Pete vs. Tulsi.
Not a fair fight.
And we have seen for the first time that he can counterpunch -- and hard.

"I thought you might have been high when you said it," @CoryBooker says of @JoeBiden saying he won't legalize pot.

And @PeteButtigieg, surely thrilled not to have been attacked, beautifully pivots to gay rights and his personal story.

This is a pretty strong answer by @KamalaHarris after refusing to take the bait to go after @PeteButtigieg.

A company owned by Jon Huntsman, Sr., gave $50,000 to the Nevada Republican Party, more than one third of what it raised this year as the GOP goes all-out to boost the underdog candidacy of lieutenant governor hopeful Sue Lowden. Huntsman previously gave to the Nevada Democratic Party because of his friendship with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, which I documented three years ago. The Hunstman family has been generous to Reid's campaign. The Huntsman company, Sun Valley Sotheby's...
UPDATED, 3:30 PM: Many will say that image is everything and that's what killed Vegas. Maybe it played a role, maybe not. But it's clear that the convention authority could not guarantee the venue during the accelerated timeline from the RNC -- they wanted to do in June -- and that not enough people wanted to pony up to give the RNC up-front money, as Dallas, for instance, has been willing to do. "There wasn't any real appetite to buy into it," one insider with intimate knowledge told me. "...
It depends on what the definition of "involvement" is. Ever since the Gaming Control Board issued its admonition to licensees, that has been the question. So Thursday afternoon, the state Gaming Commission will attempt -- maybe -- to clarify what that word means. Here is the key line from the GCB: "Accordingly, unless the federal law is changed, the Board does not believe investment or any other involvement in a medical marijuana facility or establishment by a person who has received a gaming...
A medical marijuana applicant has written a scathing letter to Clark County officials, asserting Chairman Steve Sisolak "denied" its application before it had a chance to make its case before the entire commission because he didn't like the location. The letter, posted below, elicited a formal response from Clark County Counsel Mary Miller (posted below the letter) and Sisolak, who has asserted the county's supremacy in this process, told me: "They asked me if I liked the location and I told...
UPDATE: Mark Hutchison raised $400,000 and spent a whopping $920,000 in 2014. He raised $900,000 last year. Wow. Here's his report. SECOND UPDATE: Sue Lowden raised $150,000, spent $250,000, must be waiting until after reporting deadline to put in money. Here's her report. And here's the Flores report. Not bad for her first foray into statewide politics. Lucy Flores can say thank you to some guy named Harry and national Latino groups, I'd guess. That should make her relatively competitive with...
UPDATED: Cegavske reported raising $100,000 and spending $50,000. She is way behind. State Treasurer Kate Marshall raised more than $200,000 this year for the secretary of state's race and now has just shy of $400,000 raised. SOS Ross Miller raised $370,000 for his re-election in 2010. State Sen. Barbara Cegavske, the GOP nominee to come, has yet to file. She reported only $78,000 last year. I will update with Cegavske's numbers when I get them.
The Republican attorneys general have one to assist Adam Laxalt, with a little help from lieutenant governor candidate Mark Hutchison's law firm. And the Democratic lieutenant governors have one and have already given $5,000 to Lucy Flores. Get ready for The Year of Outside Money.
The first mail piece is about education: "Mike Schneider is the leader our kids and schools need." The Clark County Commission has nothing to do with education. Minor point. This is the first in a series designed to help the ex-state senator beat Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager. I previously told you about this group. The piece is attached here.
Mary Beth Scow just destroyed John Bonaventura.
