Tesla Chairman Elon Musk's other company doing business in Nevada gave nearly $40,000 to lawmakers and Gov. Brian Sandoval right before the special session that ratified the gigafactory deal and shortly after the 15-day post-session fundraising blackout period ended. The largest donation from Solar City was a $7,000 thank you to Sandoval right after the blackout period ended, but the company also gave to key lawmakers and partisan caucus PACs, including in the days before the session started....
These will leave a mark.
With the state party a joke and incapable of raising money or executing the simplest tasks, megadonor Sheldon Adelson put his faith in the Clark County party, giving three quarters of what it raised since June. The report shows Las Vegas Sands gave $30,000 out of the $46,000 raised by the county GOP, which really hasn't done much besides occasionally sending generally ignored news releases into the black hole of cyberspace, and despite spending nearly $80,000, mostly on payroll and other costs...

Three state Senate races. The GOP needs all three. And more money spent there than in history -- I predicted $3 million to $4 million. I will be close. Three new ads going up -- one on TV from Justin Jones eviscerating Becky Harris on hot button issues, and two digital ads (bound for TV?) from the GOP-linked Nevada Jobs Coalition, going after Jones and Marilyn Dondero Loop. The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee also has made a TV buy, which starts Thursday. Fasten your seat belts...
