The gaming industry and solar companies are popular in Nevada. The Public Utilities Commission and Cliven Bundy? Not so much. Those are among the findings of a comprehensive poll of Nevada voters taken this month and expected to be released Wednesday (I obtained an early copy) that also found Nevadans wouldn't mind taxing mining companies (what else is new?) and still don't like Yucca Mountain (despite what Ted Cruz tried to tell me a few months ago). The survey also indicated Nevadans love...
When Maddy Ralston came into this world almost 21 years ago, it was love at first sight. I cradled her in my arms, my adopted miracle, and couldn’t stop crying. She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. As she grew up, Maddy eschewed the traditional girly girl stuff. “If you get me a doll for Christmas, I’ll cut its head off,” she once admonished me. She refused to wear the skirts in the school uniform catalogue, preferring the khaki pants. She became a full-fledged tomboy before high...
A news release came out Tuesday afternoon giving voters a guide to who the small-minded, intolerant, no-solution political arsonists are that Republicans should oppose in the primary. The release didn't say that explicitly, but the language is very clear: These are people with no business in public office. Rarely is a voter guide provided that tells voters who to oppose, but this is it. Very helpful of them to lump the Know-Nothings together: Insurgent Republican Assembly Candidates Stand...
A Super PAC trying to help Rep. Joe Heck defeat the woman who would be the first Latina ever elected to the U.S. Senate is trying to peel off Hispanic voters with a new radio ad. America's PAC, using tactics it has employed before, is running a Spanish-language radio ad (audio attached, transcript below) that essentially accuses Cortez Masto of supporting pro-choice policies that "abort our future." The ad's first line shows its intent: "Does Catherine Cortez Masto care that 3 out of 5 babies...
Irate Berne Sanders supporters did not just leave threatening voicemails and texts for state Democratic Party Chairwoman Roberta Lange but also launched an assault on the businesses she oversees, the owner says. Tom Gallagher, the former Caesars CEO and congressional candidate, said that his son's tavern, the Porchlight Grille, began receiving threats shortly after the convention ended in chaos Saturday. Lange is the day operations manager there. "Beginning about 3am on Sunday morning our...
The state Democratic Party has filed a stinging complaint with national Democrats over the "explosive situation" and "paranoid fantasy of fraud and delegate theft" created by Bernie Sanders supporters at Saturday's state convention, warning it could be a harbinger of what's to come in Philadelphia in July. The key section from party lawyer Bradley Schrager to the DNC's Rules Committee: "We believe, unfortunately, that the tactics and behavior on display here in Nevada are harbingers of things...
One caller suggested she would be hung or burned. (He brilliantly left a callback number.) Another suggested she is a "corrupt b--tch." Still another said it will come "back to bite you in the ass." This is what State Democratic Party Chairwoman Roberta Lange has been subjected to since Bernie Sanders supporters became incensed at Saturday's state convention. I have posted three of the vociemails here -- there are more to come. They are incredible. Warning: Language. UPDATED: Here are...
On the eve of the Nevada Democratic Convention in Las Vegas, Friday the 13th as the calendar would have it, Bernie Sanders issued a news release asking for good fortune on that traditionally unlucky day. The Vermont senator, prodded by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who feared unrest at the state confab after a hard-fought caucus battle, talked of “transformational change in America through honest and dignified discussion of the issues” and emphasized “working together respectfully and...
