Lance Gilman tells The Associated Press that to many voters in Storey County his Mustang Ranch is just a business and a prosperous one at that. The 68-year-old Gilman describes himself as a “dye-in-the-wool Republican who loves American values.

    Brothel owner who employs 80 prostitutes wins election as county commissioner in Nevada... and he's a Republican Lance Gilman is a thriving businessman with dozens of employees. That those workers include a good many prostitutes didn't faze the people of a rural Nevada county who recently elected him as a Storey County commissioner by a wide margin. The Mustang Ranch brothel owner is the first such owner to win election to public office in Nevada since prostitution was legalized here in 1971, Nevada historian Guy Rocha said. And he's believed to be the first to do so in the state's...

    One of the states Democrats view as part of an electoral college firewall is still leaning slightly to the president, per Public Policy Polling: PPP's newest Nevada poll finds Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney 51/47, numbers exactly identical to what they were when we last polled the state two weeks ago. Obama is already well on his way to winning Nevada based on early votes that have been cast in the week. Among those who say they've already voted he has a 61/39 advantage. Romney is up 51/46 with those planning to vote between now and election day. ... Obama's...

In an election with only a handful of states that are considered up for grabs, the importance of Nevada's six electoral votes was highlighted when President Barack Obama chose Lake Las Vegas, a golf resort east of here, as the place to spend three days preparing...

    Democrats will go into Election Day with a 90,000 voter registration advantage in Nevada, a smaller edge than in 2008 when Barack Obama carried the state. At the close of voter registration this week in the Mountain West swing state, there were 526,986 Democrats and 436,799 Republicans — a difference of 90,187 active voters. In 2008, at the close of registration, Democrats held a statewide advantage of 100,723 voters. While the statewide gap between the parties has closed slightly since 2008 — a year when Democratic registration surged in Nevada and Obama carried the state by 121,000 votes — the...
  • Nevada Early Voting is Starting and Day One Results Are Out

    10/21/2012 5:22:02 AM PDT · by Perdogg · 18 replies
    Early voting is a new phenomenon that is has great implications on the final election outcome. Despite this, I don’t much enjoy blogging it. The numbers get updated sporadically, there is an inherent uncertainty in what the requests or submissions actually mean and the sample sizes are really small. This makes drawing conclusions not much better than just plain old guess work until a critical mass of votes have accumulated. And by that time someone else has already done a better job analyzing the data than I could so I just leave it to them. One of the only reasons...

    October 21, 2012 Nevada's Second Largest Daily Drops Obama, Endorses Romney By Daniel Doherty 10/20/2012   On Saturday afternoon, the Reno Gazette-Journal -- the second largest daily newspaper in Nevada -- cut ties with President Barack Obama and endorsed Governor Mitt Romney for President of the United States. Here’s the most salient excerpt from the devastating editorial: However, while he had to contend with a Republican Party that was determined to deny him a second term at any cost, Obama cannot avoid the consequences of poor decisions and misplaced priorities. Foremost among them was his early focus on an...

    Daily Caller ^ | 10/11/12 | Caroline May
    While some may roll their eyes at Libertarian Party presidential nominee and marijuana-legalization champion Gary Johnson, recent polling shows that his presence on the ballot could have an effect on the presidential race, at least in Nevada. A Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey released Wednesday found President Barack Obama has a four-point lead over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Nevada (51-47 percent). But when Johnson is thrown into the mix, the former New Mexico governor garners three percent of the vote, largely pulling voters from Obama. “When Gary Johnson’s included he gets 3 percent and actually takes mostly from Obama,...

    LAS VEGAS, Oct. 11, 2012 -- /PRNewswire/ -- With the election less than one month away, Mitt Romney leads by 3 points over President Obama in the key battleground state of Nevada. Just prior to the debate in Colorado both candidates increased their presence in Nevada. Mitt Romney opened offices in Hispanic areas of Las Vegas while President Obama personally delivered pizza to his volunteers. Obama is now suffering the fallout of last week's debate, which is demonstrated in a recent poll conducted by Dane & Associates. Just a week ago, this race was a dead heat, but now after...

    Glen Bolger is a partisan pollster for Republican candidates. His reputation for accuracy, however, is well-documented. He was among a scant few who thought Harry Reid would win the 2010 Senate race when everyone else was writing his obituary. Here are his results showing the race tied 46 to 46 in Nevada. And the cross tabs with Party ID of D +5 (Dem 41, Rep 36, Ind 22). In 2008 party ID was D +8 (Dem 38, Rep 30, Ind 32) and in 2004 party ID was R +4 (Dem 35, Rep 39, Ind 26).

    CNN) – One day before Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney campaigns in Nevada, a new poll indicates the state remains very much a battleground in the race for the White House. According to CNN/ORC International survey (PDF) released Thursday, 49% of likely voters in Nevada say if the election were held today, they'd vote for President Barack Obama, with 46% supporting Romney. The president's three point margin is within the poll's sampling error, suggesting the two candidates are effectively tied in the fight for the Silver State's six electoral votes.

    Found a video someone uploaded of Ryan's first post-DNC campaign rally stop in Sparks, NV we attended Friday. I have no affiliation with the site that uploaded this, and the video quality isn't the greatest but the audio is pretty good. His stump speech changed significantly, and there wasn't a teleprompter in site. He specifically went after Reid.
