    Harry Reid had high praise for President Trump calling him "smart" and hard to beat in a recent appearance. "I used to think that Donald Trump was not too smart. I certainly don't believe that anymore," the former Senate majority leader told David Axelrod in an interview preview that aired Friday on CNN. "I don't think he's intellectually a powerhouse, but he is basically a very, very smart man. No matter what the subject, any argument he involves himself in, it's on his terms." The 79-year-old Nevada Democrat said the Democratic presidential contenders should not be under the illusion that...
  • Iowa Republican leaders: Iowans sticking to Trump despite not canceling caucus

    The Daily Iowan ^ | September 12, 2019 | Caleb McCullough, Politics Reporter
    The Iowa Republican Party is holding onto plans to have its traditional straw poll at the caucus in February to decide the Republican nominee in the bid for the White House. Still, local party leaders maintain that the party firmly supports President Trump. Muscatine County Republican chair Fred Grunder said the party is behind Trump, but there is likely to be a small number of protest votes at the caucus in 2020. “There are some people that I think they’re just trying to make a statement more than anything else,” he said. “If there’s 500 people that are at our...

    Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski predicted Thursday that President Trump will win by a wider electoral margin next year compared to his 2016 victory. “My prediction is Donald Trump will win by a larger electoral margin than he did in the 2016 election,” Lewandowski told Hill.TV. He was also optimistic about Trump’s ability to win three states that he lost in 2016: New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Nevada. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won all three states by a slim margin. Trump received 304 electoral votes to Clinton's 227, for a 77-vote margin of victory.

    While Democrats consider more than 20 candidates hoping to become their party's nominee, the Republican National Committee is forging ahead with an August ground-game push to boost President Trump's reelection campaign in more than a dozen states. The RNC and the Trump Victory Committee launched an "Open for Business" tour last week featuring more than 30 events across 17 states to highlight the administration's economic achievements. In conjunction with the events hosted by surrogates, the committees have launched a six-figure digital ad buy targeting cities like Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, West Palm Beach, Miami and Las Vegas. The ads, which...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Despite Democratic election wins across Nevada last year, Republicans are banking on President Donald Trump's enthusiastic supporters, a united GOP organization and a soaring economy to turn the state red in 2020. Though Trump lost Nevada in 2016 to Democrat Hillary Clinton and the state has trended blue in recent cycles, it's still considered a battleground. Trump's reelection campaign identified the state as one of at least four the president lost but is targeting in 2020....

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are going on tour. The Clintons announced on Monday that they would headline a series of live events together -- billed "An Evening with The Clintons" -- across the country in the final weeks of 2018 and into 2019. The tour will provide the Democratic stalwarts with a notable platform weeks after the consequential 2018 midterm elections and deep into 2019, when a number of Democrats will be jockeying for positions in the fight to be the party's standard bearer against President Donald Trump in 2020. The events, which are being produced by tour promoter Live...

    The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | September 13, 2018 | The Associated Press
    Nevada Republican U.S. Sen. Dean Heller said Wednesday he's willing to bet $100 that the Senate will confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by the end of the month. But if there's any delay, he's confident the nominee will be confirmed before November's midterm elections. Heller made the comments on "Nevada Newsmakers ," and is in a tough re-election battle this year and is the only Republican senator running for another term in a state that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016. The senator has portrayed himself to conservatives as the only thing standing in the way of Democrats taking...
  • Asian Americans for the 2018 Midterm Elections

    09/12/2018 1:36:32 AM PDT · by Doreener · 3 replies
    Chinese Americans are the wealthiest and best-educated Americans. They should learn to choose candidates who truly represent their self-interest. Republican politicians who support fair competition in the markets and in the schools best represent Asian American Republicans. They believe in rejecting anyone who supports the use of race rather than merit to pick winners, losers and even Harvard students. In the 1992 presidential election, 55 percent of Asian Americans voted Republican. For the 2018 midterm elections, Nevada, Southern California, New Jersey and Virginia could be important battlegrounds in congressional races for Asian-American GOP votes, according to Karthick Ramakrishnan, a public...

    A sneak peek at the Times’s news analysis from Nov. 4, 2020. Nov. 4, 2020 In the end, a bitterly fought election came down to the old political aphorism, popularized during Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 run against George H.W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” This time, however, it was the Republican incumbent, not his Democratic challenger, who benefited from that truism. Donald J. Trump has been decisively re-elected as president of the United States, winning every state he carried in 2016 and adding Nevada, even as he once again failed, albeit narrowly, to gain a majority of the popular vote....

    Hillary Clinton has hired two political operatives from her 2016 presidential campaign to help manage Onward Together, the project she founded this spring with former governor Howard Dean to fund and support a coalition of Democratic groups led by activists and organizers. The new additions, Emmy Ruiz and Adam Parkhomenko, held central roles on Clinton’s campaign: Ruiz delivered key victories as state director in Nevada during the primary and in Colorado during the general election; Parkhomenko worked in headquarters as her director of grassroots engagement before moving to the Democratic National Committee. Both served on Clinton’s first presidential bid in...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that no law could have stopped the suspected shooter, Stephen Paddock, who was behind last week's mass shooting in Las Vegas. Feinstein spoke on CBS News’s “Face the Nation” about gun legislation in the wake of the attack launched from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel targeting a country music concert.....

    Hillary Clinton criticized the National Riffle Association on Monday morning while offering her condolences to the victims of a mass shooting in Las Vegas this weekend that left at least 50 people dead and more than 400 people injured. “Our grief isn’t enough,” the former Democratic Party presidential candidate tweeted. “We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.” Clinton’s statement was one of the most politically charged among prominent politicians who weighed in on social media in the hours after the attack. She writes in...

    There was a break-in at Senator Dean Heller’s office in southwest Las Vegas over the weekend and the GOP’s health-care bill seems to have inspired it. Considered a key swing vote on the Senate bill, Heller initially expressed reservations about its Medicaid cuts but hasn’t said much about the latest revised version. According to one report, his vote is likely to be “bought,” giving Republicans enough “yeas” to push the bill through. One person in Nevada wants to make sure Heller remains opposed to the bill and went about it in about the worst possible way, breaking into his office...

    New York Magazine ^ | December 27, 2016 | Jason Zengerle
    Nevada’s departing senator would have fought Trump with a ruthlessness perhaps no other Democratic leader has. Harry Reid was searching for someone to take a stand. It was a Tuesday morning in early December, three days before his three-decade congressional career would effectively come to an end, and Reid had summoned about 20 of his staffers to his Capitol office just off the Senate floor. Although it’s reserved for the leader of the Senate’s minority party, it’s still a ­magisterial space, with soaring ceilings and mosaic floors. As a cold rain pelted the windows, the Nevada senator sat in a...

    CNN Politics ^ | November 2, 2016 | Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director
    Both the Clinton and Trump campaigns have hit the ground hard in Arizona, Florida, Nevada and Pennsylvania, and new CNN/ORC polls across the four states paint a picture of a tight race to the finish in critical battlegrounds. Clinton holds a 4-point edge among likely voters in the historically blue-tilting Pennsylvania, and Trump tops Clinton by 5 with voters in red-leaning Arizona. Though both states tilt in the same direction as their 2012 results, the leaders' margins are tighter than their predecessors' final leads were in each state. Florida appears to be as tight a contest as ever, with Clinton...

    Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, finally gave $10 million in September to mega-donor Todd Ricketts’s pro-Trump super PAC Future45, according to the latest filings with the Federal Election Commission. The group raised another $2.3 million from Todd Ricketts’ billionaire father, TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts, and energy executives Joe Craft and Jay Bergman. According to a Politico analysis, only $68.7 million out of the $212 million Trump collected over the past three months in joint ventures with the RNC and state parties ended up in his campaign coffers, with $63.5 going to overhead expenses: consultants, catering, space...

    RENO, Nevada (CNN) -- A man who said he was representing the "alt-right" and embraced the label of "neo-Nazi" was shouted down by Donald Trump supporters at a rally here Wednesday night. Brady Garrett, 25, was holding up signs during the rally that said "Research Holocaust Revisionism" and "1488," the latter of which is a combination of numbers emblematic of Nazism and white supremacy. He was escorted out of the event by Trump security. Talking to reporters after the rally, Garrett said the United States needs "to put European Americans first" and disparaged Zionists. Garrett confirmed that he was a...

    RENO, Nev. — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is adding a Reno stop to his trip to Nevada this week. His campaign says he’ll be holding a rally at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. That comes after an 11:30 a.m. rally at the Henderson Pavilion in southern Nevada. His other stops this week are in Colorado and Arizona. It marks Trump’s second visit to Northern Nevada in two months; he made an appearance at a fundraising dinner in August in Stateline, at Lake Tahoe’s South Shore. Nevada is a key battleground state; polls show...
