Three huge stories broke in Nevada on Wednesday and the two Las Vegas newspapers revealed their journalism bankruptcy. The trio: 1. The Gaming Control Board filed a complaint against Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas Sands that will result in a $2 million fine, the fifth-largest in state history. 2. The state Supreme Court ended Adelson's crusade to knock Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez off a case that could cost him a fortune. 3. Chancellor Dan Klaich sent a retirement deal to regents. On the first two,...
A Super PAC that has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from major labor interests is helping fund GOP state Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson's field operation, records show. Defending Main Street, which was formed to defend Establishment Republicans from Tea Party challengers and has taken close to a million dollars this cycle from union interests, recently disclosed to the Federal Election Commission that it is contributing to Advanced Micro Targeting, which is overseeing Roberson'...
Education activist Susie Lee essentially has pulled even with frontrunner Lucy Flores, the former assemblywoman, according to a poll taken for her campaign last month. Flores is at 26 percent, Lee at 23 and state Sen. Ruben Kihuen well back at 11 percent. The survey, taken by the well known national Democratic firm of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner from April 25-27 of 407 voters, has a margin of error of nearly 5 percent. Lee's campaign believes the survey reflects a message field they have had...
As the New York Times reported, Sheldon Adelson has endorsed Donald Trump for president. Why? Because they are both Republicans and Trump won "fair and square," as Adelson put it. But wait: Isn't Israel always paramount in Adelson's mind? Isn't his Jewish faith and his desire to protect Israel what animates much of his activism? I thought so. But I may have been wrong. After all, Trump has said a lot of stuff and been supported by a lot of people that might have given Adelson pause. To wit: ►...
Clark County Commission candidates Marilyn Kirkpatrick and Steve Ross are both on TV, but his is a small cable buy and hers is a large network and cable buy. Ross's ad, a $15,000 cable buy, goes after Kirkpatrick for her legislative record, some of it fair and expected, some of it absolutely misleading (she cut education!). No cites in the ad, but the only time Kirkpatrick "cut" education was during the recession when the governor presented cuts. She has been a huge advocate for more funding...
The Senate Majority PAC, which helps Democratic candidates, is up with a brutal hit on Rep. Joe Heck, locked in a key race with Catherine Cortez Masto. It's $450,000 in Vegas and Reno.
