Meet the new bosses, same as the old bosses. Donors, mostly from casinos and business interests, have spent about $6.6 million this election cycle on races for the Legislature, with two state senators, GOP Minority Leader Michael Roberson, and Democrat Justin Jones, running in arguably the most important race in the state, leading the way with more than $450,000 raised each. That’s according to a Ralston Reports analysis of 70 different campaign accounts since Jan. 1, 2013, including incumbents...
How badly to do some Republicans want Assemblyman Jim Wheeler out? Judging from the mailers hitting in his district, and funded by a PAC set up to defeat him, the answer is: Pretty badly. Calling an elected official a "local nut" and a "national embarrassment" ain't exactly subtle. The mailers come courtesy of the Nevada Republican Majority PAC, set up by Genoa resident James Hartman. Hartman was a longtime GOP official in Northern California who has always loved Nevada and recently moved here...

But rarely have I seen anything as mendacious as what was posted by Kathryn Jean Lopez at National Review Online’s “The Corner” Wednesday evening. First let me say that I am a great admirer of NRO writers and contributors, including Jonah Goldberg and Jim Geraghty. But this post by Lopez is simply a tendentious piece of garbage, which intentionally...
Good morning, everyone. Three down, six to go. The Culinary union announced early this morning that it has reached an agreement with the El Cortez a few days before a weekend strike deadline. A half-dozen downtown properties have no contract. Can they get them all done in time? More breaking news this morning: McCarran passenger traffic was up 1.7 percent in April over a year ago, the eighth straight month of increases. And the state reports gaming revenues are down .27 percent in...
The umbrella labor group that wants to elect ex-state Sen. Mike Schneider to Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager's seat sent out an alert Wednesday for a weekend phone bank. But Brager has raised three quarters of a million dollars and the Culinary is not helping the labor effort because it is preparing to go on strike. And an independent expenditure campaign has begun pounding Schneider (there is one helping him, too), with a new, brutal mail piece below. The alert:
