In a decision that came down Friday, and was first reported by Vegas, Inc's Steve Green, a judge shredded a case brought by those slot parlors that have fought against a Clark County ordinance. Judge Kent Dawson thoroughly rejected the various claims made by Dotty's, inlcuding due process and equal protection. If you are interested in this ongoing political and legal saga, I have posted the decision here.
Moderator: “Good evening and welcome to the first U.S. Senate debate between Senator Dean Heller and Congresswoman Shelley Berkley.” Man shouts from audience: “Go get him, Shelley! I want him gone.” Moderator: “Senator Reid, you really must try to control yourself. My first question goes to the congresswoman: Senator Heller says you are the most unethical and corrupt person he has ever met. Your reaction?” Berkley: “I have never done anything that wasn’t motivated by my desire to make my...
Rep. Shelley Berkley will answer questions tonight at a candidates forum that also will include both candidates for a competitive congressional seat -- Rep. Joe Heck and Speaker John Oceguera. Sen. Dean Heller is not attending for what his campaign says are personal reasons. The forum begins at 6:30 and includes a raft of down-ticket races (Assembly, state Senate) before the major contests come into focus. The venue is the Midbar Kodesh Temple at 1940 Paseo Verde Pkwy in Henderson. Oh, and the...

Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform is here in Nevada, trying to affect the U.S. Senate race with a mail campaign. You can download the piece here that attacks Rep. Shelley Berkley. It's a combination of ethics and "debt, spending and job loss." (She was not actually named one of "the most corrupt members of Congress." Only "Dishonorable Mention." But.....)
Folks, I will try as often as I can to post media on this blog, so you can see what is happening in major -- and maybe some minor -- races. You will see attached here two pieces I received -- I am a registered non-partisan -- one from the Washoe Republican Party, which essentially is a front now as a federal PAC for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (which doesn't trust the state GOP), and one from the Democratic Party of Nevada on the presidential ticket. The mail I receive will...
Some developments in the Nevada ad wars: Crossroads GPS is filling in its order in Reno, meaning it's hitting (probably Rep. Shelley Berkley) more and earlier. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is beefing up its buy in Reno and Las Vegas (are you listening, Sen. Dean Heller?) Meanwhile, Heller is currently outspending Berkley on Spanish-language TV, I am reliably told. But I hear some union folks are coming to her rescue. And John Oceguera, the former firefighter running for Congress...
