Reid: Tarkanian win would embarrass the state because he will have to file bankruptcy
Those were among the gems today as the Democrats brought out the heavy artillery to try to boost state Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford's chances in the new congressional district. The Democrats got what they wanted -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid unplugged and plenty of media coverage, including this post from Sun Political Editor Anjeanette Damon about Reid vs. Danny Tarkanian.
Sandoval embraces Heller on TV
And it's so, so beautiful to watch. But I wonder: Who wins a game of one-on-one between these two hoopsters? Maybe we can trust Heller, but he throws elbows. Not sure Gov. Sunny does, from what I recall.
FDIC to Tark in court filing: Your arguments are nonsense, so pay up
That's the gist of an FDIC motion filed today, answering Danny Tarkanian's attempt to put off paying a $17 million judgment or at least post a bond. The language is savage. It says Tarkanian's arguments are not on point, miss the point and are irrelevant. It's a thorough evisceration -- and it is linked here.
Democrats now sure to have more than 90,000-voter lead statewide
On the day before the registration deadline, Nevada Democrats are poised to go past the 90,000 mark in their ever-extending lead over Republicans.

"Newspaper," in zeal to pretend it had story on its own, fabricates source of information
To paraphrase Poe, the thousand injuries of the "newspaper" I have borne as best I could. The stolen stories. The failure to give credit. The purposeful slights, flouting basic courtesy, conventions and ethics.
Democrats closing with Heck's "pyramid scheme" to try to win race for Oceguera
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is up with its second ad using supposedly credible sources to pound Rep. Joe Heck on his infamous "pyramid scheme" comment about Soical Security. So Oceguera is trying to push women away from Heck with his ads and the national Democrats are going for seniors. Could it work? Maybe.

Heller has $1 million more on hand than Berkley in U.S. Senate race
The third-quarter numbers: Sen. Dean Heller: $1.9 raised, $1.9 on hand Rep. Shelley Berkley: $1.65 raised, $925,000 on hand So Berkley has spent a lot more than Heller to try to keep the race close (mission accomplished) and compete with all of that outside money.

A few words about all of these polls on the presidential race in Nevada: Don’t believe them. Sound familiar? Yes, I was telling you the same thing two years ago when every poll (almost) showed Sharron Angle would be the next U.S. senator from Nevada. That didn’t happen, and all of those polls were wrong for different reasons, which eventually comes down to the same reason:
