Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week 2. Thoughts on what happened Sunday and the aftermath. Be as short or as long as you want. Talk about any aspect (s) you want -- political reaction, the future of Vegas, the insanity of it all…   Somber edition. Some good thoughts from some smart people.   ►Strong: Since they all want to seek out the microphone, let’s look at what they have done or can do:   The right wing darling, Justice Scalia, opined in the...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1.   Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2.   Adam Laxalt and Chris G. get into the gov's race on Monday. What should we watch for? 3.   Who is the most qualified person in Nevada to be governor and why? 4.   I sense the Dems are nervous about the recalls qualifying. Should they be? And if they do, what is the likely outcome?   Big news from one of my insiders is that recallers already boasting they have the signatures. Others say they think they will...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1.   Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2.   Sandoval went hard after Heller's bill. What does it mean? Anyone think there is any chance Heller doesn't run? 3.   Anderson/Hill/Wheeler: Thoughts?   Majority think Heller will run, but mixed reviews on Wheeler – some recognize what few see (he’s pretty savvy) but most think his pro-slavery/anti-Vegas comments will be spun against him to hurt the caucus image and fundraising. On Heller, this is right on:  ...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1.   Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2.   Kate Marshall vs. Michael Roberson. Aaron Ford vs. Wes Duncan. Your thoughts? 3.   Laxalt-Roberson-Cegavske-Duncan-Beers-Knecht vs. Sisolak (Chris G?)-Marshall-Arajuo-Ford-?-? How are things shaping up? Which ticket do you like? Fill in the blanks, too, if you can. 4.   Are the fundamentals of the Nevada economy sound? Why or why not? (Thought I'd give you one non-political one this week.)   Smart stuff, as...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Charting voter registration 2. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 3. Schwartz is in. Does he have a chance? Why or why not? 4. My theory is that Heller/Laxalt/Roberson are going to use sanctuary cities, etc. to drive up the rural and white vote to win. Am I nuts? Could it work? 5. Has Pat Skorkowsky been a good supe? Or is the job just impossible? Nobody thinks Schwartz has much of a chance, mixed reaction to reffectiveness of "snactuary cities"...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1.    Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2.    How much is Michael Roberson like Harry Reid? 3.    Your thoughts on Hutch and the recalls: Is this who he really is, the nice guy was a mask? 4.    Rank from most likely to least likely: All three recalls fail/All three recalls succeed/Some kind of split decision 5.    Ross Miller for LG? The insiders came to play as always: Fascinating responses to my questions about Roberson and Reid; generally gentle on...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1.    Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2.    Tark-Heller. Thoughts? 3.    Woodhouse recall. Thoughts? 4.    Beers for treasurer. Thought   My insiders generally don’t think much of Tark’s chances, but it is early and miles to go before we vote. General disdain and sadness for the recalls from insiders of both parties. Cosnensus Beers can win. ►Right on: I'm a Republican and I can tell you this recall is silly and futile.  Honest to God when will the...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1.   Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2.   Ruben vs. Stavros? Victoria for CD3? Ford vs. Duncan? Dems vs. Cegavske? Roberson vs…..no one? Thoughts? 3.   Rank most to least likely: Patty Farley switches to Dem and runs again/Titus runs for Senate/Schwartz decides to run for LG/Tark for Senate   Interesting stuff from the insiders: A real split on if Titus will run. I still say no, but several think she is in. Ford vs. Duncan is very intriguing. And...
This week: 1.    Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2.    General thoughts on health care debate this week -- who does it help and who does it hurt?

Rank them: Laxalt, Schwartz, Sisolak, Chris G., Dina, Jacky Rosen 4.    Who is a candidate for higher office not talked about as a candidate for higher office who could be a good candidate for higher...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1.    Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2.    Rank from most likely to least likely and explain why: Chris G. runs/Dina Titus runs/Dean Heller gets a serious primary/Dan Schwartz runs 3.    Who is the best elected official no one really talks about? 4.    Why do the Senate Democrats, who refused to endorse him, hate James Ohrenschall? So the consensus from the insiders: Chris and Dan run, Dina probably (some dissenters) does not and Heller will get a...
