Sen. Dean Heller wants to be the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, as Politico has reported. Pro tip: Don't give potentially illegal contributions to Senate candidates if you want to be NRSC chair. And the Federal Election Commission says Heller may have done just that with a June donation to Oregon hopeful Monica Wehby. Seems he gave Wehby a donation for the primary....after the election occurred. I'm sure it was just a clerical error, right? The FEC letter is attached here...
American Crossroads GPS, seeing those early voting numbers heavily favoring Republicans, is dropping a $1 million bomb on Rep. Steven Horsford. It is, as expected, about tying Horsford to Obamacare (Could North Las Vegas be the one place in America where the president is still popular?) and portraying him as having mutated from a Nevadan into some DC creature. Horsford and the Democrats are going on the offensive, trying to get free media attacking Karl Rove. But it's hard to fight paid media...
GOP leaders have sent out a slate card that inlcudes a judge running against a friend of Sheldon Adelson, causing the Sands boss to cut off the county party as he has cut off the state. "No money anymore for the Clark County GOP from us," Adelson political point man Andy Abboud told me after Clark County Chairman Dave McKeon put Susan Bush, running against Adelson pal Ron Israel, on the slate card, which is sttached here. Adelson had given the ocunty party $30,000, hoping it could be comepetent...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Exclusive contribution tallies 2. The Weekly Insiders on smartest/dumbest moves best/worst ads, moreA trio of things to ponder as early voting begins with the GOP looking strong: ► More and more, Dems and Repubs ceding SD8 and SD20 to the GOP and focusing all of their energies on Justin Jones' seat. Could that be so? ► If these early numbers continue without the Dems building a real firewall in Clark County and with the South's percentage of the...
It may be too little, too late. But this spot is one of the best of the year.
I want to vote against the margin tax. I really do. I recoil at the idea of making serious tax policy at the ballot box. The tax is not written well – it has a fiscal cliff, the rate is too high. And I do not want to lose my faith in the Legislature to do its job, as hard as the Gang of 63 tries to make me do so. I have many reasons to vote against it. But I just may vote for it. Why? Because of the history of false promises from those spending millions to defeat it and because of their...
