WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you read or heard about NV politics this week? Who is the player to watch during the 2019 session no one is talking about? Is there an issue that hasn't been talked about it a lot that could become a big one? Some contrarian views on secret plutonium, great names (mostly) for players to watch and some Indy genuflection (the team has earned it). ►Love these: Everything is very quiet right now,...
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? Were you surprised at anything Steve Sisolak said at IndyTalks? Do you see any fissures already developing inside the Democratic caucuses? Do you expect some to form and along what fault lines? Will Ruben file? Most of my insiders think Ruben will file, unless the SOS says he can’t convert his fed money (I hear an opinion is being worked on) or...
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? Let loose on the State of the State and the budget: What are your thoughts? Write short, write long, go off on any tangents you want. Policy and politics. Good, bad and ugly. Generally favorable reviews for the SOTS speech, lots of nuance from the insiders (I continue to be amused by the comments about Michelle White -- Steve Sisolak loves her...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week Most interesting thing you read or heard this week? Thoughts on Sisolak appointments so far? Who is the person in the Legislature no one is talking about but is one to watch? Lots of praise from the insiders for the Sisolak appointments (especially Sandra Morgan) and lots of opprobrium for NV Energy suing the PUC. Good stuff: ►And away we go! It sounds like a broken record, but what are the odds that the Democrats...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? What's the most interesting thing you read or heard about Nevada politics this week? Anything jump out at you in the committee assignments? Any other pre-session thoughts? Anything percolating out there in the caucuses I need to know? Happy 2019, all. Building up the team of insiders for the session, so a glimpse from some today at the upcoming session and more. Some gems, as always: ►So smart: The significant...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: Sporadic insider response this week, as I should have expected. I think everyone – including moi – has had enough. I’ll publish what I have from the intrepid ones, but I will take time off from premium content until next month sometime to begin to preview the Legislature. I asked this: This week, if you have time, give me your final thoughts on the campaign season -- the pivotal points, what it means going forward, give out awards if you have any. ...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: Reactions to the election results. You have mine; now some great stuff from my insiders. Some say Nevada is not a blue state. Here’s why they are wrong, as some top GOP officials now realize: You can’t beat the Vegas edge. It’s a big urban melting pot and will always provide a cushion, even after the Lambe lies down on the Strip…. ►Most prescient line: The problem now..... too many Democrats! The infighting has begun. ►Priceless and so true: Just one...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: PREDICTIONS Mine are on The Indy site. Go there if you haven’t seen them yet. I will say that two very smart data guys (not partisans) told me this morning I was too conservative in my margins ( I usually am) and that the tide has really turned toward the Dems. Maybe. If so, then the Dems may get supermajorities in both houses. I can tell you that my insiders are very divided on the major races, as you will see: WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week:...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you have read or heard about Nevada politics this week? You think Trump, Obama or Biden make any difference here? Best guess on what Brian Sandoval will be doing a year from now. Biggest news today is first day of early voting. You know where to find that info. Limited response from insiders this week, but here’s what they said: ►Ha! My prediction is you will hear the names "Bundy" and "Hansen...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you have read or heard about Nevada politics this week? Who has been the best candidate so far this cycle? The worst? Best campaign so far this cycle? Worst? So interesting to see the differing views of the insiders on candidates (Laxalt and Rosen, especially). Electoral Ambien, though! That is so….good. ►Amazing: Best Campaign: No on 3. They are on the wrong side of the issue and have a client...
