Day 2, Sunday, May 29:
Significant dropoff on Sunday as just under 4,000 people voted in Clark County -- that's 2,000 fewer than Saturday. FIXED TO ADD MAIL TO THESE NUMBERS: Total turnout is now 9,930, or a little more than 1 percent. With mail (nothing new on Sunday), 14,113 -- that's 1.6 percent. Breakdown: 7,434 Democrats (1.9 percent turnout), 5,286 Republicans (1.9 percent turnout).
By this time in 2014, only 6,500 had voted (the second day pace -- 2,500 then -- also is well ahead of last cycle). In 2012, 7,000 had voted.
When Maddy Ralston came into this world almost 21 years ago, it was love at first sight.
I cradled her in my arms, my adopted miracle, and couldn’t stop crying. She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.
A news release came out Tuesday afternoon giving voters a guide to who the small-minded, intolerant, no-solution political arsonists are that Republicans should oppose in the primary.
The release didn't say that explicitly, but the language is very clear: These are people with no business in public office. Rarely is a voter guide provided that tells voters who to oppose, but this is it. Very helpful of them to lump the Know-Nothings together:
A Super PAC trying to help Rep. Joe Heck defeat the woman who would be the first Latina ever elected to the U.S. Senate is trying to peel off Hispanic voters with a new radio ad.
Irate Berne Sanders supporters did not just leave threatening voicemails and texts for state Democratic Party Chairwoman Roberta Lange but also launched an assault on the businesses she oversees, the owner says.
The state Democratic Party has filed a stinging complaint with national Democrats over the "explosive situation" and "paranoid fantasy of fraud and delegate theft" created by Bernie Sanders supporters at Saturday's state convention, warning it could be a harbinger of what's to come in Philadelphia in July.
One caller suggested she would be hung or burned. (He brilliantly left a callback number.)
Another suggested she is a "corrupt b--tch."
Still another said it will come "back to bite you in the ass."
This is what State Democratic Party Chairwoman Roberta Lange has been subjected to since Bernie Sanders supporters became incensed at Saturday's state convention.
I have posted three of the vociemails here -- there are more to come. They are incredible. Warning: Language.
On the eve of the Nevada Democratic Convention in Las Vegas, Friday the 13th as the calendar would have it, Bernie Sanders issued a news release asking for good fortune on that traditionally unlucky day.
