Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. The battle for legislative control: Who has the early advantage? 2. Defunding Planned Parenthood: Net positive for GOP? 3. Leading candidate for governor: The early look 4. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week So AG Adam Laxalt is going for governor? So speculate some of my insiders. And Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak is going for it. That choice, said one of my wry observers of a Laxalt-Sisolak race, is akin to “a choice between brussel...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Heather the savior? 2. GOP debate takes 3. Uber wars 4.Gansert’s gaffe Most of my insiders seems to think Heather Murren would be a formidable candidate, but not all are sure she will run. Neither am I. My conversation with her indicated that she really wants to do this, but is far from there yet. My insiders generally think the Uber wars are over, but some think the company's arrogance is an Achilles heel and the court fight is about to begin. As...
UPDATE: After I posted this, Reid spokeswoman Kristen Orthman finally gave me answer, saying the names would not be released out of privacy: "It was donors who had passed away and had already given to the general election." ---- Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has told the Federal Election Commission to pound sand in its effort to get him to disclose the sources of three contributions. More than a month ago, the FEC asked Reid to identify the sources of three contributions totalling $7,400 ...
UPDATED, 9/18/15, 8:30 AM: Murren would have to switch her registration to be Prince Harry's CD3 savior. She's a nonpartsian and records show she hasn't voted in aprimary in almost a decade. (Those judges shoul;d run anyhow!) Her contribution history also will be an issue if she gets in, although how large remains to be seen. Just a few months ago, on May 7, she gave to GOP Rep. Joe Heck (before he announced for the Senate). Better get a check to Catherine Cortez Masto tout de suite! She's...
In the wake of those controversial videos showing conversations about fetal tissue after abortions, Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt has sent a letter to the Nevada chapter seeking information on the group's practices. The letter is careful not to accuse the local chapter of anything and acknowledges that its website indicates the Nevada organization supplies only abortion pills and therefore would not have any fetal tissue to sell. "Please confirm in writing that the Nevada facilities do...
State Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald, who essentially has bankrupted the GOP and who is involved in a murky financial deal involving a charity, has been working at a six-figure job created for him by state Treasurer Dan Schwartz. McDonald, a former police officer turned lobbyist, has been employed by the state since July 20 as a "senior deputy state treasurer" with a salary ($95,192) and benefits package worth more than $100,000. Schwartz, who used to work under McDonald as the...
UPDATED, 6:15 AM, 9/17/15: Here is an email I received Wednesday night from Heidi Gansert: I wanted to follow up on our conversation today. I support the Governor's agenda - I support his education priorities and the funding that enables our education system to modernize. Additionally, I do not support efforts to repeal the tax package that a super majority of the legislature approved. So....everyone clear? I don't even know where to start with newly minted state Senate candidate Heidi...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. The ballot initiative Angle 2. Will the Dems get a real candidate in CD3? 3. The school choice lawsuits 4. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week Happy post-Labor Day campaign rush, dear premium subscribers. Well, sort of. The abstract: Quiet on the U.S. Senate race front (Catherine Cortez Masto is scheduled to be on “Ralston Live” on Monday.) Democrats still have no candidate in CD3 after trying to woo some high-profile folks (see below) while DC...
The cabs have hired lobbyists (again), and some commissioners think they can slow Uber through the business licensing process. But, Legislative Counsel Brenda Erdoes says, you can't. Check out her opinion below, requested by Uber backer Michael Roberson, that says the county can't put any special requirements on transportation network companies.
