A few hours after a GOP-aligned PAC released poll numbers showing their candidates with leads in key Senate districts, I obtained results from Democratic pollsters showing their candidates within the margin of error. The fact that state Sen. Justin Jones (46-44 over Becky Harris) and Assemblywoman Marilyn Dondero Loop (44-46 with Patricia Farley) are in such competitive races in these polls with unknown foes tells you everything you need to know about this election. Everyone thinks Jones' race...
It's Hispanics in Politics in a landslide. And the group just keeps embarrassing itself even more. First, it was the flip then flop then flip again in the Heck-Bilbray congressional race. And then today, the group sent out a news release saying so many Republican showed up to endorse candidates that only one Democrat, Ross Miller, got endorsed in statewide races. Who does that? What kind of process is that? I'm sure Miller (how DID that happen?) is thrilled to somehow have made it, and this is...
You read that headline right. So reports BuzzFeed. The highlights: ►Democrats Fear Brian Sandoval Could Peel Away Latino Voters In 2016 The DNC isn’t worried about Marco Rubio or Susana Martinez, but sources who spoke with top officials tell BuzzFeed News they think Brian Sandoval could be a problem for them. ►In meetings in the last month top DNC officials have repeatedly mentioned that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval is best positioned to peel away Latino voters from the Democratic Party in...

The teachers union is going up with two spots to promote The Education Initiative. They begin Tuesday. The buy is about $700,000, I'm reliably told. And they could make this very, very interesting. (I love how they use that controversial UNLV study to make their case. Now about how TEI will affect only the "largest corporations." Um....)
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. The election by the numbers 2. The Weekly Insiders on ads, outcomes and more 3. Smartest/dumbest moves, coming campaign developments Apropos of my analysis of numbers this week, here’s a comment from one of my insiders to think about: The numbers in the SOS race are concerning for Marshall who seemed to be ahead. It's a sign that there's a real chance Republicans sweep the statewide seats - especially without a major Democratic turnout in Clark County...
When Steve Hill, the state's economic development czar, picked up the phone a year ago, Ryan Mulvenon, an energy policy staffer for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was on the line. “Diarmuid O'Connell (vice president of business development) is going to be calling you because Tesla is interested in putting a manufacturing plant in the Western United States, and they’re considering Nevada,” Mulvenon told Hill, as the latter recalled it recently. (Reid's office confirmed the conversation, and...
