  • VIDEO: Jacky Rosen Ducks Four Times On Hillary Clinton’s Honesty

    10/24/2016 12:05:54 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 3 replies ^ | Oct 20, 2016
    No one has ever accused Nevada’s top political journalist Jon Ralston of giving up on a question. Even a cursory look at Ralston’s interview with Jacky Rosen, the Democrat running in Nevada’s third congressional district, shows exactly that. Democrats left and right have been dodging questions about whether they believe Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy this entire year. Rosen was just the latest Democrat to be caught up by this question. Ralston pressed Rosen four times on whether issues like her email scandal have caused Rosen to question Clinton’s honesty. Rosen could only duck and dodge. At one point...

    Donald Trump picked up his first major newspaper endorsement of the November election over the weekend when the Las Vegas Review-Journal became one of the few to back the Republican nominee. “These are turbulent times,” the newspaper, which is owned by Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson, said in an editorial. “More and more Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation.

    The Las Vegas Review-Journal endorsed Trump on Saturday. It's the biggest local paper so far to declare support for the GOP nominee. In its endorsement, the Review-Journal specifically called out a growing frustration with today's politicians, saying Trump would be quote "a source of disruption and discomfort to the privileged, back-scratching political elites."

    These are turbulent times. More and more Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation.

The discontent isn’t confined by ideology or political philosophy.

    Republican Donald Trump will likely win the third presidential debate on Wednesday evening at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The question is whether his victory will matter enough to shift the polls, after so much damage has been done by recent accusations of sexual impropriety, which were delivered in carefully coordinated media attacks in the aftermath of the first debate on Sep. 26. Trump will likely benefit from an “October surprise” of his own — namely, the release of videos by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas that show high-level Democratic political consultants taking credit for inciting violence at Trump rallies...

Election Day 2014 produced nine seats, but could have been 11 if not for the intense infighting in Republican primaries. So, will 2016 turn into an epic landslide of the Democrats and...

    Nevada’s Senate race could not get much bigger. It is the only real chance Republicans have to flip a Democratic seat. The outcome could seal control of the Senate. For those who have followed the intrigue of recent campaign cycles, it is riveting for another reason. The battle to choose a successor to Senator Harry Reid, the retiring Democratic leader, is pitting Mr. Reid and his home-state political operation against his archenemies, Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire industrialist brothers whom Mr. Reid has spent the past few years denouncing as the avatars of dark-money politics. This is...

    Last week, I noted that Nevada polling for Donald Trump painted a brighter picture for Republicans than national numbers suggested. The missteps that drove Trump’s numbers down nationwide didn’t seem to have impacted his standing in Nevada at all, and it appeared Hillary Clinton could lose a state Barack Obama won easily twice. Yesterday, Jon Ralston offered an in-depth look into the state of the race for Politico, as well as the fight to fill Harry Reid’s soon-to-be-vacant seat in the Senate. Ralston offered Republicans more good news than they’ve heard in a while, although it may not last: In...

    Thank you, Reno! It’s great to be back in Nevada…My original plan for this visit was to focus on our agenda to help small businesses and entrepreneurs. This week we proposed new steps to cut red tape and taxes, and make it easier for small businesses to get the credit they need to grow and hire.

    Reno, Nevada (CNN) Donald Trump continues to trail in key swing states, but that has not been the case in Nevada, a state that helped him clinch the Republican nomination. Hillary Clinton arrives Thursday to campaign in this battleground state that Barack Obama easily carried twice as both public and internal campaign polls show a dead heat here. Trump's resilience in Nevada is surprising considering Clinton's many advantages here: her access to the strong organizational muscle of labor, a growing Latino population that has chafed at Trump's tone on immigration, and Obama's successes, which laid the groundwork for her run.
