U.S. Senate hopeful Joe Heck raised concerns earlier this month that the new Commerce Tax, proposed by Gov. Brian Sandoval and passed by the Legislature, could have an impact “on small businesses and their ability to grow, add to their payroll.” The congressman’s comments, made April 4 to a real estate group, were picked up by a Democratic tracker. Heck’s criticism of fellow Republican Sandoval’s tax plan is his strongest to date and came unprompted as he began his speech to the Institute of...
Chancellor Dan Klaich on Tuesday wrote to state lawmakers to rebut a damaging Review-Journal story that exposed how the system was allowed to write a letter under a consultant's letterhead. The missive, though, addresses mostly issues over the higher ed funding formula and not why an essentially false document was prepared for lawmakers. It also asserts ex-state Sen. Steven Horsford "misunderstood" the relationship between the system and the consultant. Fuel on fire? Posterior-covering? I...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Congressional FEC reports highlights 2. The NV Energy PR campaign 3. Flores’ Bernie money bomb 4. Smartest-dumbest moves of the week A couple of quick stories that will be in Flash tomorrow: Susie Lee had a much smaller plagiarism problem than Lucy Flores, and has now changed one page on her site after I asked about it. Also, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid excluded Jesse Sbaih from his office for a meeting with other Muslim activists. Jesse’s a...
It's not 2010 again. That's the message for Sharron Angle in a new poll for a GOP SuperPAC that shows her losing by -- wait for it -- 56 points to Rep. Joe Heck in her second consecutive attempt to take Harry Reid's U.S. Senate seat. How do you recover from a 56-point deficit? Um, you don't. Game over. In fact, as many of us thought, no game at all. The survey for the Senate Leadership Fund, conducted by the estimable Public Opinion Strategies firm, shows Heck at 67 percent and Angle at 11...
I always thought that Lucy Flores' endorsement of Bernie Sanders was more about her congressional race than his presidential aspirations. And on Wednesday, Sanders showed he is willing to help Flores' candidacy. She leads in many polls based on name recongition but has riased very little money. Sanders wants to help, mentioning her 2014 EMILY's List endorsement (the group is with Susie Lee this cycle and snubbed Flores) in this small-dollar pitch (she will need a lot of these to make any kind...
In her latest email blast, congressional hopeful Michele Fiore links to a interview she did with "Nevada Newsmakers" host Sam Shad, whom she describes as "one of my favorites." It's no wonder why. Shad gives her his entire program -- and I mean gives as in a de facto in-kind donation -- to spew unchallenged all manner of assertions about the BLM, Gov. Brian Sandoval and her Assembly colleagues. Shad asked not one remotely difficult question, and at one point lamented that Fiore had not...
A new poll taken for Senate Democrats shows their candidate in a key district with leads over both possible GOP nominees. The survey, taken by Democratic firm PPP, shows Democrat Nicole Cannizzaro with leads over Republican Assembly members Victoria Seaman and Erv Nelson, with the latter not faring as well in the ballot test. The poll, whose memo I have posted below (and I have seen the entire survey), also indicates some weakness from Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump in the district. The poll...

Muslim congressional candidate legally changed his name as he mulled a race for Rep. Joe Heck's seat
A congressional candidate who says Harry Reid told him he could not win because he is a Muslim petitioned to legally change his Muslim name shortly after he announced his candidacy. Jesse Sbaih, who is seeking Rep. Joe Heck’s seat, was born Mahmoud Ismail Sbaih and filed a petition last November to officially change his name to “Jesse Mahmoud Ismail Sbaih,” records show. The petition was granted in January, ensuring his name would appear on the ballot as “Jesse Sbaih.” Even though sources say...
After getting destroyed in Clark County by Team Sanders, Team Clinton is taking no chances. I told you Wednesday about the initial contact, which was a mixed message of filing grievances and preparing for the May 14 state convention. On Thursday, the campaign, which allowed many of its delegate slots to be filled by Sanders folks, reached out to alternate delegates for a conference call. It's all hands on deck. Hello! I am happy to inform you that you have been selected to represent Clark...
