Donors ponied up about $2.5 million -- more than $1.1 million dollars for the Senate and $1.3 million for the Assembly -- directly to candidates for the Legislature in 2016 last year, records show. Here's an overview, with links to the reports. SENATE If I were trying to cause trouble, which I would never do, I would point out that neither Becky Harris nor Ben Kieckhefer are up this cycle and that he outraised her 2-to-1. I hear they love each other, are working well together and there's no...
ADDENDUM: The SOS search engine did not pick up a $5,000 contribution to Irene Bustamante Adams because she reported it as "Las Vegas Sand Corp." So it's actually $209,000 and three Democrats. MORE: The SOS search angine also missed a $25,000 contribution to AG Adam Laxalt's PAC. So total now up to $234,000. ---- The Las Vegas Sands, a k a Sheldon Adelson, gave $204,000 in campaign contributions in state and local races in 2015, secretary of state's records show. Just under half ($87,500) went...
It's good to be a monopoly. Of the $147,000 it gave in 2015, NV Energy coughed up $55,000 after the session to legislators and their PACs, according to records on the secretary of state's web site. More to come in 2016. All of the contributions, in reverse chronological order, are listed below. NV Energy 12/31/15 1000.00 Adam Paul Laxalt NVEnergy 12/24/15 10000.00 Nevada Mining Association PAC NV Energy 12/21/15 2500.00 John F Marz NV Energy 12/18/15 500.00 John T Moran Nevada Power Company dba...
While the debate roiled this week over rooftop solar and state regulators denying a stay of news rates, a class-action suit was filed alleging a bait and switch by the utility. This was inevitable, I suppose, and is far from the end of this political/legal/public policy battle. You can read it here. Class action complaint against NV Energy 1.12.16.pdf by Jon Ralston

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is trying to woo Jacky Rosen, head of a prominent temple, to run for Congress, sources confirm. Rosen, who plans a DC trip next week, was not available. But I'm told the godfather and his political consigliere, Rebecca Lambe, have talked to Rosen, who helms Congregation Ner Tamid. And, I'm told, she has had coversations with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Team Reid apparently believes Rosen, who is well connected in Southern Nevada, fits the...

The vuvuzelas blared and goals were scored, but this was no soccer game. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Democrats jammed into the MGM Grand's conference center Wednesday evening for a Battle Born/Battleground First in the West Caucus Dinner (Can't you feel the hype?) to listen to the party's three presidential candidates make their pitches. Although many in the crowd may not have emerged with their eardrums fully intact, thanks to the inexplicable and obnoxious plastic stadium horns from the...
The Prince in Winter: Harry Reid enters his final year after forging an unusual bond with the president
Nearly a quarter-century into his capital career, Harry Mason Reid was the leader who wasn’t. Elected in 1982 after a rollercoaster career in Nevada, Reid had shown a fierce determination in climbing the rungs to become Senate Democratic leader 22 years later. But the guy with the stooped shoulders and shuffling gait might have been mistaken for a file clerk in the halls of the Capitol instead of the most powerful Democrat in the Club of 100. He was the leader who rarely appeared on the Sunday...
