@Salinas_Esq @TheNVIndy We may. But I am really not sure that format is the best for these races. But any illumination is good.

UPDATED, 9:45 PM: I had the experience this evening of talking with Rocky De La Fuente, the man of .23 percent, who told me: ►He was not put up to the recount filing by anyone. "I do not like Trump," he told me. "I do not like Hillary. I do not like either one." ►So why file in Nevada? Because, he told me, there were shenanigans in the February caucus and they had "the worst turnout in history." This is false. Turnout was robust -- about 80,000 or so. He then told me Clinton won, 6,000-5,000,...
THE NEVADA INDEPENDENT IS COMING SOON! ---- After being advised by the attorney general that he can continue to administer a school choice program despite the Supreme Court gutting it, State Treasurer Dan Schwartz sent an email to applicants Wednesday telling them he is moving forward with the program. "The Nevada ESA Portal is now Available to sign up for your Education Savings Account!," the header for the email sent Wednesday declared, less than two months after the high court declared the...
Jason Frierson, who is returning to the Assembly as speaker after a shocking 2014 loss, will have Teresa Benitez-Thompson as his majority leader, providing an all-minority leadership team that also encompasses both urban regions, sources tell me. Irene Bustamante Adams, who led the caucus until Frierson was elected speaker-designate, will be speaker pro tem and chair the critical Commerce Committee. Here are all the assignments: Leadership Speaker Designate – Assemblyman Jason Frierson Speaker...
THE NEVADA INDEPENDENT IS COMING SOON! ------------ There was an insignificant dropoff from the presidential race to the U.S. Senate contest in Nevada, Hillary Clinton lost the rurals by nearly 40 (!) points and Catherine Cortez Masto won Clark County by more than Clinton. Those are some of the nuggets panned from the Nov. 8 results in Nevada, which showed, yet again, how the Silver State is really three states. You can still win one (Cortez Masto) or two (Clinton) counties and lose the rest of...
THE NEVADA INDEPENDENT IS COMING SOON! ------------ Much has been made of the high Latino vote in Nevada helping Hillary Clinton to a rare win a battleground state, and Catherine Cortez Masto to victory in the U.S. Senate race. It was significant, but how significant? Conflicting data already has emerged via entrance and exit polls. Here’s what has been done: PRESIDENTIAL ►Exits: The Nevada exit polls indicated Latino turnout here was 18 percent, which is what they indicated about 2012. That’s...
THE NEVADA INDEPENDENT IS COMING SOON! ------------ You may think the person most responsible for Sen. Patty Farley now caucusing with the Democrats is Aaron Ford, the newly minted majority leader. He’s not. Michael Roberson is. That’s right. The state Senate GOP leader, who has had an oil and water relationship with Farley for a long time, ensured that she had almost no choice to leave the caucus and become a nonpartisan lawmaker, the first in a half-century. And it began late last week,...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: PREDICTIONS! MY INSIDER PREDICTIONS Electoral college - 290 Clinton, 248 Trump - but let's be honest, anything is possible. This election is about so much more than candidates. It really feels like a referendum on the direction of a nation. It's calling the question on what's been done over the last eight years and responding to the fear of change. As multiculturalism sets in to the fabric of America, more and more fear and insecurity pokes its head out,...
