Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you read or heard about Nevada politics this week? Thoughts on the recall decision and predictions whether Roberson & Co. will give up or keep fighting? Does NV Energy have any chance of defeating ECI (note the $12M buy)? Or is the hope to make it close to help with lobbying Leg in 2019? The insiders think the recalls are DOA, but are split on NV Energy vs. Switch/Sheldon. Good stuff herein...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? What's the most interesting thing you read about Nevada politics this week? Thoughts on the Laxalt education plan? Thoughts on the UNLV/regents/donors debacle? Great stuff this week from the insiders, including some real insight into the higher ed debacle. And much more: ►Smart: It seems to me that people are conflating the problems. There is little doubt that the Regents are unpopular, and how they become regents is...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you read this week about Nevada politics? Thoughts with filing over? My insiders were full of fire and fury this week, not to mention some hilarious lines. Lots of sympathy/scorn for Tark, little sympathy for Roberson, and more: ►Fixed: Rindels’ piece on the issues with Len Jessup, the Engelsted Foundation, the Regents, and the Chancellor was rich. For some reason, the Las Vegas community...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you read or heard this week about Nevada politics/government? Filing opens Monday. Make one surprise prediction of who does/doesn't file? What is most and least likely to be true in five years: Dean Heller will be a U.S. senator/Michael McDonald will be chairman of the state GOP/A Goodman will be mayor of Las Vegas/Harry Reid will still have influence in Nevada Good stuff from the insiders,...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you read this week about Nevada politics? This mean anything for the campaign? https://thenevadaindependent.com/article/democratic-attorney-general-candidate-helped-amend-bill-that-could-benefit-trial-attorneys-including-his-current-employer Brent Jones vs. Michael Roberson? Will that happen? Does it matter? Insiders mostly think Ford’s favor for the trial lawyers could be problematic. But it’s...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Your reaction to the Rob Roy interview (there will be more Sunday if you want to wait)? And how epic will the battle with NVE be? 3. What's the most interesting thing you read this week about Nevada politics/policy and why? 4. Odds of any gun control measure ever passing in Nevada? Strong reactions, pro and con and mixed, to Rob Roy. Cynicism on gun control, as to be expected, but some real gems on stuff...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Your thoughts on Steve Wynn's departure and what comes next? 3. Your reaction to some things this week: Adam Laxalt saying he can't comment on the Wynn story because he is counsel to the GCB; Steve Sisolak's promise to donate his salary until education turns around; NV Energy's $30 million campaign to defeat ECI; and the John Lee/Ryann Juden vs. Qiong Liu developments. Not much love at all for the Laxalt...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week?2. What do you think comes of the GCB probe of Wynn? 3. Anything jump out at you in the new federal money reports?https://thenevadaindependent.com/article/fresh-round-of-fundraising-reports-shed-light-on-competitive-nevada-house-senate-races Some very thoughtful stuff from the insiders on GCB and Wynn. Worth a read. And: ►This is really smart – and a bit worrisome: There really is no way to predict the outcome. Does...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Theories on Barlow resignation/guilty plea: This is it? First domino? She's almost been forgotten amid all the noise around Heller. Rate Catherine Cortez Masto's first year. The DMV can't police a contract. The mentally ill are living in Third World conditions. The state can't seem to do big or small things well sometimes. Is this because of: underfunding, hiring bad people or something else? AND: Thoughts on the...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Cresent Hardy is in. Horsford will be soon. Handicap that race now, and will there be a real Dem primary? 3. Anything jump out at you from the campaign contributions so far? 4. What else you seeing out there? Speak up! Only one insider picked Spearman in an upset, but I think this could be a crazy year in Nevada. Lots of good stuff below: ►From a GOP lobbyist: Adam Laxalt has been around too little to be...
