Yes, the Democratic nominee for governor is "None of These Candidates." The goofy Nevada ballot choice won with 30 percent of the vote to Bob Goodman's 25 percent. They each spent the same amount of money: None. Because the choice has no teeth, Goodman goes on to the general. So is this unprecedented? Not quite. It has happened four times in primaries. NOTC passed in 1975, and then won GOP primaries for Congress in 1976 and 1978, a secretary of state's primary in 1978 and then a Democratic...
It’s all over but for the voting. So to try – I fear in vain – to blunt the hyperbole and spin to come, here’s what to watch for once the results come in tonight: 1. Ignore all extrapolations for the general election. The primary electorate is a different animal; no matter how partisans try to claim victories or losses that are meaningful for November, they are spouting unscientific nonsense. Five months to go, so much to happen, many more voters to turn out. 2. Watch how many of the Republican...
Yes, it's nuts to predict in low-turnout primaries. But to do what I do for as long as I have....I'm nuts. So here are a few, with emphasis on GOP primaries that feature moneyed candidates vs. insurgents: ►Lieutenant governor: If Sue Lowden wins this race, it should be regarded as one of the greatest upsets in Nevada political history, low turnout or no. She has not written a very big check. Her campaign has been at times childish, at times unfathomable. Her ads have been singularly amateurish...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Predictions! Mine and the insiders 2. How the med pot winners were chosen -- details you will see nowhere else 3. Smartest/dumbest moves and coming campaign developments OUT ON A LIMB I have written many times – excuse alert! – how difficult it is to predict in low-turnout primaries. It’s crazy, in fact. But why turn down the opportunity to allow people to give me a hard time after Tuesday’s balloting? So below you will find my predictions with an...
Once, I almost got Bob Faiss to dish. After all my years of cajoling and needling, all those times I had tried to get him to tell stories out of school, to learn who he didn’t like or respect, I persuaded him to do something he had never done in my presence: Have a drink. As he sipped the Margarita at an eatery in his beloved Boulder City, Faiss started to loosen up. I sensed the dirt was coming. And then he did it. He reined himself in, regained his otherwordly discipline and natural...
Rarely has there been a process that so obviously flouted the Open Meeting Law as was the one Friday when Clark County commissioners approved 18 medical marijuana dispensaries. Through a series of rounds of voting on tally sheets, mostly unseen by the public, and without commissioners explaining their votes, the board selected the winners, many of whom have political connections. But there was no discussion of the merits of each appliant being chosen vis a vis the others, and commissioners...
