"Actually, you know they just lost the White House," Trump says, but even his bitterness and lying is low energy.

@magmaris I don't have to, but I am working and have it on in the background so I can occasionally mock it.

Trump is low energy, prompter-focused so far, tbh, with pretty low energy ad libs.

@atlasunshrugged @AdamLaxalt Plenty of Republicans could be competitive. He ain't one of them.

@atlasunshrugged @AdamLaxalt Because he's a terrible candidate, and Nevada is a lean blue state.

After covering politics long enough, you think you lose the capacity to be astonished. But I find, especially in Nevada, this is not so. How else to explain a forum Saturday during which one candidate for attorney general appeared not to know the difference between the public records law and the Open Meeting Law and finished by declaring he had no support from Nevada lobbyists, when his campaign manager, a registered Carson City advocate, was in the room. I’ve seen poor debate performances. I’...
The ad below is online and about to go on TV with a lot of money behind it, I am reliably told. It is about this case in which state Sen. Justin Jones worked for Sands boss Sheldon Adelson and which came up when he first won his state Senate seat by 300 votes in 2012. The ad below -- people with goatees look SO sinister -- and this web page show this race is about to get nasty. He is running against Becky Harris. Here's the spot, which is produced by the Nevada Jobs Coalition, run by Team...
House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy, who succeeded the defeated and resigned Eric Cantor, will be in Las Vegas next week to help Rep. Joe Heck raise money. Among those on the host committee are four gaming company luminaries: Caesars' Gary Loveman, Las Vegas Sands' Mike Leven and Station Casinos' Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta. Many well-known business doyens also are on the list. Heck is considered a solid favorite against Democrat Erin Bilbray.
Republican attorney general hopeful Adam Laxalt, who already has announced that the state's GOP sheriffs have endorsed him, now has endorsements from GOP district attorneys. In other news, it's hot again today in Las Vegas. But it's a dry heat. (I wonder if Democratic hopeful Ross Miller, the secretary of state, can get former Democratic governors such as Richard Bryan or the guy who came after him to endorse him? That would be HUGE.) Laxalt's announcement leads with Washoe County DA Dick...
Imagine if Gov. Brian Sandoval had just said no to Tesla. Imagine if he had told Elon Musk he would not submit to his demands for as much as a billion dollars in tax breaks. Imagine if the governor had announced to the world that Nevada would not play the incentives game. Just imagine. And then realize how insane that is. You can say Musk was Vito Corelone, making Sandoval an offer he couldn’t refuse, forcing him to accept onerous conditions because there is no alternative. You can say the...
