Since I am a fun guy to have at parties, when the Democrats held a "we are unfied" presser Wednesday, I decided to ask the federal candidates pounding Donald Trump about their own backing of a woman involved in an FBI probe. This came after 20 minutes of a "news" conference bereft of any news. Democratic Chair Roberta Lange, Senate hopeful Catherine Cortez Masto, congressional contenders Jacky Rosen and Ruben Kihuen and legislative leaders Aaron Ford and Irene Bustamante-Adams hyped their...
One Nation, a Mitch McConnell-linked PAC, wasted no time after the primary trying to help Rep. Joe Heck win Harry Reid's Senate seat, laying down a $2.3 million buy. The first ad, which you can see below, tries to tether Heck to popular Gov. Brian Sandoval, on veterans issues. The buy starts today and runs for a month in both urban markets. One Nation showed last year it is poised to spend in Nevada. And so it begins....
A sliver of the electorate will make decisions by the end of Tuesday that will shape the races for the fall. Here's what to watch for as the returns come in, and check my Twitter feed (@ralstonreports) tonight for results: 1. Turnout will not be much more than 5 percent today and may be half that, if past is prologue (under 6 percent the last two cycles). Two-thirds of the votes likley have been cast before today. So in Clark County, where all but a couple of key races will take place, only a...
Adelson, hoping for legislative rubber-stamp of stadium plan, spreads more than $200K to candidates in final fortnight
The Las Vegas Sands, which wants lawmakers to convene a special session this summer to pave the way for Sheldon Adelson's stadium, contributed $211,500 to lawmakers and candidates in the two weeks leading up to Tuesday's primary. The donations, made to candidates of both parties, are highly unusual in volume and breadth so late in an election. Lawmakers, either in a special or regular session next year, would almost surely have to pass a law enabling the stadium financing scheme to divert...
Day 14, Friday, June 10: Huge day on the final day, as usual: Nearly 10,000 folks voted in Clark County. Final number of 76,500 far above last cycle's 61,000. But even with mail, the total is 90,192. That's only 10 percent. Partisan totals are higher: Democrats: 45,868, or 11.8 percent Republicans: 36,125, or 13.2 percent Bottom line: The CD4 turnout still looks to be about 25,000 or so when all is said and done, unless Election Day turnout is unusually high. And don't forget a few hundred...
Tony Baca, a member of Assemblyman Brent Jones' anti-tax caucus, has started a robocall against his primary foe, Artemus Ham, that seeks to exploit the transgender bathroom issue by invoking a notorious child murder. The call, which I have attached here, uses the horrific 1997 murder of 7-year-old Sherrice Iverson in a casino restroom to frighten people about transgender bathrooms. "Artemus Ham is heartless when it comes to the mother of 7-year-old Sherrice Iverson," the recording says. "I don'...
