WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. One TRIC pony? 2. My insiders on the Adelson-Raiders-stadium story 3. Federal campaign report predictions 4. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week My insiders had some great stuff on the Adelson gambitm, with most recognizing the LVCVA-gutting motivation but some saying he could win. Long battle to come. And who will win the CD4 fundraising sweepstakes for the fourth quarter of 2015? Susie or Ruben? A couple of stories to watch, one from me and one from...
Once upon a time, The Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial page was a bastion of libertarianism, arguing, among other things, that public money should not be used to subsidize stadium projects. But on Sunday, after prominent stories given to the newspaper by its new owner, the RJ has switched its position and come out in favor of public money for a new stadium being pushed by said owner, Sheldon Adelson, to possibly host the NFL Raiders. The editorial was featured on the home page of the site,...
Here's what UNLV President Len Jessup sent to a small group today:
UPDATED, 4:15 PM: Culinary spokeswoman Bethany Khan says the situation "has been resolved." How so? I'm told the Sanders campaign has agreed not to try to enter the employee dining rooms again. Updated with statement from Culinary leader Geo Arguello-Kline: We can confirm multiple reports of Bernie Sanders’ campaign staffers attempting and gaining access to Employee Dining Rooms at Las Vegas Strip properties where over 57,000 members that we represent work. We are disappointed and...
On the same day Jeb Bush made a campaign stop in Elko, Right to Rise, the Super PAC linked to his campaign, pounded him in GOP mailboxes on his missed Senate votes along with a piece about Jeb's plan to wipe out ISIS.
After losing in District Court, the Coalition for Nevada's Future (thank you, gamers) has appealed to the high court to stop the R.I.P. Commerce Tax (no thank you, Knechtians) repeal. It's 53 pages. Filed Opening Brief 1 25 Final Final by Jon Ralston
Despite the Public Utilities Commission's apparent succumbing to pressure to reconsider grandfathering 17,000 rooftop solar customers, SolarCity will file a referendum Monday to change the existing law, sources confirm. The referendum will ask voters whether they agree with certain portions of the law (Senate Bill 374), thus either repealing those provisions or locking them in. In essence, the referendum will remove the cap on so-called net metering. repeal the part of the law that allows the...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT. This week: 1. Exclusive look at numbers in the race for the Assembly – where there are openings, and where there are not 2. Presidential campaigns in Nevada 3. My insiders on the solar flare and if it will be a campaign issue 4. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week The usually great stuff from my team of insiders: Split on impact of solar flare (although most say not much effect on Campaign '16) and on presidential campaigns (although most still think HRC wins here...
Why would a prominent Nevada union invest $10,000 in an assemblywoman who once suggested unruly union picketers should get a "a bullet in your head" and used her elected position to try to squelch union protests? I wondered about that after Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, not known for her respect for the law or for political foes, filed a revised campaign report after initially showing zero contributions last year, an obvious falsity. Fiore's new report shows about half of her large contributions...
UPDATED, 1/21/16, 10:45 AM: This list of unknowns, courtesy of PolitiFact's Riley Snyder, is the "highly respected" Latino steering committee. A picture is worth a...media hit, I guess. ---- When Hillary Clinton's campaign came to Nevada in the spring of 2015, when it hired a well-connected Latina to helm her campaign here and when the candidate arrived to get to the left of the president on immigration reform, the message was clear: I own the Latino vote. Later in the year, realizing that he...
