Good morning, everyone. As the parade of 2016 hopefuls arrive in Las Vegas to genuflect to Gondolier Numero Uno, it seems Sheldon Adelson has a new goal in the next presidential cycle:Support a winner. No more eyeing Newt for the megadonor. This time, it seems as if he is going for a governor he likes, maybe even Jeb Bush! One 2016 possibility, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, already is auditioning for Adelson’s favor with this letter, which was linked this morningby RJ capital bureau boss Steve...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: LG hopeful Lucy Flores. DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS FOR PRIMARY ELECTION: 61 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 78 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 225 Good morning, everyone. If you don’t follow March Madness – and if you don’t, why not? – you are unaware that my Michigan Wolverines are in the Sweet Sixteen. That means I am in a good mood – for now. The tournament has been fantastic so far, with...
Good morning, everyone. Someone ought to do a story about worker productivity during the NCAA tournament. Actually, that could be difficult because: Who would do the study? I’m sure too many people think that the discussion of UNLV as a Tier I school has to do with the Rebels making it back to the Final Four. I’m serious. Speaking of Tier I schools, Michigan, whose performance can be directly correlated to my mood, is through Round One. Be happy, dear Flashees. Speaking of advancing, the...
Good morning, everyone. As the RJ’s crack capital scribe Steve Tetreault reported, the battle over web gaming is about to enter a new chapter as Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-UT, are about to try to ban it. Again. Beyond all the expected implications that they are securing access to Sheldon Adelson’s deep pockets, the dynamics of this new move will be fascinating to watch. This comes amid increasing tensions between companies – you saw it here -- and ongoing efforts...
Good morning, everyone. Point of personal pride: On this day 13 years ago, my career was forever altered when a little program on a now-defunct station called Las Vegas ONE made its debut. First guest? Oscar Goodman! True story. “Face to Face” was on the cable station for nearly a decade before we went statewide (thanks, Jim Rogers!) to all of the NBC affiliates. It sill seems hard to believe it has been a baker’s dozen of years, but I still get a thrill every time the red light goes on, and I...
Good morning, everyone. Monday’s passing of Treat Cafferata reminded me of just how small the Nevada political world can be. Just look at the spokes that led to him: Son-in-law of a former congresswoman (Barbara Vucanovich). Husband of former state treasurer and district attorney (Patty Cafferata). Father of Reno City Council candidate (Elisa Cafferata). He was a very successful surgeon for decades in Reno. My condolences to his family. Too many funerals: The sendoff for Jackie Gaughan sounds...
Good morning, everyone, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Sorry this is a bit late, dear Flashees. Whirlwind weekend in DC started with Friday night red-eye, ended getting home late last night. Fantastic experience on ”Meet the Press”, with many memorable moments on and even off the air. My favorite of the latter was when I introduced myself to Sen. Dick Durbin, who was walking in to get makeup, and he glanced back, nodded and said, “Harry talks about you.” I bet he does. My apologies to premium...
Good morning, everyone. If it’s Sunday, it’s----me on “Meet the Press.” Yes, dear Flashees, you read that right. I’m as surprised as you are that they want to do an entire program on Sen. Dean Heller’s thoroughly inept operation, but so be it. Seriously, it’s quite an honor, and I just hope I don’t sound like Ralph Kramden when he went on TV. New countdown: Brian Sandoval is re-elected today. ICYMI,POLITICO piece that posted last night. What’s below: Southern confab, Reid in crosshairs and a...
Good morning, everyone. Seriously, what is wrong with these Republicans in the Assembly? Michele Fiore talked about bringing a gun to a Culinary picket line. Jim Wheeler talked about slavery. Pat Hickey awkwardly touted low minority turnout as a GOP boon. And now Ira Hansen thinks it’s funny to call those afflicted with awful, debilitating diseases “Harry Reid supporters.” I have as good a sense of humor as the next guy, but none of this is funny, and most of it is quite disturbing. But I...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Ex-Gov. Bob Miller on education and literacy. DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 89 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 237 Good morning, everyone. You may have heard of the big loss for Democrats in a Florida congressional district on Tuesday. Of course, the natural trajectory is for the winners to boast this is a bellwether and the losers to claim it has no global significance. But what’s inescapable...
