WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week’s questions: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Most interesting thing you read or heard about Nevada politics this week? 3. Thoughts on the State of the State speech? Style? Substance? Surprises? Flashpoints?   4, IndyTalks with Lombardo -- what was of interest?   Generally good reviews from the insiders for the State of the State.

Speculate about the new Lombardo administration: Who will he hire? Who should he hire? What kind of governor will he be?   Great response from the insiders this week, as you will see. Before we begin, a note: I texted Ben Kieckhefer about becoming Joe Lombardo’s chief of staff on Wednesday. He has yet to reply. I am sure it...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week’s questions: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Most interesting thing you read or heard about Nevada politics this week? 3.  React to results: Biggest surprises? Trends? Observations? Go to town! I am in mourning from the Bills loss and in no mood to write much – I will do a post-mortem column at some point – so let me briefly say that the insiders really put a lot of through into this one. I appreciate them, and you should, too. ►Long musing:...

I'll ask for predictions next week, so this week: What have been the next campaigns this cycle, and which candidates have performed the best? Which have been the worst? The insider who (rightly) gave me a hard time for asking a group of campaign consultants and lobbyists for the best/worst campaigns was right, but many did put...

Rank the statewide candidates most likely to lose from most to least and say why. 4. Rank the congressional incumbents most likely to lose from most likely to least and say why. The insiders agree that Susie Lee is very vulnerable and just may lose. Some think CCM might hold on while the gov will lose. I don’t have any clue,...

Thoughts on the CCEA non-endorsement: Motivation, impact? 4. What are the biggest wild cards left that could determine who wins and who loses?   Good stuff, as always. Some good CCEA rants, but I still think the biggest story here is what a disservice John Vellardita did to his members, who deserve to have a recommendation in...

Thoughts on the gubernatorial debate? 4. Polling seems to show movement toward Repubs in the races. Think it's real? Is the wave really deepening? What could enhance it/stop it?   Lots of good stuff below, including a consensus analysis of the debate favoring the gov but no one sure if it means…anything. Some nasty comments (...
