Cresent Hardy says he isn't a "slick" politician. And he seems intent on proving that. First, video surfaced, aired on "Ralston Reports" on Tuesday, that had the assemblyman running for Congress talking about minority and women voters and the 47 percent. A Utah newspaper had first reported the comments. Hardy later told the Associated Press that he wasn't "slick or polished," which is self-evident. But there's more. In another part of the meeting (now posted by state Democrats) in Mesquite...
Group trying to get ex-first lady Dawn Gibbons to run against Harry Reid, says goal is to raise $45 million
Back in 2004, then Rep. Jim Gibbons thought about running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He then thought better of it. Now, 10 years later, a group called the Strategic Political Action Network is trying to garner support for the former governor's ex-wife to challenge the Senate Majority leader. The only problem: She supported Reid in 2010 and has no interest in running against him, she told me today. Indeed, Gibbons, who now works at the same TV station I do (gotta love Nevada)...
UPDATED BELOW WITH STATE'S REACTION, 5 PM: The federal government on Wednesday warned the state of Nevada that it may lose federal funds for its continued failure to meet deadlines for distributing food stamps. "The State’s sustained poor timeliness rate has created hardships for thousands of low- income households across the state and must be addressed," the United States Department of Agriculture's regional administrator, Jesus Mendoza, wrote to Romaine Gilliland, Nevada's health and...
People who comes to Las Vegas inevitably leave "disappointed." So said Hawaii Democratic gubernatorial candidate David Ige in a Monday public radio debate. Really. A transcript: “I’ve spoken with many in the visitor industry and they do believe that legalized gambling would be devastating to their industry. I’ve talked with hotel owners who lament about the fact that, you know, when you see people traveling to Las Vegas, they seem to be excited to leave. And when you see them returning, they’re...
He is combination legislator and city councilman. That's the thrust of a new ad for state Sen. Justin Jones, who touts his sponsorship of that background check bill (vetoed by the governor) and his advocacy for a traffic signal on Blue Dimaond Road. The latter might seem odd for a state lawmaker. But people remember that kind of stuff and vote with it in mind. Jones' ad goes up just as an independent group begins a scathing attack ad pummeling him. Both buys start at about $50,000, with the...
Gov. Brian Sandoval remains a fervent supporter of Common Core education standards while his chosen No. 2, Mark Hutchison, opposes them. The rare split -- lieutenant governor hopeful Hutchison invokes Sandoval's name every other sentence -- was revealed after a May recording of the state senator (attached here) surfaced today courtesy of John Eppolito, perhaps the state's most vocal opponent of the standards. On the recording, made at the Douglas County Republican Central Committee meeting on...
