The state Republican Party has no money or respect, but it overflows with chutzpah. How else to explain Chairman Michael McDonald's remarkable attempt to raise money through a golf tournament next week asking for up to $10,000 in sponsorships and touting a gushing, airbrushed bio of himself? The Inaugural Chairman's Cup Golf Tournament looks like a parody, but it's real. Why? "THE CHAIRMAN NEEDS YOUR HELP!" Does he ever! And how clever is this: "President Obama has played more than 160 rounds...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's leadership PAC gave $5,000 to lieutenant governor's hopeful Lucy Flores last month, trying to boost her chances in the race to keep Gov. Brian Sandoval from running against him in 2016. The Searchlight Leadership Fund, which was boosted by about $50,000 from health care PACs, also gave $5,000 to Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager, who is being challenged in a Democratic primary by ex-state Sen. Mike Schneider, who is backed by labor and some progressives...
Good morning, everyone. Beyond the surreality of Harry Reid at a Review-Journal event (none of the higher-ups wore Sharron Angle t-shirts), the strangest moment came not when the Senate majority leader presented his “domestic terrorists” line. That came after RJ columnist Steve Sebelius asked if the senator’s gushing praise for Gov. Brian Sandoval was the reason the Democrats don’t have a candidate for governor. Suddenly, a man stood up, holding up his literature and asserting he is indeed a...
Good morning, everyone. I hate to say it, but I finally watched the season opener of “Mad Men” last night, and I have to ask: What happened to that series? I remember when the dialogue crackled, when Don Draper was a misanthropic jerk, when Roger Sterling was interesting. Few series have been as good as this one was and then became so – the biggest insult I can give – boring. I feel like I should see the series through to the end, but it will not be easy. Maybe I should just stick to “Game of...
Good morning, everyone. Two former speakers, a former Ways and means chairman and a former legislator/AG/governor/senator in front of the establishment run by the longest-serving speaker in history? That’s a keeper. Right in front of Dini’s Lucky Club, where I had a nice chat with Yerington Mayor George Dini, right beforehis father’s funeral. I thought of Mr. Speaker a lot Tuesday, including as drove the easy 75-minute drive from Reno to Yerington, thinking of how much of the road had been...
Good morning, everyone. Writing this on the plane up North to attend Joe Dini’s funeral in Yerington. Sad day for many, and I bet the high school gym in the small city will be packed with travelers from across the state. On my sparsely populated flight: Rep. Steven Horsford and AG hopeful Adam Laxalt. Just throwing together a quick Morning Flash because of time constraints, dear Flashees. ICYMI, here’s my hit last night on “All in With Chris Hayes” on MSNBC, talking about the Bundy Ranch. What...

DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS FOR PRIMARY ELECTION: 43 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 60 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 209 Good morning, everyone. It’s bad (and scary) enough that militia types are headed here to defend Cliven Bundy. We showed some of the videos being posted too YouTube on “Ralston Reports” last night (link...
Good morning, everyone. It was nice to have my parents in town after a week in which I was called all manner of names on Twitter and in email missives for my coverage of the Bundy Ranch mess. Apparently I am a “tool” and a “troll,” which is no mean feat, not to mention a “fascist” and freedom-hater and so on. I still can’t get over how Bundy was deified by some folks, no matter how botched the impoundment was by a BLM that let him essentially be an outlaw for decades. I still can’t get over ...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We're doing something on Cliven Bundy. DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS FOR PRIMARY ELECTION: 44 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 61 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 208 Good morning, everyone. I acknowledge that for a lifetime urbanite, it’s difficult for me to relate to all of the fuss over Cliven Bundy’s attempt to pull Nevada back to the days of the Wild Wild West (the time, not the great TV show...
Good morning, everyone. Fasten your seat belts, dear Flashees: This incipient gaming war is going to be a bumpy ride. First, I getthe now-national story of ex-Rep. Mary Bono selling herself to both sides in the battle over online gaming. Then, I get a confidential proposal to Caesars from a huge lobbying firm now working for Sheldon Adelson. This is going to be fun – if you are not a debt-laden gaming company, that is. The consultants on both sides, though, are going to make a fortune. Adelson...
