Liberal U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto-Reid (D-NV) has, not surprisingly, come out against the GOP tax cut proposal, screeching in a tweet on Monday that it gives “big corporations & wealthiest tax breaks. Completely outrageous.”
Which completely outraged a Democrat mega-donor, time-share kingpin Steven “Clueless” Cloobeck.
“It’s ok if you take wealthy Democratic money?” he asked in response. “Come on knock this crap off. Don’t be a hypocrite u took $500k from me.”
Since corporations can’t give to federal campaigns and the individual contribution limit is $2,700…seems Mr. Cloobeck and Ms. Cortez-Masto-Reid have some ‘splainin’ to do!
That said, the wealthy Clueless One recently withdrew his support of Cortez-Masto-Reid’s fellow liberal colleague, Sen. Dean Heller, in next year’s election. And he has ruminated and fulminated about running for public office for years.
Could he be outraged enough with Cortez-Masto-Reid’s “crap” and “hypocrisy” to run in the Dem Senate primary vs. Jacky Rosen next year? Stay tuned, Batfans.
THE SCHWARTZ REPORT
The news just keeps getting worser and worser for moderate Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Schwartz.
First it was announced on Tuesday that Vice President Mike Pence’s PAC, Great America Committee, is making its first round of campaign contributions “to those who have gone above and beyond to promote the president’s policies.”
And on the list of the Veep’s initial list of support: conservative Nevada GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt.
Adding insult to injury, Zachary Cohen of National Journal – reporting from the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) meeting in Austin, Texas – noted on Tuesday that the RGA “typically doesn’t weigh in for primaries.”
However, even though the RGA meeting is “not restricted to governors,” four GOP gubernatorial candidates were NOT invited to attend. Among the four…
The writing on the wall couldn’t be clearer, but Mr. Schwartz is apparently too blind to see it. Maybe he should stick to fixing cars.
* Splittsville, USA. Rumors of marriages on the rocks are swirling around the Silver State, including two high-level GOP elected leaders (one involving a staffer) and a high-profile media personality.
Sorry, no names at this time without actual confirmations. But keep your eyes and ears open.
* Nevada’s recreational marijuana sales continue to be, um, high.
* Uber-liberal Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani and I RARELYagree on an issue. But her call to restrict traffic on the Las Vegas Strip to buses, taxis and ride-sharing vehicles is an idea whose time has come.
* Had lunch last week with CD3 candidate Michelle Mortensen. She’s the real deal. VERY impressive. Informed, knowledgeable and able to clearly articulate the conservative message. Self-confident and a fighter. Wonderful personal story.
If she signs the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and can raise enough money to be competitive, this is someone I could enthusiastically support. Check her out: http://michellemortensen.com/
