A group dedicated to helping anti-voter ID candidates has formed a political action committee in Nevada, a clear attempt to help Democratic secretary of state hopeful Kate Marshall. The iVote Fund was registered last week with the secretary of state's office, with its stated mission: "To educate and activate the general public regarding the importance of voting and the role of secretaries of state in the voting process and working to elect candidates who believe in expanding not restricting the...
It is ahead in all the polls, but it's not enough above 50 percent for supporters to feel confident. The new ad, which starts statewide today and goes through the election, is attached here. UPDATED, 4:15 pm. HERE'S THE AD:
Ross Miller has handed Adam Laxalt a gift. Laxalt and his GOP allies are intent on focusing the attorney general’s race on Miller’s acceptance of thousands of dollars of tickets, trips and trinkets, hoping to tarnish the reputation of the two-term secretary of state. But neither the Republican hopeful nor his friends have accurately portrayed what these gifts actually are, underestimating the total while overestimating the contents. There are, however, serious questions about whether Miller...
UPDATED: The Republican Attorneys General Association has reacted to the new ad with a huge buy that starts Tuesday and lasts a month. I bet it's not positive. Ever since news broke of a law firm evaluation that called AG hopeful Adam Laxalt a "train wreck," you knew it would be a focal point of the Democrats' ad campaign. And so it begins with a new spot from the state Democratic Party, which begins with yours truly's original report (ugh) and then pivots to Ross Miller's bonafides. It could...
Before she collects that $225,000 fee next month or speaking to the UNLV Foundation, Hillary Clinton will headline a fundraiser for the state Democratic Party, with a fraction of the proceeds going to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's re-election fund. The event will take place before Clinton's speech and a yet-to-be disclosed location and will cost donors $10,000 for a VIP ticket ($15,000 for couples) and $1,000 if you just want to go to the reception. The event is for a joint fundraising...
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)...
