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...
I think I see a pattern developing. First, the Nevada Jobs Coalition, funded primarily last cycle by Gov. Brian Sandoval's PAC, went up with a site (The Justin Jones Report) and a soon-to-be TV ad going after the SD9 incumbent. Now, the same group has a new site, The Marilyn Dondero Loop Report, and another brutal ad (this one just digital). Yes, this stuff all has limited utility in a state Senate race, with mail providing the most help and doing the most damage. But in these races, and state...
MGM Resorts International Chairman Jim Murren, his wife and the resort's PAC maxed out to the state Democratic Party's federal account last month, records show. Jim and Heather Murren gave $10,000 each and the MGM PAC gave $5,000 to the party, which has $384,000 on hand. (The state GOP has yet to file, but my guess is the cash on hand is close to zero.) Jim Murren has long tilted toward the Democrats and even did an ad for Democrat Numero Uno Harry Reid in 2010. This report also does not...
Mayor Goodman rants at town hall, goes off on audience member, accuses County Commission of trying to kill stadium
UPDATED, 8:15 AM, Monday, 9/22/14: We now know who the mayor berated and questioned what he had done to "make the community a better place." Turns out a lot. Brent Mangus, who walked out after the mayor assailed him, sent me this Friday: I am the person at the soccer stadium meeting last night at Rogich MS that Ms. Goodman went off on. I would love to have the opportunity to tell Ms. Goodman what I have done for this community. In order to maintain some decorum at the meeting I said nothing...
I knew the picture of state Senate Minority leader Michael Roberson with teachers union leaders would be used in the campaign. And here it is. How many Democratic state senators and strategists' heads can explode at once?
Carson City, Jan. 5, 2015 – Gov. Brian Sandoval and legislative leaders today announced the “Moving Nevada Forward” plan, a combination of taxes and reforms that they said will lay the groundwork for the state’s future. With the quartet of legislators arrayed behind him in front of the state Capitol, and in a scene reminiscent of last year’s Tesla announcement, Sandoval invoked the economic development triumph in his remarks. “This is the right thing to do for our state and how fitting that we...
