Nashville is one of several locations in which Republicans are expressing interest. Others include Las Vegas; Orlando, Fla.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Georgia. All of the prospective sites have directly expressed interest in hosting the convention, and party officials...

    LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Hundreds of protestors in buses, cars, convertible and pickup trucks honked their horns, waved flags and held up signs saying they want Nevada back open now. On Friday, a caravan of protestors drove the Las Vegas Strip calling on Governor Sisolak to re-open the state of Nevada. "Protect those that are at risk and let the rest of us get back to the business of America," said Conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root. Root organized the protest comprised of small business owners and workers who are out of a job, and he believes Nevada can re-open...

    The powerful United Auto Workers union on Friday criticized Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman’s call to re-open casinos despite the continued risk of coronavirus, the latest labor organization to weigh in on her remarks. UAW president Rory Gamble, whose union represents casino workers in Las Vegas along with automobile workers across the United States, called on Nevada politicians to denounce Goodman at a time when states are looking at how to re-open businesses in ways that keep workers safe. “UAW Casino employees, their families and the community are not test subjects for her irresponsible theories on public health and the...

    Casino executives in Las Vegas, NV., are deliberating certain ways to keep customers and employees safe once the gambling mecca eventually opens to guests, according to a report on Wednesday. Some of the informal talks have discussed safety measures that include putting masks and gloves on dealers, in addition to re-opening facilities nearby so employees and possibly tourists could get tested for COVID-19. Las Vegas would start by re-opening small businesses around the area so locals could start working again to alleviate economic hardships, according to Bloomberg. The casinos would operate with as few as one-third of its rooms available...

    Las Vegas casinos owners may have just five months to stay afloat as they burn through up to $14.4million each a day following orders to close down operations for a month. On Tuesday March 17 Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak ordered a statewide closure of all nonessential businesses for 30 days, including casinos, bars and restaurants, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, turning Sin City into a ghost town. Casinos are now facing the dilemma of keeping workers employed, while grappling with zero income. Some operators have as little as five months before they run out of money, according to Macquarie...

    Democratic caucusgoers in Nevada stood in line for more than three hours at one early voting precinct Saturday, according to people at the front of the line. The precinct -- Palo Verde High School in Las Vegas -- had six volunteers present as of 5 p.m., ET. One volunteer, who did not want to be identified, said, "We need more." In contrast to the problems experienced by the Iowa Democratic Party with an app used for calculating votes, the issue of long lines at this one precinct stems from large turnout, and not enough volunteers to process them.

  • They All Suck: Nevada Union Refuses To Endorse A 2020 Democratic Candidate

    Days ahead of the Nevada caucuses the state’s influential culinary union decided to sit this one out. They’re not endorsing anyone. Why? Well, because right now, they all suck. And if they don’t suck, they’re peddling action items that will screw them over. It’s become nasty between the Culinary Workers Union and the Bernie Sanders campaign after the former distributed leaflets to their members about the dangers concerning Sanders’ Medicare for All proposals that will gut 150+ million private health care plans. And a lot of union members’ health care plans will be shredded by a Sanders administration. For the...

    O.J. Simpson is suing a Las Vegas hotel-casino that banned him in November 2017, alleging that unnamed employees defamed him by telling a celebrity news site he had been drunk, disruptive and unruly. Simpson, on parole in Nevada for a 2008 conviction for armed robbery and assault with a weapon, filed the lawsuit Thursday against Nevada Property 1 LLC, corporate owner of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The complaint acknowledges that Simpson, after several hours with two friends at a steakhouse and a lounge in November 2017, received a notice from a security guard as they left. It prohibited him...

    Las Vegas Police say they've arrested a 25-year-old Playboy model in connection with the death of a 71-year-old doctor whose body was discovered inside the trunk of an abandoned car earlier this month. Kelsey Nichole Turner, 25, was arrested in Stockton, California on March 21 by detectives from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and members of a Stockton FBI task force, a press release from the department said. Detectives identified Turner as a suspect after an investigation revealed evidence that connected her to the death of Thomas Burchard, a 71-year-old child psychiatrist from Salinas, California.

    What's in the news day and night? The wall. It's all anyone talks about or thinks about or debates. Have you heard? The U.S. government is partially shut down over the wall. But it's all a massive liberal scam. A Ponzi scheme. Pure fraud. Bernie Madoff couldn't come up with a better scam. Because the same liberal politicians and donors who scream about the "racism" and "immorality" and "ineffectiveness" of a wall all live behind walls. President Trump needs to buy TV infomercial time and run a 30-minute TV show in a Ross Perot fashion -- featuring aerial views of...

The game had opened and closed at 64, the highest over/under in an NFL game since at least 1986, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.
