year in Nevada politics, but that would mean erasing the memory of the 2013 Legislature, where much was promised and little delivered. That doesn’t mean there haven’...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Former UNLV President Carol Harter. DAYS UNTIL FILING FOR OFFICE OPENS IN 2014: 74 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 173 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 320 Good morning, everyone. It was fascinating to read and then watch the reaction late Wednesday to this piece by former Reuters DC scribe Sam Youngman. The ultra-personal tale of falling in love and out of love with the Beltway as a journalist was...
