UPDATED, 9:30 AM, 2/5/14: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is slightly important on this issue, has come out against this new AGA-sponsored coalition. This from spokeswoman Kristen Orthman: Senator Reid has long believed that a significant expansion of gambling is bad for Nevada and for the country. He continues to oppose any efforts, including those proposed by the AGA, that would bring slot machines and other games of chance into every computer and home in America. He also, however,...
You could sense when they campaigned together that Barack Obama and Harry Reid—as different as two politicians could be—had a genuine affection for one another. I still remember a moment during the 2012 presidential campaign when Obama, the great orator, joked about Reid’s limited skills in that department, and the Senate majority leader, sitting behind the president, grinned as broadly as I have ever seen him. The hug afterward was like many I saw—it appeared heartfelt, not perfunctory. I...
If you foolishly decide to fill out the "We intend to screw incumbents and people with triple-digit IQs" Nevada Republican Party pre-primary endorsement questionnaire, I have an answer sheet for you. No need to thank me. 1. Describe, in detail, your professional & educational experience. (may attach detailed resume) I have a lot of experience. My most important experience, though, is never having been to a Republican central committee meeting, so I have not been scared away from politics...

Nevada's teacher of the year in 2013 has decided to take on Michele Fiore, the controversial assemblywoman who is in NPRI's Hall of Fame (or something) but is a prime Assembly Democratic Caucus target in a split district. Jeff Hinton, who was given the award last year by Gov. Brian Sandoval, will take on Fiore in Assembly District 4, which is a slight plurality Democratic district (500 voters) and has 6,000 nonpartisan voters. Hinton also is a former Marine and NRA member who supports...
I can barely remember the days when Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn didn’t like each other. They were like two neighbors who would only come out of their houses – nice houses, mind you, on Las Vegas Boulevard South – to snarl at one another. I sensed a genuine dislike and disdain. Those days are long gone. The two most prominent names in the modern gaming industry clearly have a mutual respect; they even seem to enjoy each other. Wynn readily acknowledges Adelson has taught him a lot about Macau...
