Governing: Sandoval "not currently vulnerable"
In an assessment of the 2014 outlook for chief executives, Governing magazine finds 22 of 38 "not currently vulnerable." Among those is our own Gov. Sunny, with this assessment from reporter Lou Jacobson:
Caption contest: Harry Heller in their yarmulkes
So the picture below is of Nevada's two senators taking part in a Chanukah celebration in Washington, DC. The photo just cries out for a caption. Please help! The comments await. A couple of suggestions from one wag: "Harry - I did this with Sheldon last night" "Harry - I bet you really miss Shelley right about now. Shalom!"
Mo and Mario meet in DC
Mo Denis, who will be leading the Nevada Senate in less than two months, and his first cousin, Marco Rubio, who may be the de facto minority leader of the U.S. Senate next year, met today in the latter's DC office. Maybe Denis gave Rubio advice on how to deal with hair loss.
Heller's "evolution" on same-day registration intact
Dean Heller 1.0 was this anti-Establishment secretary of state, proposing what he called "Election Day registration" to increase voter participation. Dean Heller 2.0 was the super-conseravtive congressman and appointed U.S. senator, whose spokesman said ugly partisan politics prompted a Heller evolution that changed his position to opposing same-day registration. Dean Heller 3.0 is the newly minted full-term senator, who is considering tax increases and immigration reform, but not....same-day registration.
Reid on Miller's voter ID plan: Haven't looked, but don't want to curtail voting
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wouldn't take a specific position on fellow Democrat and Secretary of State Ross Miller's voter ID (visual verification!) plan, but he did sound a word of caution -- or so it sounded to me.
Medicaid expansion scorecard: So far, it's NPRI vs. everyone else
In the wake of Gov. Brian Sandoval's decision to expand Medicaid, the praise has flowed and the brickbats are few. Gov. Sunny tried to head off any criticism from the right with his announcment headline: "Governor Brian Sandoval today announced he will include 78,000 additional people in Nevada’s Medicaid Program and decrease the Modified Business Tax for Nevada businesses"
Today's caption contest: Reid and Heller at Judiciary hearing
The senators were there for the confirmation hearing for Andrew Gordon. The picture comes courtesy of the Stephens DC bureau's Peter Urban. Mine: "Dean Heller reacts when Harry Reid says, 'So can we get Elissa Cadish done next?'" Leave your captions in the comments.
Sixty years later, right-to-work lives on in Nevada as labor thrives
On the same day that thousands protested the end of labor as we know it in Michigan, the largest, thriving union in a right-to-work state celebrated the ascendancy of its first female and Hispanic leader.
Treasurer Marshall enters secretary of state's race with big money event in Las Vegas
Treasurer Kate Marshall, trying to get the jump on the field and surely thrilling donors exhausted from Campaign '12, is holding a fundraiser next week in Las Vegas for her nascent campaign for secreatary of state. The invite, attached here, has quite the host committee, showing the aggressive tresaurer made sure to make a lot of calls before sending this out. Politicians, lobbyists and gamers -- oh my. Labor folks, too. Enviros. Both ends of the state. Message sent.
Judge's order: Assemblyman is "not an actual resident" of district he represents
I have finally obtained the order filed late last week in the residency case of Andrew Martin, the assemblyman elected a day after Judge Rob Bare said he was ineligible to run. Bare's order, attached here, is not as explicit, referring only to Martin's lack of residency in Assembly District 9 and not declaring him ineligible to be on the ballot. (That's not what the judge could do, only what he chose to say.)
