    Nevada Gov.-elect Steve Sisolak (D) is pushing to rename a Las Vegas airport after former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who is battling pancreatic cancer. Lawmakers in Nevada have been aiming to rename the McCarran International Airport after Reid, citing his prominence in the state's political history, as well as former Sen. Patrick McCarran's problematic legacy. McCarran was an avowed fascist and he has been accused of espousing racist and anti-Semitic ideals. Sisolak said during a meeting on Tuesday that he intends to name the McCarren International Airport after Reid, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. He also said...

    A tracker tasked with following Nevada Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt was arrested Tuesday for assaulting the candidate’s female campaign manager following a campaign event in Las Vegas. Mike Stark, a veteran tracker for David Brock’s American Bridge 21st Century super PAC, forced his way into a room where Laxalt, the Nevada attorney general, was meeting with campaign manager Kristin Davidson and two other staffers. “I could not move,” Davidson said in her statement to police, obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. “Stark grabbed my right arm, twisted it behind my back, squeezed it very hard, and every time I...

    The Democratic operative arrested and charged with battery against the female campaign manager for Nevada gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt was employed at the George Soros-funded American Bridge for months, despite a reputation on Capitol Hill for what sources described as “hostile” tactics. Wilfred M. Stark III, who goes by Mike, was arrested Tuesday evening in Las Vegas, after Laxalt campaign manager Kristin Davison accused him of grabbing and yanking her arm and refusing to let go. Las Vegas City Marshals arrested Stark, who was later released. Stark, who was a reporter for American Bridge 21st Century, was fired Wednesday night...

The group’s largest donor is liberal billionaire George Soros, who contributed more than $2 million between 2015 and 2016. Soros is still...

    The name is a big plus. The number of hispanics in Nevada is a big negative. By not running for the senate where a loss would be political suicide he's running for a statewide office where even the Democrats prefer adults. A good set up for the future. Can Nevada be saved? Only if we keep the Senate seat with either Tark or Heller. I would leave Heller in Trumps hands.

    An internal poll from Republican Adam Laxalt’s gubernatorial campaign shows him well in front of primary opponent Treasurer Dan Schwartz, by a margin of 66 percent to 7 percent. The poll showed Laxalt ahead but in a tighter race for the general election against both major Democratic candidates. It had Laxalt up six points on Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak, by a percent margin of 44-38, and ahead of Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani by a percent margin of 45-34. Laxalt, Nevada’s attorney general, has been endorsed by Vice President Mike Pence and a slew of Republican governors including Arizona’s...
