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 (...

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.
Attorney General Adam Laxalt has informed Planned Parenthood's Nevada chapter that he has closed an inquiry into whether the facility was selling body parts. After those controversial videos surfaced a couple of months ago, Laxalt sent a carefully worded letter inquiring about Planned Parenthood's practices. Letters were exchanged, meetings ensued. And now, via a Laxalt spokeswoman: “After carefully reviewing baby tissue and body part donation concerns involving Planned Parenthood, on September...
Of all the faux desperate, last-minute, end-of-the-month money pitches, CD4 hopeful Lucy Flores' may have been the most interesting. It's the first time in that race one of the Democratic primary contenders publicly attacked another one -- and she went after two of them, albeit obliquely. The missive is below, with the pertinent part italicized by me, but notice how she refers to a "millionaire" (Susie Lee) and a "candidate backed by the insitutional status quo" (Ruben Kihuen).
