President Obama is stretching his lead to 9 percentage points in Nevada and Rep. Shelley Berkley is up 4 over Sen. Dean Heller in a new Public Policy Polling survey taken for the League of Conservation Voters. The survey, which you can see below and was taken last week of 501 likley voters, shows Obama up 52-43 and Berkley up 48-44. Those numbers are even greater for the president than other public polls and Berkley's lead will come as a surprise considering other results. Republicans are sure...
Three sources have now confirmed that Mitt Romney raised $2 million at his Red Rock Resort fundraiser Friday in Las Vegas. The event, which included $2,500 to $25,000 donor levels, was the second $2 million payday for Romney in Vegas. The first was at Donald Trump's place in May. So even if Romney loses the state, it's been good to him -- add the $4 million to whatever Sheldon Adelson has donated under cover of a c4.
Maybe he needs to blow some cash in Vegas and get some R & R before the big Denver debate a week from Wednesday. Whatever the reason, President Obama is coming to Las Vegas on Sunday, according to an email from Obama For America's Nevada political director, Mariela Hernandez: I hope this email finds you well. I want to let you know that on Sunday September 30, the President will travel to the Las Vegas area for a campaign event. We ask that you please hold on making any public statements...
The Democrats have extended their registration lead to about 65,000 voters over the Republicans, continuing an inexorable stretching of a lead that could make the difference in November in critical races. To put this in perspective, the Democrats had lost so much of their lead -- once at 100,000-plus statewide in the halcyon days of 2008 -- that it was down to 37,000 voters in January. It now appears the Democrats may double that lead by the time registration closes in three weeks. These...
There have been a lot of pieces written recently about the disconnect between Nevada’s terrible economy and President Obama’s lead in the polls here. Mark Barabak of the Los Angeles Times tackled the conundrum over the weekend and also wrote a a piece about the Culinary union getting involved in the election after months of slumbering. The two stories are connected. The reason that Mitt Romney can’t gain traction in this state, besides his inept messaging, is that the Democrats and their...
Good morning, everyone. After last night’s Midbar Kodesh Temple forum, I’d like to say I have my faith restored in the quality of candidates running and the political process. While there were a few surprisingly good legislative hopefuls, mostly I am left with a familiar question: Why do people run for office and not have any basic positions on basic questions? I know: I sound like a naïve, cub reporter. But if I ever stop being astounded/incensed by such behavior, I might as well stop doing...
Temple forum roundup: Oceguera can't find any presidential misstep, Heck breaks with Romney and Berkley won't answer debt question
It went more than two and a half hours, with many candidates for legislative offices dodging basic questions and Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak making people wonder why Barry Herr is running against him (Herr all but endorsed the incumbent). But when the Midbar Kodesh Temple candidates night got to the federal races, there was real news. Well, sort of. A quick roundup: ----I asked Speaker John Oceguera if he could name one thing the president had done that disappointed him. He paused...
The L.A. Times' Mark Z. Barabak, who may know as much about this state as any national reporter, sojourned in Reno recently and came away with some thoughts about the paradox of the depressed economy and the depressed Mitt Romney vote: ---"The economy and its lackluster performance is the overriding issue this election: Countless polls and other voter surveys have made that abundantly clear. But for many there is no straight line from disappointment on that front to a vote for Romney or,...
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...
