Secondly, AZ is an "its," not a "their."

WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT. This week: 1.My insiders on Faraday: A. Predict the NO votes. B. Predict the Democrats' play. C. Predict the surprise (which it won't be because you predicted it). D. Bet the over or under on out by Friday. And their general thoughts on the deal. 2. The Dems and CD3 3. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week Very smart stuff on Faraday from the insiders, who point out it’s all about opening up Apex. The votes are almost surely there for two-thirds (especially if they...
The Chinese billionaire behind Faraday reveals himself! Huge news: Read all about it, one week before a special session is about to be called. Deal with Faraday scheduled to be announced Thursday. FF letter by Jon Ralston
The DCCC won't take "no" for an answer. Despite rejections from some high-profile recruits in Rep. Joe Heck's district, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sent a couple of representatives to Las Vegas this week to try to find a candidate. This comes after ex-Secretary of State Ross Miller, state Senate Minority Leader Aaron Ford, ex-water czar Pat Mulroy and community leader Hetaher Murren (among others) all rejected entreaties. But DCCC reps Ty Matsdorf and Kelly Ward, the top...
Nevada may remain out of reach for the GOP presidential nominee if the Latino vote rises as expected in 2016, making up more than a fifth of the vote, according to a new analysis. The study by the left-leaning Center for American Progress is not news, but analyzes the numbers and puts them in stark relief. "In Nevada, the rising number of Latino voters could provide a firewall for Democrats," the study, posted below and analyzing demographic shifts in several key states, says. "Although...
UPDATED, 6:30 AM, 12/9/15: Seems this campaign is being orchestrated by the "think tank" called NPRI, the Nevada Policy Research Institute. Seems Faith Lutheran's principal received the letter from Mountain View Principal Kris Schneider, who told me Tuesday night after I was tipped to NPRI's involvement: "Yes, I did get the letter from NPRI and was in communication with Victor Jeunks (sp?) (she means Joecks, NPRI's veep) about it Monday afternoon via email. I then contacted Matt Fischer (...

Uber vs. Clark County 4. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week Lots of smart commentary on the impending special session, which you subscribers...
The American Gaming Association is ramping up its effort to influence the presidential race by sending candidates a series of questions about the industry. The questionnaire comes nearly six months after AGA boss Geoff Freeman sent the candidates a letter encouraging them to learn about the industry. The questions range from simple requests to meet with industry reps to IRA regs to daily fantasy sports. I hope the AGA releases the returned ones. It will be fascinating to see which ones reply....
This will be getting a higher profile soon.
