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? Was it smart strategy for Steve Sisolak to come out against the water grab? Does it mean anything in the race? Best and worst ads so far? Any thoughts at all on RGJ poll?   Usual wisdom from the insiders. To wit: ►Best answer of the week on best and worst ads: I watch Netflix.  ►Yep: Will be interesting to see what candidates show up for the...
Welcome to the Weekly Report This week’s questions:   Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing of the week? You are in gov and U.S. Senate debates: What would you ask? Most impressive first-time candidates?   Some savage (those debate questions!) and cynical (everything else) this week:   ►Through the looking glass: What world am I living in?  Donald Trump’s presidential staff works against his agenda, there’s talk of a legislator bringing a bus full of his prostitutes to use...
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? Early voting begins seven weeks from Friday: Where are we? What's new? Any pithy observations on major races, Legislature, anything? Relatively meager response, as I feared on this Labor Day weekend. But what came in was, as usual, excellent insight. For what it’s worth, my takes:   Sisolak is on TV now, but he took a long time to reload. If it’s...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you heard or read about Nevada politics this week? Odds Sandoval relents and endorses Laxalt, and why?  For fun: What do the following people do if they lose? Laxalt, Heller, Roberson, Rosen, Sisolak.   Some great, funny, brutal stuff from my insiders on what the losers will do; consensus that at most Sandoval does a tepid endorsement of Laxalt. My take: He could do a “I support the GOP ticket”...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week:   Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you read/heard this week in Nevada politics/government? Thoughts on the RGJ poll? Thoughts on the Aaron Ford revelations? How damaging on a scale from flesh wound to fatal?   Insiders believe (as do I) that it’s inconceivable Ford did not get out in front of these revelations easily available to an oppo researcher. Some think (and it’s hard to argue) that he may need a blue wave to win. Some...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Most interesting thing you read or heard about Nevada politics this week? 3. Does the Guinn Center study change anything on Q3? 4. Who is the person a politician should least want mad at him or her in Nevada? Who are the next two? Praise for that "spineless senator" ad, skepticism the Guinn Center report will affect much (I think it helps the NO side a lot more.) and Sheldon name-checked as person to be feared...
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? Your take on the Sisolak-Vermillion-Laxalt-Gentile letter story? Good for Sisolak because sends message or good for Laxalt because raises the issue? Or neither? Your take and feel for that race right now. Somewhat anemic response from the insiders this week -- I guess insiders take vacations, too! But some good stuff nevefrtheless. MOST...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you read or heard this week? SCOTUS: Any thoughts on impact on 2018 elections here? Too early to tell? Or not? Your thoughts on Dennis Hof: Does he chew up enough scenery to be a problem for the GOP this year here? Or does it subside? Hof will be a problem, my insiders, think, but for everyone. (I agree). Too early on SCOTUS – I still think edge is to the Dems. Oh, and by the way, you are among...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you have read or heard this week? If you saved up reactions from the primary, let me hear them. Does the family separation/detention issue stick until the general, and who does it help/hurt here? Rank the chances of these happening in November: Dems get supermajorities in both houses; Ryan Bundy gets 5 percent of the vote; Dems win more than half of constitutional offices; Danny Tarkanian wins...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week:   All about predictions and the two usual questions.   My insiders actually are split on the gov’s race. I actually understand it. Very difficult to read, could go either way despite Steve Sisolak’s financial, structural advantages. One way to look at it: He brought in marquee national talent and nuked Chris Giunchigliani, so he should win. Another way: If he doesn’t, what a waste of money and GOP confidence will grow.   And: ►Scathing: The estrogen-on-...
