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...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Your take on the NLV soap opera? 3. Why would Adam Laxalt release a poll showing him 50 points ahead of Dan Schwartz? Usually this kind of thing is done to hurt a foe's fundraising but Schwartz wasn't going to get any money anyhow. So: A. The poll is bullshit. B. He is afraid of Schwartz. C. His campaign is inept. 4. Craziest scenario, ranked: A. Kihuen files B. Tark decides to run for LG C. Heller doesn't file D...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Who is the strongest/weakest Democratic candidate in CD4? 3. Does the Trump-Bannon feud affect Heller-Tark? Or nothingburger? 4. Most damaging issues in gov's race -- rank them: Stadium/Adelson/personal issues/voting records The insiders are not sanguine about Pat Spearman’s chances, don’t think Trump-Bannon will have much impact, believe Dean Heller was weak on pot, saw Nelson Araujo as really hurting himself...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. All I asked for this week was a list of top political stories and predictions for ’18. A few dedicated insiders heeded the call on a holiday weekend. Some trenchant and hilarious stuff. Enjoy their musings, and have a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year. TOP STORIES 1. 1 October. Tragically, from any aspect it’s the top story of 2017. The amazing response from the Las Vegas community ,police, fire and AMR, an outpouring of support from locals, empathy and...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Your honest assessment of our Speaking Up package on Friday. Will it change anything? What change would work? 3. Were we all wrong -- is Ruben going to survive? Some good stiff from the insiders on our sexual misconduct piece, and most still think Kihuen is dead. ►A common sentiment: Ruben, Ruben, Ruben. What the hell are you doing? Step down and end this. The longer he stays in his seat, the better the chances...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: Your thoughts on Kihuen: Is he dead? Does he resign? Not run? Who gets in on both sides if there is a special election? Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? IBA and Joiner not running bring the total leaving the Assembly close to double digits -- and it will get there. Thoughts on their leaving? This happens every cycle. Is this a good thing or a bad thing -- all the turnover every cycle? And is it time to consider a full-time Legislature? How much impact...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Will Brian Sandoval go down in history as one of the state's greatest governors? Why or why not? What will he be doing two years from now? 3. Someone said this week John Ensign is planning a comeback. Is this the most insane thing you have ever heard? If not, can you name something you have heard recently that is more insane about Nevada politics? 4. Most likely upset of 2018 in order: Tark becomes...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Thoughts on the Woodhouse recall-- if it qualifies, as seems possible, can she win? 3. Duncan is in -- your take on Duncan-Ford? 4. The sanctuary cities ballot initiative was filed this week. Odds of it passing? Insiders are split on if Woodhouse survives, but most of them are disgusted with the process, no matter their political affiliations. My take: It could go either way – the 5 percent sample...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1. Smartest and dumbest moves of the week? 2. With the Weinstein stories and other state capitals talking about rampant sexual harassment, how bad is the atmosphere in Carson City? Is it a rampant problem, Manendo-isolated, what? I find it ironic so many high-ranking women are there over the last few sessions, but the place is toxic, no? Thoughts -- longer the better. 3. The Laxalt announcement road show begins next week. Thoughts? Some...
Welcome to The Weekly Report. This week: 1 Smartest and dumbest moves of the week? 2. Chris G. is in for governor. Two questions: A. Can you envision a scenario in which she could win? B. Do you think Sisolak & Co. can keep her from filing, and how? 3. Rank in order of probability and why: Dems federal lawsuit against recalls succeeds Nevada gets Amazon HQ2 House and Senate pass Yucca bill, Trump signs Dean Heller doesn't run 4. Could Victoria Seaman beat Scott Hammond in CD3? Great stuff...
