Musk, Rive invite lawmakers to private briefing on energy at Tesla gigafactory with The Revenant as special guest
Tesla CEO Elon Musk and his cousin, SolarCity chief Lyndon Rive, hosted a small group of lawmakers at the Northern Nevada gigafactory on Wednesday evening to talk about unlocking the power of renewables in Nevada. Venture capitalist Nancy Pfund, who has invested in renewables, also was expected at the event at the still-under-construction sprawling complex not far from Reno. The governor's economic development czar, Steve Hill, also was supposed to be there -- Gov. Brian Sandoval and Lt. Gov....
Senate Dems attack GOP candidate for not speaking about taxes; she responds by....having someone else speak
I admit it: I was going to ignore the stunt news conference by state Senate Minority Leader Aaron Ford and -- cue the laugh track -- "concerned residents" about how GOP hopeful Heidi Gansert would not speak about last session's tax increase. Oh, they tried to entice me by linking to my post about her embarrassing equivocations. But I refused to bite. It was a cute gimmick, to be sure. But not worthy of a post. Until, until, until, THIS: Reno, NV – Today Assistant Majority Leader Ben Kieckhefer...
If you are willing to sign an inane, Norquistian no-tax pledge, an even more superficial and nutty "Contract with Nevada" and if you are "willing to explain to a parent that they must return a free laptop if the computer had been found to be ineffective for learning," you, too, could be endorsed by the Republican Party in Nevada's capital. Please note: This is not a parody. The Carson City Republican Party has sent out letters to filed candidates indicating how they can receive points for...
Saying community activist Susie Lee is "part of the wealthy elite" and is "trying to purchase" Cresent Hardy's congressional seat, the Culinary Union has penned a letter to its labor brethren to try to help state Sen. Ruben Kihuen. The letter, which is below and penned by Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Arguello-Kline in advance of the AFL-CIO convention, says quite simply of Lee, "We can't let her buy this primary." It is the strongest sign yet of how all in the Culinary is for Kihuen, and how...
Washoe County Republican Chairman Adam Khan, the brash, young leader who twice predicted on "Ralston Live" that Donald Trump would lose Nevada, has announced he will resign after next month's state convention. Khan, 24, announced his departure late Wednesday, along with other party officers. He had been outspoken as recently as Feb. 4 on "Ralston Live" that Trump simply did not have the ground game to win here. In an interview Wednesday, Khan told me that he and others have wanted to leave for...
Democratic U.S. Senate contender Catherine Cortez Masto has made a six-figure buy in Nevada that begins Wednesday with a bio ad designed to introduce her to voters. In the one-minute spot, she emphasizes her large family, including her father, who is identified as being from Mexican heritage and heading the Las Vegas tourism efforts (he ran the convention authority) but who was best known as a Clark County commissioner (not mentioned). Her efforts to fight sex trafficking also are mentioned, as...
On Feb. 3, 2012, an hour before he and his wife, Ann, stood on stage uncomfortably at Trump Tower while the eponymous owner endorsed him, Mitt Romney gave me an interview for my television program at a nearby hotel. During the interview, I asked Romney why he would take an endorsement from Trump, who had been espousing birtherism and had criticized the former Massachusetts governor. The transcript is below, but my favorite part, in light of last week's Chris Christie genuflection to Teflon Don...
Faraday Future, the electric car startup moving to North Las Vegas, has agreed to acquire a $75 million bond and to fund a $13 million escrow account to guarantee the infrastructure needed for Apex to be a viable site for its billion-dollar facility, thus reducing the state's overall liability for the project. In a letter to the state dated Wednesday that I have obtained, Faraday agrees to post the bond to ensure that "water, wastewater and rail infrastructure" costs are covered, a security ...
