Coming on the heels of her endorsement by Nevada DREAMers, Hillary Clinton is taking to the airwaves to make her case that she is the best choice for Hispanics with spots starring some of those same folks.
This cohort could be critical in the Feb. 20 caucus and in the general election.
After putting out a news release last month implying the utility supported a 20-year hold harmless period from new rates for rooftop solar customers and then presenting a filing that essentially argued that regulators should not do so, NV Energy has filed supplemental testimony indicating it backs the long grace period.
Tonight, the Las Vegas Review-Journal posted on its site not a story, not a brief, but this:
"Motion filed in Jacobs lawsuit against Las Vegas Sands Corp."
A headline, a short paragraph about the motion in a case about a case involving the paper's owner, Sheldon Adelson, and no elaboration or background.
A survey paid for by the solar industry indicates voters are angry about the Public Utilities Commission decision on rooftop solar and want a special session of the Legislature to reverse it.
The statewide poll, paid for by the umbrella group Bring Back Solar Alliance and conducted in late January, found:
"An open, competitive retail electric energy market" by 2023.
Filed today by broad coalition, I'm told, not ready to put themselves out there yet.
Read all about it.
In a measure of how important Hillary Clinton thinks Nevada may be -- hello, firewall -- she has increased her TV spending here, but she still lags behind Bernie Sanders.
On the GOP side, Marco Rubio's SuperPAC and his campaign have spent the most, showing how critical Nevada may be to his fortunes.
The numbers, according to an expert who tracks campaign spending, show Sanders has spent $1.7 million in Nevada compared to Clinton's $1.4 million. But Clinton has purchased more time in the last two weeks ($670,000) than Sanders ($565,000).
The Culinary union on Thursday plans to conduct a vote on its endorsement in a crowded Democratic primary for GOP Rep. Cresent Hardy's seat, and a flyer sent to members makes it clear the leadership favors state Sen. Ruben Kihuen.
Rarely have I seen a flyer that so obviously makes it clear -- look at it below. Three of the candidates have face shots while Kihuen, anointed by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, is seen....on a union picket line. And look at the description of Kihuen compared to the others -- twice as long and highlighting his union bonafides.
The fourth quarter contributions from Sheldon and Miriam Adelson to Ted Cruz made news the last few days, but they have not been exclusive.
They are still dating until they decide to unload soft money to either Marco Rubio or Cruz -- or both. I heard long ago from someone who knows that they would spread personal money around to several candidates but would wait until the race shakes out a little before unleashing the seven-figure contributions.
They made other maximum personal donations ($2,700) last year to three other candidates.
The only money that matters, after fourth-quarter reports were filed Sunday, is cash on hand. Here's what it looks like in Nevada's competiutive congressional races:
Susie Lee: $647,000
Ruben Kihuen: $373,000
John Oceguera: $204,000
Lucy Flores: $84,000
