And "Ralston Live" makes its debut in a political ad campaign, the race for Las Vegas mayor:
It happens every year -- thousands of voters knocked off the active rolls in Clark County because they have not cast ballots in several cycles and cannot be found. It usually disproportionately hurts the Democrats, who have more transient voters -- and this month is no different: At the end of February, Democrats had a 109,000-vote edge in Nevada's most populous county; as of today, it's about 101,000. That's because the GOP lost only 13,500 voters in the so-called purge while the Democrats...
I have been calling it the Business License Tax since it was released by the governor. Why? 1. Because it is a tax. 2. Because BLT is acronymically funnier. Now tax maven Carole Vilardo has revealed she agrees at the top of a line-by-line explanation of the tax bill that will have its first hearing Wednesday: Please note: This “fee” does not fit the definition of a fee. Because the revenue is used to fund general government expenses, it is a tax. It will be referred to in this document as a tax...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. The truth about Tesla’s big project – slowdown or not? 2. Third-of-session grades 3. The BLF cometh 4. Smartest/dumbest moves Mixed grades from my insiders on lawmakers one-third of the way through. Like a slow-starting or fast-starting student, the last two-thirds and especially the final can flip a semester grade, so it is early. But some instructive stuff below on how they are being perceived so far. My grades: Roberson: A-minus....
Ah, Nevada. No open-toed shoes or blouses without collars. Why? "Hot brass is not fun." You can buy the rifle package or the machine-gun package. Get ready you anti-Nevadan Bloombergians!
I wrote about it Sunday. And today the Carson City Democrats presented their blueprint for Nevada. Will it ever get off the pages? It's attached here.

Some gems: ►Best line of the week: We are witnessing the result of two disastrous initiatives that have and will have a greater impact on the state than...
One day after the Legislature passed a measure to exempt school construction from prevailing wage laws, the AFL-CIO began airing an ad designed to get the governor's attention. Gov. Brian Sandoval is expected to sign the measure, but the AFL-CIO isn't waving a white flag just yet. The group had been walking in key districts, but could not stop the Assembly from passing the Senate bill on a near-party-line vote. Here's the ad:
The Clark County Education Association plans to give Gov. Brian Sandoval political cover with supportive TV ads about his education plan. Here are the first two, which are slated to start next week.
