With polls and prognosticators giving Democratic candidate Steven Horsford an edge in the race in Nevada’s 4th Congressional District, the National Republican Campaign Committee has sought to impugn Horsford by highlighting his career since his 2014 congressional defeat.
With a seemingly unending barrage of days with triple-digit heat and air conditioning running nonstop, it isn’t hard to imagine most southern Nevadans looking at their monthly power bill and wishing the cost was a bit lower.
The Coalition to Defeat Question 3 (which has been almost entirely funded by the state’s incumbent utility, NV Energy) has seized the politically popular issue of rooftop solar as a possible casualty if the ballot measure were to pass in 2018.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Chris Giunchigliani’s votes from 17 years ago to increase state legislators’ pay is coming back to haunt her in the form of attack ads from her primary opponent, Steve Sisolak.
Danny Tarkanian’s past financial woes have served as tasty campaign fodder for opponents in several of his unsuccessful bids for office, and the attacks are continuing in his longshot effort to knock off Sen. Dean Heller in the 2018 Republican primary.
Even as congressional Republicans made good on their promise to deliver a massive tax overhaul bill to President Donald Trump this week, it’s assuredly not the last time Nevadans will hear about the bill.
The group is paying for a two-week video ad campaign on Facebook that starts out by saying “Ruben Kihuen voted to kill the Children’s Health Insurance Program.” The ad, which NRCC says is backed by four figures of funding, is almost identical to ones running against other Democrats in swing districts such as Florida’s Charlie Crist.
Republican Sen. Dean Heller — widely considered one of the most vulnerable Senators up for re-election — took the offensive this week in targeting his likely Democratic opponent, Rep. Jacky Rosen, for her vote against a major budget resolution that promises to pave the way for Republican-led efforts to overhaul the tax code.
The Rosen ad — which is being displayed on two billboards in Reno near Veterans of Foreign Wars posts — shows a picture of Rosen next to Pelosi and says: “Jacky Rosen’s record: Voted against Nevada Veterans. Stands with Nancy Pelosi. Our veterans deserve better.”
A mobile video billboard near the Las Vegas Strip shows Heller smiling and laughing at a White House lunch with his fellow senators while the president cajoled Heller over his position on Senate Republicans’ efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A stationary billboard will display a static version of the same message.
