Nevada Democrats better watch out or someone might start to make fun of them. It's bad enough that "None of the Above" won the gubernatorial primary. It's worse that the second-place finisher and de facto nominee Bob Goodman celebrated by going to....the Philippines. And now, two of the other also-rans have let the secretary of state's office know that Goodman plans to withdraw and not run against Gov. Brian Sandoval. Yes, I am serious. According to emails I have obtained, Stephen Frey, whose...
The wave of outside spending in Nevada's attorney general's race began last year when the State Government Leadership Foundation began an effort to tarnish Secretary of State Ross Miller. The group has set up a website and ran hundreds of thousands of dollars in ads this year. Now, the other side has signaled it plans to invest to help Miller -- or perhaps hurt his GOP foe, Adam Laxalt. The Democratic Attorneys General Association, which has set up similar organizations in other states,...
Gov. Brian Sandoval leads Democrat Bob Goodman by 27 percentage points, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey. Hey, it's Rasmussen, which notoriously tilts Republican, so maybe Goodman actually is closer, and, and, and.... Oh, nevermind. Bob Goodman, by the way, remains in Asia.

Sandoval: 69/25 Harry Reid: 36/59 Dean Heller: 49/42 And on approval/disapproval: President Obama: 44/53 Sandoval: 64/28 The Heller number really...
In the race for governor-in-waiting, Lucy Flores is going up first, with an ad running during World Cup games, including twice during US-Germany later this week. The ad uses the most famous player in the world and the frenzy over the sport, especially among Hispanics, to begin the process of energizing Latinos behind the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor. The goal (ahem) obviously is to contrast Flores' life story with her GOP foe, Mark Hutchison, who already is being portrayed by the...
“Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.” Jim Rogers said that a lot. He thought much of what he heard was nonsense. He had no patience for it. Come to think of it, he had no patience for…..anything. Rogers, the media kingpin and education advocate who died last week, invited clichés: Force of nature. Man of action. Eccentric rich guy. But the truth is Rogers was as sui generis as almost anyone I have known: A Tasmanian devil with ADD and OCD who didn’t care who got in his way in pursuit of his often-...
Similar bill was vetoed by Gov. Brian Sandoval last session. Wonder which base gets more fired up.... Attached here.
