The event took place on Norman Rockwell Lane but the tableau would have been unrecognizable for the painter: An African-American tea partier with a predominantly Hispanic staff announcing at a Mexican restaurant with a rural cowboy at his side in a place called Las Vegas. Rockwell’s portraits of Americana conjured no one like Niger Innis, whose picture would be more at home in The American Spectator than the Saturday Evening Post. But there he was in far northwest Las Vegas on Wednesday on a...
Niger Innis, the former national spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, officially declared for Congress today against Rep. Steven Horsford. And a FEC complaint was filed against him by a concerned citizen, who also happened to be the plaintiff in the eminent domain looniness in North Las Vegas. I find FEC complaints filed to be timed with someone's announcement like annoying, regularly recurring rashes: They are irritating, but they must be dealt with. Gregory Smith filed the complaint...
Speaker John Boehner is coming to raise money for Rep. Joe Heck on Friday in Las Vegas. He will have a welcoming committee:
As the teachers union prepares for a Sisyphean fight to pass a new tax for education, the rest of organized labor is poised to roll the boulder back over them. Sources confirm that the AFL-CIO, especially the 18 building trades affiliates, have decided not to support the tax it once enthusiastically backed. And Gail Tuzzolo, the longtime right-hand woman of AFL-CIO boss Danny Thompson, has become a paid consultant to the coalition trying to defeat The Education Initiative. “It’s up in the air...
News that Gov. Brian Sandoval raised $3 million in six months not only cements his re-election but is an unprecedented number for an off-year in Nevada. And don't forget: The governor raised about $1.3 million in the first two years of his tenure (he spent about half of that), so he's at $4.3 million raised. (I'm told he has about $3.1 million on hand, which is about $3.1 million more than anyone who will run against him.) In a comparable filing in 2010, candidate Sandoval raised $900,000. It's...
Secretary of State Ross Miller has raised an eye-popping $880,000 for his bid for attorney general, I've confirmed. That's even more than lieutenant governor hopeful Mark Hutchison, who will report north of $850,000. So Miller and Hutchison surely will be Nos. 2 and 3 behind Gov. Brian Sandoval, who I'd say will be a seven-figure man. Miller will face Adam Laxalt, who is the grandon of ex-Sen. Paul Laxalt and the son of ex-Sen. Pete Domenici and Michelle Laxalt, the senator's daughter, who were...
So maybe lieutenant governor IS the most important office in the state? State Sen. Mark Hutchison will report more than $850,000 raised for the job usually seen as, to coin a phrase, a bucket of warm spit, sources confirm. That is sure to be much, much more than what ex-state GOP Chairwoman Sue Lowden or Assemblywoman Lucy Flores reports. Perspective: Before he ran for re-election in 2010, Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki reported raising $139,000. It's good to be anointed by a governor protecting his...
In a preview of the campaign donnybrooks to come, state Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson has put up unprecedented fundraising numbers, and state Sen. Justin Jones has served notice he is taking the fight for his seat -- and control of the upper house -- very seriously. Here's what sources tell me: ►Roberson will report having raised $310,000 in 2013, a record-setting amount indicating he is taking both his primary (Carl Bunce) and potential general election (Teresa Lowry) challengers...
Gov. Brian Sandoval was in a hotel room in Southern California when the call came. He was about to go to his son’s basketball game as the phone rang on Dec. 30. On the other end of the line was Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “Governor, as you know we’ve been looking at this process (for selecting drone sites.),” Sandoval recalled Foxx saying. “We’ve come down to six. We were very impressed (with Nevada’s application), and we’ve chosen Nevada as one of the sites.” Sandoval thanked the...
