More voters registered in Nevada last year than in 2007 and 2011 combined, indicating a heightened level of activism as the caucuses and elections loom. The numbers (see below) also indicate that as Democrats try to build a large lead before November that conservative groups, especially Engage NV, have done an excellent job maintaining parity. Yes, the Democrats lose more voters due to inactivations (people who can still vote but have not returned cards sent to their addresses). But the GOP-...
MSNBC and Telemundo will co-host a town hall with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in Las Vegas on Feb. 18, two days before Nevada Democrats hold presidential caucuses, I've confirmed. The state party will partner with the networks on the event that is sure to draw distinctions on key Nevada issues and those important to Latinos. Hispanic turnout was 14 percent in the 2008 Nevada caucuses, according to exit polls. Yes: We matter.
Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve, a nonpartisan who rarely endorses, has embraced her longtime friend, Devon Reese, the Democratic attorney seeking Greg Brower's state Senate seat. Schieve is at the top of a fundraiser next month for Reese, who is considered an underdog to Heidi Gansert, the GOP hopeful and former assemblywoman and gubernatorial chief of staff seeking the key swing seat. (Businessman Eugene Hoover, a Republican, and Dennis Hof, the Libertarian brothel kingpin, also are running.) (...
When is an endorsement not an endorsement? Brenda Romero says she didn't mean to "endorse" Bernie Sanders when she agreed to serve on his "voluntary steering committee." And the young DREAMer, who is the student body president at a Community College of Southern Nevada campus, did not raise a stink on Jan. 21 when she was listed in a release headlined, "Sanders Campaign Unveils Nevada Latino Steering Committee." But now, two weeks later, she has endorsed Hillary Clinton, claiming she was misled...
The solar companies have marketed themsleves aggressively to folks, promising lower rates and more. Now, one couple has filed a complaint and is seeking class action after the net metering flare-up. It's below. SolarCity_ClassActionComplaint.pdf by Jon Ralston
Coming on the heels of her endorsement by Nevada DREAMers, Hillary Clinton is taking to the airwaves to make her case that she is the best choice for Hispanics with spots starring some of those same folks. This cohort could be critical in the Feb. 20 caucus and in the general election. TV: Translation: It’s when things get tough... that you see the friends by your side. There is no other candidate who has fought as hard for our families as Hillary Clinton. She stands with us to achieve...
After putting out a news release last month implying the utility supported a 20-year hold harmless period from new rates for rooftop solar customers and then presenting a filing that essentially argued that regulators should not do so, NV Energy has filed supplemental testimony indicating it backs the long grace period. NV Energy executive Shawn Elicegui (see the submitted testimony below) explicitly recommends in testimony filed Friday the 20-year grandfathering for those who had solar panels...
Tonight, the Las Vegas Review-Journal posted on its site not a story, not a brief, but this: "Motion filed in Jacobs lawsuit against Las Vegas Sands Corp." A headline, a short paragraph about the motion in a case about a case involving the paper's owner, Sheldon Adelson, and no elaboration or background. If you click on the link to the motion, filed by the ex-employee of Adelson and with serious allegations about what happened with the man ousted from RJ leadership, it is heavily redacted, too...
A survey paid for by the solar industry indicates voters are angry about the Public Utilities Commission decision on rooftop solar and want a special session of the Legislature to reverse it. The statewide poll, paid for by the umbrella group Bring Back Solar Alliance and conducted in late January, found: ►89 percent disagree with the PUC's decision on so-called net metering rates. I have seen the question, which reduces the complex issue to a simple proposition of rates being raised. But the...
