Conservation league reminding voters about lawmakers, public lands and Bundy
The Nevada Conservation League is starting early in four Assembly districts targeted by Democrats, reminding voters of GOP legislators and their policies on public lands and support for outlaw rancher Cliven Bundy. The pieces below target Michele Fiore, Brent Jones, John Moore and Vicki Dooling.
McDonald was paid $16,000 of tax money for this?
After state GOP Chairman Michael McDonald was hired by his pal, state Treasurer Dan Schwartz for a six-figure job and then forced out, I wondered what he had done to earn $16,000 before his ouster.
SEIU targets Nevada as part of national campaign
On the eve of the one-year anniversary of President Obama's executive action on immigration, SEIU and iAmerica Action, an immigrant rights organization, are launching a national campaign, with customized digital ads in Nevada. The campaign's national TV spot and Nevada digital ad (similar ones are running in Colorado, Florida and Texas) is below, targeting the GOP presidential candidates. Local groups also are having an event in front of Rep. Joe Heck's office on Friday with activists and Assemblyman Nelson Araujo.
Poll: Trump, Clinton way ahead in Nevada
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are way ahead in a new poll conducted for Morning Consult of registered voters in Nevada. This should be taken with a grain of salt because caucusgoers and registered voters are much different universes. And Nevada is very hard to poll, especially for low-turnout caucuses and especially on the GOP side. Those caveats in mind, the survey is very similar to one done by CNN a month ago that showed both Trump and Clinton with huge leads.
Ladies and gentlemen of CD4, meet Susie Lee
Democrat Susie Lee has raised much more than anyone else in that crowded Congressional District Four primary, so she has decided to spend some of it. Lee, who has raised $650,000 ($100,000 of her own), dropped a huge mailer this week to introduce her relaively unknown self to primary voters and activists. The piece, which you can see below, is pretty much boiler-plate stuff -- same old issues and vague promises, rainbow of faces, happy family. But it's so large (8X10 trifold) that voters won't miss it in their mailboxes.
As Jim Carrey once said: Loooooooser
All Chuck Muth does is abuse the legal process, try to raise money for his "causes," support puppets (Michael McDonald, Michele Fiore) and, yes, lose. It's time he was ignored. (And I should follow my own advice.)
Seaman attacks Nelson in SD6 primary battle
Ah, Victoria Seaman, you do entertain, if nothing else.
Sandoval takes stand in key state Senate primary; so does LG, many others
Gov. Brian Sandoval has decided to endorse Assemblyman Erv Nelson against Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman in a pivotal state Senate primary, perhaps signaling he is willing to be active in legislative campaigns to protect those who voted for his tax/education plan.
Laxalt to use presidential debate as vehicle to raise money, host Venetian party
Attorney General Adam Laxalt, who this summer hosted a successful presidential forum in Northern Nevada, will use the occasion of the Dec. 15 debate at The Venetian to raise money and his profile. Check it out:
NV progressive activist on Hillary's NH immigration comments: Disappointing
In New Hampshire this week, Hillary Clinton referred to undocumented immigrants as "illegal," pointed to her support for a border fence and mentioned the impossible logistics of rounding up 11 million people, a stark contrast to the overt pitch to DREAMers and the Hispanic vote she has made in Nevada.
