Republican group makes last-minute push for down-ballot candidates including Roberson, Cegavske

A national Republican group focused on down-ballot races is making a last-minute push for candidates running for lieutenant governor, secretary of state and two Assembly seats.

The Republican State Leadership Committee has in the past week launched ads or microsites supporting lieutenant governor candidate Michael Roberson, Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske and Assembly candidates Jill Dickman and Stephen Silberkraus, both of whom are trying to reclaim their seats in the Assembly after losing close races in 2016.

The biggest spending comes in the state’s race for lieutenant governor, where the organization launched a six-figure digital ad campaign attacking Democratic candidate Kate Marshall for her alleged “horrific record of mismanagement” while she was state treasurer. It also launched an attack website called mismanagedmarshall.com that cites a 2010 Reno Gazette-Journal article citing a shortfall in the state’s budget account for college scholarships and for Marshall increasing her office’s budget by nearly $2 million.

In a response, Mashall’s campaign said the budget was higher because her predecessor, Brian Krockli, kept several of the office’s accounts off-the-books (which resulted in Krolocki’s indictment), and that she worked to fund the scholarship account after lawmakers took $5 million from the account in 2010 and 2011 to bridge shortfalls in the state budget.

“Contrary to the lies Michael Roberson and his friends are spreading, Kate Marshall saved the taxpayer(s) over $2 million dollars and saved the Millennium Scholarship,” her campaign manager Anna Scanlon said in an email. “If Michael Roberson understood how the state’s budget worked, he’d recognize that.”

The RSLC has also launched microsites supporting Cegavske (www.secretarycegavske2018.com) and similar education-themed sites supporting Dickman and Silberkraus. Both candidates are running in districts with nearly even or Republican-leaning electorates and against candidates they defeated in 2014 — Dickman against Democrat Skip Daly and Silberkraus against Democrat Lesley Cohen.

A spokesman for the group declined to say why it had decided to get involved in those specific races, though Dickman and Silberkraus represent some of the party’s best chances to pick up seats in the Assembly.

RSLC has reported raising more than $9.7 million throughout 2018, and spending more than $210,000 primarily on the efforts to recall two state senators earlier this year. On their most recent campaign finance report filed with the Nevada secretary of state, the organization reported transferring $5,000 each to Cegavske and Republican lieutenant governor hopeful Roberson, who was a member of the RSLC’s 2017 executive committee.

At forum, Laxalt, Roberson predict future of ESA school choice program in a Democrat-dominated Legislature

Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt argues that he has the tools to extract funding for the controversial Education Savings Accounts program from a Democratic-controlled Legislature because he was able to get bipartisan support for dealing with elder fraud and a backlog of untested rape kits.

Laxalt’s comments came during a forum on school choice Tuesday night at the East Las Vegas Community Center that also included Republican lieutenant governor candidate Michael Roberson and congressional candidates Danny Tarkanian and Cresent Hardy (The Nevada Independent was barred from attending, but obtained a recording of the event from a member of the audience). The attorney general cited his work on bills related to rape kit backlogs and guardianship as examples of how he could bring both sides to the table and achieve compromise.

“I needed to go to Republicans and Democrats — Democratic majority — and get signoff to move forward with these programs. We got unanimous support for that program,” he said. “We’ve been very successful at that in the AG’s office and I hope to be very successful with that if I'm elected governor.”

But protecting seniors from scammers and preventing a backlog of rape kits — two issues on which there is no organized opposition, and the former of which is facilitated in large part by federal grant money — are likely to be far easier fights than the one waiting him over ESAs should he be elected governor. Republicans in the minority last session were unable to secure funding for ESAs, which allow parents to redirect the per-pupil state school funding allotment for their child to private school tuition or other education expenses, in spite of vowing not to support a budget and having a popular Republican governor on their side.

In the 2019 session, Democrats — who have been almost unanimous against ESAs — are expected to hold their majorities easily and could potentially have veto-proof majorities if they win key seats. That would further reduce a Republican governor’s leverage.

Republicans and Democrats ultimately agreed to a compromise in 2017 that included $20 million in one-time additional funding for Opportunity Scholarships, a tax credit-funded scholarship program that provides a limited number of low- and middle-income students with thousands of dollars each year to pay for private school tuition. No funding was allocated to ESAs, which have no limitations based on family income, and only one Democrat publicly supported the concept.

“We tried it last session and we were not entirely successful although ... we tripled Opportunity Scholarships and I don't want to gloss over that because the conversation is always about ESAs,” Roberson said, pointing to the fact that no Democrats supported Opportunity Scholarship legislation in 2015 but numerous Democrats voted for the compromise that involved the scholarships in 2017.

A poll commissioned by The Nevada Independent in April found that 49 percent of Nevadans favor the ESA program, while 38 percent opposed it and another 13 percent either didn’t know or didn’t answer the question.

“I think elected officials in both parties are starting to wake up to this groundswell of support in our communities for school choice,” Roberson said, adding the Democratic Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson and Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford acknowledged in a private meeting that the scholarships were a success. “I was gratified to hear both of them admit in the governor's office, in front of all of us, that they were wrong about Opportunity Scholarships. That they had seen Opportunity Scholarships working for families in their communities, and they said it was much to their chagrin because they wanted to see the Opportunity Scholarships fail but they couldn't ignore the evidence.”

Asked for comment on Roberson’s account, Frierson and Ford issued a joint statement:

"At the end of last session, Senator Roberson cared more about vouchers than he did about our state's budget. He rejected any offers of compromise, even in the last hours of session. Rather than find common ground, he refused to support the entire state budget unless we moved revenue from marijuana sales to fund ESAs,” they wrote. “Despite his refusal to be a statesman, the rest of us in a bipartisan effort reached a compromise after the budget was approved that included a one-time allocation of additional money for Opportunity Scholarships. No one wanted Opportunity Scholarships to fail and ending it was never even proposed.”

Critics say that the ESA program will divert scarce dollars from public schools, and have raised concerns that ESAs are available even to wealthy families who can afford private school tuition. Opponents also see ESAs as part of a broader movement to undermine the public education system to the benefit of private, for-profit operators that are not obligated to serve every student.

“In my opinion, until we fund public education the way that we should to be able to make a true assessment, we are doing a disservice to the greater masses by taking money away and sending it to private school, and certainly in a way that lacks accountability, lacks any conversation about need,” Democratic Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson told The Nevada Independent in May.

Roberson pushed back against criticisms, saying schools that lose students through ESAs would have fewer students to serve and less crowded classrooms, although he acknowledged that “we need to hire more teachers.” As for capital costs, he noted that the 2015 Legislature he helped lead approved a $4 billion bond rollover to support school construction.

“But ultimately this comes down to what's best for you, what's best for your family, not what's best for the government and what the government decides to do with your money,” he said.

Roberson sounded an optimistic note about the ESA program and sold Laxalt as the only hope for the issue to come up for discussion, and to prevent the Opportunity Scholarship funds from drying up and “kids basically being thrown out of schools because they won't have the funding they had today.”

“I’m confident if we can get a Republican governor and pick up some more school choice legislators next session, we can also get funding for ESAs,” Roberson said. “But that will not happen if Mr. Laxalt’s opponent becomes governor. It simply will not.”

Laxalt’s Democratic opponent, Steve Sisolak, says on his website that he will “fight against the diversion of funding from public schools into private schools.”

Laxalt noted that his office, with the help of a renowned outside lawyer, defended the ESA program in court. The Nevada Supreme Court determined that the concept of ESAs passed constitutional muster on the point of separation of church and state, but the funding mechanism did not.

His office has also been quietly involved in a variety of other states’ fights over public funding for religious schools. He signed an amicus brief to the Supreme Court in 2015 defending a Colorado voucher program, and led an amicus brief that same year siding with a Lutheran preschool in Missouri that sought state grant funding for its playground.

He said a governor could get results on the ESA front in spite of political opposition if they  “push and push and push and not take no for an answer.”

“I hope that what happened with Opportunity Scholarships, where finally both sides came together and understood that this kind of school choice helped the kids that most needed it,” Laxalt said. “We need to have that same conversation over ESAs and i hope we can have it.

We have to be willing to put some pressure on and say we won’t accept not moving forward because this is an important innovation that will help kids from all walks of life.”

Zoom School debate

The forum also showcased some tension between Roberson and Tarkanian, who faced each other in a bitter congressional primary in 2016. Tarkanian, after hammering Roberson over his support of the Commerce Tax in 2015, won. He then went on to lose a close race to Rep. Jacky Rosen.

At the forum, Tarkanian said two of his children fell behind grade level in English and math in their public school, and he blames it on too many children speaking Spanish in the classroom and teachers taking time to have material translated back and forth.

“I don't see how you can stay up with the world standards … if we are teaching kids that they're not all uniformly speaking the same language in the classroom and obviously that language has to be English,” he said. “I think that's the biggest problem facing our communities right now.”

Tarkanian took aim at Zoom Schools, a program in which schools with high percentages of English language learned are given extra money that can be used for an extended school day, a longer school year, or other interventions aimed at helping English language learners catch up. He criticized schools for not separating students to “teach them English so that they can come into the classrooms and perform at a high level.”

“What they do is they try to give more money to those programs that have more hours in the day, they have higher technology ... but $200 million, and $100 million from the tax increase that was passed in 2014, went to the Zoom Schools instead of going to the teachers, instead of going into the classroom,” he said. “Instead of making all the other kids better students too, we're trying to throw more money in a way that I just think is very difficult to excel in.”

Roberson defended the program, which he helped expand in 2015. And he also defended a move that has been a political liability for him in primaries and is opposed by the governor candidate he supports — leading the charge to pass a $1.1 billion tax package backed by Gov. Brian Sandoval.


“Danny mentioned Zoom Schools and the tax increase. I was the first legislator who proposed English language learner funding by the state and I'm proud of that and I'm proud of Zoom Schools and I think they're working,” he said. “I also led the effort to raise taxes for the largest increase in funding for public education and I'm proud of that. But I also believe that parents deserve choices.”

PAC launches six-figure attack against Roberson, chaired by former Republican state senator

A PAC headed by a former Republican state senator is up with a new campaign targeting lieutenant governor candidate and Republican state Senate Leader Michael Roberson.

Nevada Values PAC, which is affiliated with the left-leaning 501(c)(4) nonprofit Battle Born Progress, is up with a new digital ad and website attacking Roberson as the “Walk Out King,” — a reference to a breakdown in budgetary negotiations near the tail-end of the 2017 Legislature.

The website, RobersonFacts.com, claims the Republican state senator threw a “temper tantrum” and walked out during budget votes after failed negotiations in funding for the state’s Education Savings Account program — which would allocate grants for parents to spend at private and parochial schools with no income limits.

The PAC is running digital banner and video ads and is spending at least six figures on the advertising buy in conjunction with another PAC run by the Nevada State Education Association, which will produce similarly-themed mail pieces. Annette Magnus, the PAC’s registered agent, said it will run ads supporting Roberson’s Democratic opponent Kate Marshall later this week.

Although the PAC has been registered with the state since 2014, it amended its registration paperwork earlier this month to add a new president — state Sen. Patricia Farley.

Farley, who isn’t running for re-election, was elected to the state Senate as a Republican in 2014 but changed her party affiliation to nonpartisan and caucused with Democrats during the 2017 Legislature. She blamed the party switch on Roberson, saying he acted with “discrimination, with hate, and with total and solely self-promotion.”

In an interview, Farley said she was still registered as a nonpartisan, and agreed to become involved with the PAC as long as she considered its messaging to be accurate.

“As long as it’s factual information getting out to the voters, whether its Republican or Democratic, I support it,” she said.

Farley was one of three state senators targeted for a recall in an effort championed by Roberson, though the effort failed to garner enough signatures to qualify. Recalls targeting Democratic state senators Nicole Cannizzaro and Joyce Woodhouse were also deemed short of signatures needed to qualify by a Clark County District Court judge in April; the case is being appealed to the Nevada Supreme Court.

Lieutenant governor candidates release dueling television ads on same day

Sign in front of the Nevada State Capitol building

The two candidates vying to be Nevada’s next lieutenant governor unveiled television ads Wednesday that tout their respective accomplishments but gloss over some of the details.

The 30-second ad released by Michael Roberson’s campaign features female supporters talking about the Nevada Senate Republican leader’s work in Carson City. Here’s the text of the ad, which states his full name four times:

"Only one candidate led the effort to pass the largest increase in education spending in Nevada history and actually reduce class sizes in our schools -- Michael Roberson. The only candidate who passed the first-ever legislative gift ban — Michael Roberson. Michael wrote the bill cracking down on drug companies overcharging for prescription drugs and expanded health care for every woman in Nevada. That’s why we support Michael Roberson. Michael Roberson for lieutenant governor.”

Roberson played a key role in helping pass the Commerce Tax during the GOP-controlled 2015 legislative session. The tax — imposed on businesses with more than $4 million in gross Nevada revenue per year as part of the largest tax increase in state history — was part of Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval’s plan to reform the state’s long-struggling K-12 education system, but it ignited controversy within his own party.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt, who is essentially Roberson’s running mate, has said he’ll seek to repeal the Commerce Tax.

As for the bill about prescription drugs, the situation is a bit more complicated than Roberson’s ad lets on. Democratic Sen. Yvanna Cancela authored a pharmaceutical transparency bill that would have required manufacturers of diabetes drugs to disclose information about their costs and profits, but Sandoval vetoed the measure during the final days of the 2017 legislative session.

Roberson, meanwhile, had sponsored a bill addressing the middlemen in the drug-pricing process known as pharmacy benefit managers. Two days after Sandoval vetoed Cancela’s bill, it was given a new life by being almost entirely amended into Roberson’s bill. The bipartisan measure passed the Legislature and was signed into law by the governor.

“This is a bipartisan compromise,” Roberson said on the Senate floor in June 2017. “It’s actually better than a compromise because we are focused all along the supply chain from the pharmaceutical manufacturer on down to the retail pharmacist in making a serious effort to address the skyrocketing costs of diabetes drugs to patients here in Nevada.”

Roberson’s wife, Liberty Leavitt, also makes a brief cameo in the ad. Leavitt, a fifth-generation Nevada resident who says she’s a “registered independent,” issued a statement with the ad supporting her husband and his mission to become lieutenant governor.

“Our family has faced its own challenges with regard healthcare,” she wrote. “I am someone who currently struggles with rheumatoid arthritis and a number of other health challenges that virtually all insurers regard as a pre-existing conditions. Michael has been my strongest supporter in navigating these challenges and we have faced them together. I know Michael will continue to be a strong advocate for women’s issues and for better healthcare for all Nevadans.”

His opponent, Democrat Kate Marshall, released her first television ad the same day. The 30-second ad, which mentions her full name twice, touts her record as the former state treasurer, but it also attacks Roberson without any citations.

When asked for backup for the criticism that Roberson or his law firm benefited from his votes, Marshall's campaign sent stories about the senator proposing a mining tax that was supported by Las Vegas Sands, a client of his law firm's government affairs team.

Here’s the full text of Marshall’s ad:

"A federal prosecutor who held big corporations accountable for preying on working families. A state treasurer who, without raising taxes, guided Nevada during the worst economic crisis in generations. Created a college savings program for Nevada kindergartners, our next generation. That's Kate Marshall, fighting to make the middle class first class. But Michael Roberson, sponsoring bills that benefit him, his law firm, and his pocketbook. It's clear. For lieutenant governor, one candidate's fighting for Nevada's future: Kate Marshall."

The ad’s reference to taxes is misleading. As state treasurer, Marshall did not have authority to increase taxes. To increase taxes, Nevada law requires a legislative supermajority — approval from two-thirds of state lawmakers in each house — or a legislative majority followed by a vote of the people in the next general election.

Marshall’s ad is airing in the Reno and Las Vegas markets. It’s part of a six-figure ad buy for cable, broadcast and digital.

The ad released by Roberson’s campaign is for digital and television. His campaign team did not disclose where it’s running or the cost of the ad buy.

 

Obama endorses additional 12 Nevada Democratic candidates ahead of midterms

Former President Barack Obama has officially endorsed another 12 Nevada Democrats on the 2018 ballot as part of a second wave of more than 260 midterm endorsements nationwide.

Obama previously endorsed a slew of Democratic candidates in the state, including gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak, U.S. Senate candidate Jacky Rosen and congressional candidates Susie Lee and Steven Horsford.

He added to that list of endorsements by backing three statewide candidates — lieutenant governor candidate Kate Marshall, attorney general candidate Aaron Ford and secretary of state candidate Nelson Araujo — as well as Clint Koble, the Democrat running in the state’s 2nd Congressional District.

He also issued endorsements for state Senate candidate Melanie Scheible and Assembly incumbents Brittney Miller, Jason Frierson, Steve Yeager, Ozzie Fumo, Lesley Cohen, Sandra Jauregui and Assembly candidate Michelle Gorelow.

In 2016, Obama endorsed Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto, congressional candidates Rosen and Ruben Kihuen and 12 legislative candidates.

Clark County teacher's union backs Roberson in lieutenant governor bid

The Clark County Education Association is backing Republican Michael Roberson in his run for lieutenant governor, citing him as a “strong ally” for education.

In a release sent Thursday, the union said it made decisions on who to endorse based on records and not party affiliation, and cited Senate Minority Leader Roberson’s work on “key” education bills including the $1.1 billion in new and extended taxes approved by 2015 Legislature and Roberson that primarily funded K-12 education programs. It also cited his support of “dedicated funding” for teacher salaries, the 2015 Clark County School District reorganization bill and support for the state’s “Commerce Tax” on business revenue exceeding $4 million.

“He has a strong track record of leadership, and has demonstrated a longterm commitment to education and educators in Nevada,” the union wrote in a release announcing the endorsement.

Roberson and union leader John Vellardita are known to have a close relationship — Roberson told The Nevada Independent in 2017 that “John is the rare leader who reaches out and works with both sides of the aisle and he has no problem calling BS when he sees it, irrespective of party affiliation.”

The Nevada State Education Association, which had its ties with the Southern Nevada union cut in April, endorsed Democrat Kate Marshall in the lieutenant governor’s race in January.

Indy Database: Search every contribution to Kate Marshall and Michael Roberson

It happens every election cycle.

Accusations fly that a candidate took campaign contributions either from a nefarious source or did the bidding of a donor while in office.

Separating fact from fiction during campaigns, especially when it comes to campaign finance, can be difficult to suss out — but we want to make it easier.

That’s why between now and Election Day, The Nevada Independent will be launching searchable databases of all political contributions made to major state-level candidates running for office in 2018. Although the Nevada secretary of state maintains a full database of campaign finance reports, it can be difficult to know what exactly to look for, or to scan through the hundreds of donations made in big-ticket races.

The database below is searchable by contributor name and sortable by donation amount and the day of the reported contribution. Under Nevada law, individuals and organizations can donate up to $10,000 to a single candidate every election cycle.

We’ll also be cross-posting these databases on our Elections 2018 page, which also has information on candidates, polling, recent articles and voter registration.

Next up? Lieutenant governor candidates Michael Roberson and Kate Marshall, who have combined to raise more than $841,000 from nearly 560 donors since the start of 2015.

The following database includes every contribution over $50 made to Marshall or Roberson since January 1, 2015, and includes all contributions reported between then and the last reporting deadline of June 7, 2018.

Top Republican candidates line up behind Question 3, extol Nevada's low-tax 'exceptionalism' at forum

Republicans running for three of Nevada’s top statewide offices said they would back Question 3, the ballot measure known as the Energy Choice Initiative that seeks to end monopolies among utility companies and has been the subject of a pricey proxy war between billionaires.

Gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt, lieutenant governor candidate Michael Roberson and attorney general candidate Wes Duncan all threw their support behind the ballot measure during a forum hosted by the Southern Hills Republican Women’s Club in Henderson on Tuesday. All offered arguments extolling the virtues of a free market.

“I believe that any chance we have to deregulate something and make sure there isn't a monopoly will lower prices. That's why I support it,” Laxalt said. “You're kind of only hearing one side right now, that it's going to make it more expensive. I don't believe that, or I wouldn't support it.”

The candidates also touched on a variety of other issues, including their plans to improve education, the need to be tougher on crime and the outlook for an election that’ll take place in fewer than 70 days.

Here are some highlights.

Energy Choice Initiative

The proposed constitutional amendment to open energy markets to further competition is shaping up to be the most expensive and highest stakes contest on the ballot. While it passed overwhelmingly in 2016, true opposition hasn’t emerged until now, and total spending in the campaigns is expected to reach as high as $30 million to $60 million.

The pro-Question 3 campaign is backed almost entirely by Las Vegas Sands (owned by Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson) and data center company Switch. Opponents are backed by NV Energy, owned by Warren Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway. A steady drumbeat of endorsements and commercials have been rolling out.

Republicans are divided: Rep. Mark Amodei and Gov. Brian Sandoval are undecided, while candidate and former Rep. Cresent Hardy raised doubts about the measure although he says he’s technically neutral. But on Tuesday, the candidates in attendance were heartily in favor of it.

“I support Question 3 for the same reasons I supported competition for the taxi cartel in 2015: monopolies aren't good for consumers. It's not good for free enterprise,” Roberson said, before turning to push back against assertions that breaking up the monopoly would cause the problems California saw through deregulation in the early 2000s. “If you look at Texas, it's worked very well. I understand everyone sees the TV ads ... I understand good people can disagree on this. But I think the ads right now, funded by Warren Buffett and NV Energy, are scare-mongering. It's not deregulation. It is re-regulation.”

Laxalt argued that any problems could be headed off through the governor’s office or the Legislature.

“It's also important to note that the way it is written, there's five years to put together the plan that does what Question 3 is supposed to do,” he said. “And so there's all sorts of opportunities for a governor or the Legislature to make sure that it does what it's supposed to do. So certain parts of the state that may have troubles, the Legislature can figure out a way so that no consumer ends up being left behind.”

Duncan backed the ballot measure on the argument that a freer market will lead to lower prices.

“I think it breaks down pretty simply. In a free market system, if you have many choices, competition reigns and prices go down,” he said, adding that whatever the result, his office would fight for a good deal for ratepayers. “There's a consumer advocate in the attorney general's office that advocates on behalf of ratepayers so whatever the outcome is, we will continue to advocate on behalf of ratepayers.”

Roberson also sought to frame the debate as a political fight, with Democrats staking out the “no” position. Democratic former Sen. Harry Reid supports Question 3, but many other Democrats who formerly supported it have turned against it — including Democratic gubernatorial candidates Steve Sisolak and Chris Giunchigliani.

“Just so you know what a partisan issue this has become, they have gotten virtually every high profile Democrat elected official and every Democrat special interest group in the state to oppose Question 3. Why? Union issue,” he said, to some “boos” from the crowd. “But I want to give you some good news. Yesterday, the largest teacher's association in the state, the Clark County [Education Association], came out for Question 3. And the reason they did that is because the school's being soaked by NV Energy.”

The union has aligned closely with Roberson and is in the middle of a nasty split with its statewide affiliate, the Nevada State Education Association, which aligns more consistently with Democrats.

“Don't fool yourselves,” Roberson concluded. “The Democrats have all picked their side. So think about that.”

Crime

The three candidates sought to draw a contrast on criminal justice policies between themselves and Democrats who controlled the Legislature last year — and are likely to control it again in 2019. Duncan’s campaign motto is “A Safer Nevada,” and he said he was troubled that penalties for some crimes are not stronger.

“When you start to watch the news or really pay attention, things like home invasions, burglary, property crime, violent crime, is up in this community,” he said. “I will tell you that the Legislature in the past 10 years or so has really weakened a lot of the criminal penalties.”

Duncan offered some examples: a person convicted of a home invasion might only get probation.

“I think that's wrong and I think that if you come into the sanctuary, the place of someone's home and you enter that home, you should be doing prison,” he said.

He also doesn’t like the reduction of “enhancements” that automatically extend a sentence when, say, a deadly weapon is present during the commission of a crime.

“If you went in and you robbed a 7-11, and the judge gave you 8 to 20 years and you used a deadly weapon, you would get a consecutive sentence on top of that of another 8 to 20 years,” he said. “The Legislature's totally eroded that. Now its 1 to 20 years … So we need to be tough on the criminals that are preying on our communities and we need to be smart on mental health, domestic violence.”

Duncan’s Democratic opponent in the attorney general’s race, Aaron Ford, spearheaded a slate of criminal justice reforms in the Legislature while Senate majority leader in 2017. Roberson, who led Senate Republicans during that time, frequently derides the session as the most pro-felon in Nevada’s history.  

“They wanted felons to be able to serve on juries. I'm not kidding! And they wanted to hide a felon's criminal history from his and her employers, potential employers and the general public,” Roberson said, referring to bills on criminal record-sealing and “ban the box” — aimed at helping formerly incarcerated people get jobs upon their release. “And to top it off, Aaron Ford … actually said on video that if it were up to him he would like prisoners to vote from prison, while in prison.”

Roberson said he wondered why Ford supported voting rights for felons during a legislative hearing.

“Well now we know why — he's a tax-dodging tire thief!” he said, referring to a series of Ford arrests from the early 1990s that recently came to light, as well as an IRS tax lien.

Ford’s legal troubles have become the subject of a new ad campaign from the Republican Attorneys General Association, which is supporting Duncan’s bid. Asked in an interview whether, as RAGA contends, the arrests during Ford’s college years are reason enough for voters to oppose Ford, Duncan said it’s natural for someone’s criminal background to come up in a race and it’s one more factor for voters to weigh in their decisions.

"I do believe that Mr. Ford's record is a valid consideration in the race to be Nevada's top law enforcement officer, especially not fully paying his taxes until 2016," Duncan said in a follow-up message. "Attorney General is a leadership position, and that requires setting an example by following the law."

Education and Economic Development

Laxalt highlighted a platform he released earlier in the day that calls for increased funding for Career and Technical Education (CTE) as part of a $500 million investment in education. While Laxalt did not answer follow-up questions from reporters about the plan, the $500 million appears to mirror the amount that Gov. Brian Sandoval is working into his budget proposal as a result of increased revenue from existing tax sources.

“Just know that education will be my top priority if I'm elected your governor,” Laxalt said, adding that he was excited to see schools that were focusing on science, technology and math, as well as training in the trades.

Asked by a moderator about charter schools, Laxalt laid out a vision for more of them, as well as a focus on programs that send public dollars toward private schools.

“We want to expand charter schools. I'm also a big believer in expanding our Opportunity Scholarships and being able to push as well for ESAs, something that we defended,” he said.

The Opportunity Scholarships are a part of a program created in 2015 that allows businesses to get tax credits if they donate to scholarship funds that in turn help low- and middle-income applicants pay for private school tuition.

Laxalt indicated he would “push” for Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) — a program that puts public funds into accounts that parents can use for private school tuition or other qualified educational expenses. Unpopular among Democrats who say the setup diverts money from public schools, funds for the program are likely to meet opposition even if Laxalt is elected, although his office won a key legal victory on the overall legality of the program.

“We don't need to debate whether ESAs are constitutional in the state anymore,” he said. “We now need to debate how much money are we going to put in to give children across this state, their parents, choice, to be able to find what's the best educational system for them.”

Taxes

Laxalt, who has said he’d sign a no-new-taxes pledge, also decried his opponent’s statement during a primary debate that “everything’s on the table” in terms of a possible tax increase.

“Folks, we cannot afford to elect somebody where everything is on the table for taxes,” Laxalt said. “How many people are ready to have your property taxes raised? I think a lot of people, certainly in Las Vegas, they're on fixed incomes, they come here for a reason, it pencils out. To wake up and suddenly have your property taxes doubled or tripled would be something that's simply unaffordable.”

He argued that he and Sisolak offer two very different paths.

“Our path is the forward path, the path that embraces Nevada's exceptionalism, embraces us as a low-tax, low regulatory, libertarian-leaning, independent, Western state,” he said. “I'm not elected governor, how quickly is all that going to be gone? Weeks? Months? One session. One session a lot of those values we hold dearly could evaporate. Yes, folks, the stakes are that high.”

Roberson, on the other hand, argued that in the lieutenant governor’s job as president of the Senate, he could help bring Laxalt’s vision to fruition for the betterment of the state’s education system and economy.

“I have more legislative leadership experience than anyone who has ever run for lieutenant governor in the history of this state. I'm going to be able to use that as president of the Senate to push the Laxalt agenda in the Legislature,” he said. “Education is inextricably tied to economic development so you will see me in the most pro-education, pro-economic development lieutenant governor you've ever seen in this state.”

Indy Primer: What races to watch for on Primary Election Day

After months of campaigning and millions of dollars expended on ads and voter outreach, Nevada’s primary election is finally here.

Not only will the results of today’s election set in place the top contests on the November ballot, including one of the most closely watched U.S. Senate battles in the country and an open gubernatorial seat, but many important races will be effectively decided based on Tuesday’s results, including a seat on the powerful Clark County Commission and the county’s district attorney.

Voting will be open between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., with results trickling in after polls close. More than 157,000 people cast ballots during the state’s two-week early voting period, and more than 22,000 cast absentee or mail ballots ahead of Election Day. More than 93,000 people, or 39 percent of the final electorate, turned out on Election Day for the 2016 primary election.

Today is also the first day that Clark County is using vote centers, polling places where anyone can go on election day instead of a traditional assigned precinct. Find the one nearest to your home or place of work here. In Washoe County, you can find your precinct here if you know your precinct number or search for it here.

Here’s a quick look at what you need to know today:

The basics


Statewide

  • The big race to watch today is the competitive Democratic gubernatorial primary between Clark County Commissioners Steve Sisolak and Chris Giunchigliani. Sisolak, buoyed by support from former Sen. Harry Reid, has raised massive sums over the last year and a half and spent much of it on advertisements, but Giunchigliani has also raised a sizable amount and has been boosted by millions of dollars in outside spending and a late endorsement from Hillary Clinton. On the Republican side, Attorney General Adam Laxalt is expected to cruise to victory against state Treasurer Dan Schwartz and businessman Jared FisherFor more on the candidate’s records:
    Steve Sisolak | Chris Giunchigliani | Adam Laxalt | Dan Schwartz
  • Republican state Senate Leader Michael Roberson is facing primary challenges from former Assemblyman Brent Jones, businessman Eugene Hoover, Scott LaFata and Gary Meyers in his bid to replace Lieutenant Gov. Mark Hutchison. Former state Treasurer Kate Marshall is expected to easily win the state’s Democratic primary election against Laurie HansenFor more on the candidate’s records:
    Michael Roberson | Kate Marshall
  • As Attorney General Adam Laxalt pursues a bid for Nevada’s top office, a host of candidates are vying to replace them. Former first assistant attorney general Wes Duncan will face off against former Clark County deputy district attorney Craig Mueller in the Republican primary. State Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford is expected to cruise to victory in the Democratic primary. For more on the candidate’s records:
    Wes Duncan | Craig Mueller | Aaron Ford
  • Republican Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske is expected to easily fend off a primary challenge from political unknown Ernest Aldridge. Democratic Assemblyman Nelson Araujo, who announced his plan to challenge Cegavske in March, isn’t facing any primary challenges.
  • Republicans Derek Uehara and former Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers are facing off in the Republican primary for state treasurer, which is being vacated by incumbent Dan Schwartz. Democrat Zach Conine, who has outpaced both Republicans in fundraising, is not facing a primary challenge. There will be no primaries for the state’s candidates for state controller -- incumbent Republican Ron Knecht and Democrat Catherine Byrne.
  • Three seats on the Nevada Supreme Court are up on the ballot in 2018, but primary voters will only get a say in the race for retiring Justice Michael Cherry’s seat. District Court Judge Elissa Cadish has led the field in the fundraising in the nonpartisan statewide race, with Appeals Court Judge Jerry Tao, Leon Aberasturi, Alan Lefebvre and John Rutledge. The top two vote getters will advance to the general election.


U.S. Senate and House races:

  • Although it will likely be one of the top midterm races in the county come November, both Republican U.S. Sen. Dean Heller and Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen are expected to easily cruise to victory on Tuesday. Heller has faced little-to-no intraparty opposition since one-time challenger Danny Tarkanian jumped into the race for the state’s 3rd Congressional District in March, prompted by a tweet from the president. Rosen faces little threat from her five primary opponents, including attorney Jesse Sbaih, who ran against Rosen for Congress in 2016 and loaned $2 million to his primary campaign this year but has spent little of it.
  • Businessman Danny Tarkanian is the favorite to win the Republican primary in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District (again), but it’s still possible he could face an upset from state Sen. Scott Hammond or former television news reporter Michelle Mortensen.  Whoever comes out on top from this bitter primary will likely face Democratic education advocate and philanthropist Susie Lee, who faces little threat in her primary, on the November ballot. For more on the candidate’s records:
    Scott Hammond | David McKeon | Michelle Mortensen | Danny Tarkanian | Susie Lee
  • In Nevada’s 4th Congressional District, a crowded field of Democratic candidates are vying to replace Rep. Ruben Kihuen, who decided not to run for office after a series of allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against him in December. The presumed frontrunner is former Rep. Steven Horsford, who represented the district from 2013 to 2015, though he faces serious primary challengers in the form of state Sen. Pat Spearman, Nevada System of Higher Education regent Allison Stephens and Medicare for All activist Amy Vilela. Here’s what you need to know about the candidates. On the Republican side, former Rep. Cresent Hardy has significantly outraised his five primary opponents. For more on the candidate’s records:
    Steven Horsford | Pat Spearman | Allison Stephens | Amy Vilela
  • Six Democrats are vying for the honor of making a longshot run for Republican Rep. Mark Amodei’s seat in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District. No Democrat has ever come within five points of defeating a Republican for the seat. Amodei is facing a primary challenge from former Assemblywoman Sharron Angle, who has lagged him in fundraising.
  • Democratic Rep. Dina Titus is facing a primary challenge in Nevada’s 1st Congressional District from underdog teacher Reuben D’Silva in the state’s most Democratic district in terms of voter registration.


Legislature

  • Nine Assembly and three state Senate seats will effectively be decided on primary night, although Democrats are essentially guaranteed to keep control of both houses in November. Here’s a rundown of what races to keep an eye on tonight.


Clark County

  • Down South, there are two primaries for the Clark County School District Board of Trustees in District D and District F. Here’s what to look for.
  • Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson is trying to fend off a late challenge from longtime criminal defense attorney Robert Langford, who has been boosted by millions in outside money from national progressive groups. Because both candidates are Democrats and no other candidates filed to run, the race will be decided on Tuesday. For more on the candidate’s records, here’s Steve Wolfson and Rob Langford’s On the Record.
  • Control of a seat on the Clark County Commission will effectively be decided Tuesday, with likely frontrunners including state Sen. Tick Segerblom and union organizer Marco Hernandez. The district, which is currently held by Giunchigliani, has an overwhelming Democratic advantage in voter registration, so the winner will likely have an easy path to victory in November.
  • Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo is hoping to avoid a runoff election with any of his four challengers, including former North Las Vegas police lieutenant Tim Bedwell, by capturing more than 50 percent of the vote on Tuesday. Lombardo, who won an initial four-year term in 2014, has significantly outraised his opponents and can automatically capture another term if he garners a majority vote.


Washoe County

  • Voters in Washoe County will head to the polls to choose their party’s nominees in primaries for Reno mayor and City Council, Sparks mayor and City Council, Washoe County Commission. This overview narrows what to watch for up north today.

Spending spree continues in heated Democratic gubernatorial primary, with Sisolak leading the charge

Candidates for statewide and legislative races are on the home stretch for the primaries, and financial disclosures they filed before a Friday deadline show it’s an expensive stretch for many.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate and Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak burned through more than $1 million in the most recent three-week filing period, which ran from May 19 to June 7. That continues a spending spree that was already $5.2 million in the first 4 ½ months as he blankets the airwaves trying to defeat underdog fellow Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani, who spent just under half a million dollars.

Sisolak raised more than double what Giunchigliani did during the period, although multimillion dollar assistance from outside groups is helping her stay in the race.

Republican Attorney General Adam Laxalt spent about $225,000 more than he took in during the most recent filing period. He doesn’t have fierce competition in his primary for governor, but much of it was spent on ads — he was up on TV with a positive spot during Thursday’s final Stanley Cup championship game featuring the Vegas Golden Knights.

Other prominent races include brothel owner Dennis Hof’s Assembly bid to oust Pahrump Republican incumbent James Oscarson. Allegations of sexual misconduct and criticisms over taxes have flown in their expensive battle for an Assembly seat, which has also featured a visit from prominent pro-Donald Trump operative Roger Stone on Hof’s behalf.

And in the race for Clark County District Attorney, incumbent Steve Wolfson is trying to fend off challenger Rob Langford, who entered the race late but is being bolstered by significant spending by outside groups with ties to liberal billionaire George Soros.

Here’s a look at the latest campaign finance reports.

Governor

On the Democratic side, Sisolak brought in more than $363,000 over the reporting period, while spending more than $1 million.

He took in 17 donations of $10,000, the maximum amount a single entity is allowed to give per election cycle. Many of the donations appeared to come from the same parent entity — at least $30,000 combined from Fidelity National Title Group, Cannae Holdings LLC and FNTS Holdings LLC, all of which sent checks on the same day and listed the same address in Jacksonville, Florida.

He took in another $30,000 combined from prominent Las Vegas construction magnate Bill Richardson, his wife Linda and an entity called Sunglow LLC, all of which list the same address. He also received $5,000 from fellow Clark County Commissioner Larry Brown’s campaign account.

At least $955,000 of his reported $1 million in expenditures were earmarked for advertising. Since the start of the year, his campaign has reported spending more than $6.3 million.

His top opponent, Giunchigliani, reported raising more than $164,000 over the reporting period, while spending just over $494,000.

Her top contributor over the reporting period was Caesar’s Palace, which gave her a combined $10,000 from the casino giant’s namesake and Paris Las Vegas. She also received $5,000 each from Massachusetts philanthropist Barbara Lee, Las Vegas law firm Maier Gutierrez & Associates and Total Wine founder David Trone and his wife, June.

She also received $2,000 from Assemblywoman Teresa Benitez-Thompson and $1,000 from Assemblyman Justin Watkins, who is not running for reelection.

More than $395,000 of her reported $494,000 in expenditures went towards advertising costs.

Giunchigliani is getting a significant leg up from outside groups, including a PAC formed by EMILY’s List called “Women Vote!.” The group reported raising $1.36 million over the three weeks of the reporting period, and spending nearly all of it on advertisements.

She received help from Strong Public Schools Nevada, a PAC backed by the Nevada State Education Association and funded by the teacher’s union, their national parent and the local Service Employees International Union. The group reported raising $800,000 over the fundraising period, and spending $560,000 on advertising.

Republican Treasurer Dan Schwartz loaned his campaign another $75,000 during the reporting period, and spending nearly $83,000. In total, he’s loaned his campaign around $390,000 since the start of 2017.

Laxalt, who had a gaping lead over his opponents in a recent poll, raised an additional $398,752 during the second reporting period of the year. That puts him over the $2.2 million fundraising mark since the beginning of 2018. But he also spent heavily — to the tune of $623,855 — during this reporting period.

Individuals, from both inside and outside Nevada, made up a good portion of Laxalt’s donor base this period. For instance, members of the Florida-based Macricostas family contributed significant donations: Constantine Macricostas ($10,000), Marie Macricostas ($10,000) and Stephen Macricostas ($10,000). A business entity called Nikea LLC, which lists George Macricostas as an officer, also donated $10,000. George Macricostas is the founder of a data center company called RagingWire.

Laxalt also snagged a $5,000 donation from an entity called Shooting Range Industries LLC and $10,000 each from BR Guest Holdings LLC, ACHC LLC, Flat Willow Farm LLC and Wolf Creek Cattle Co. LLC, among others.

He also received donations from a key Trump administration figure — Joseph Otting, who was appointed comptroller of the currency in November and is charged with overseeing banking regulations. Otting and his wife contributed $20,000 to Laxalt’s campaign.He lives part-time in Las Vegas.

Laxalt spent big on polling, paying a firm called WPAi — which touts its work on Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign — $107,413 in May. Axiom Strategies, a consulting firm that worked with Cruz, is helping Laxalt’s campaign as well.

Laxalt also spent more than $400,000 toward advertising this period. His smallest individual expense was $2.17 at a 99 Cents Only store in Las Vegas.

Lieutenant governor

Republican state Sen. Michael Roberson raised $33,553 over the last few weeks, with $30,000 of it coming from MGM Resorts and its affiliated properties. He’s spent roughly $60,000 on assorted expenses, including about $54,000 on advertising and consultants, $3,000 on travel and $460 on polling.

Roberson helped Gov. Brian Sandoval by leading the legislative charge to raise and extend taxes in 2015, but that effort came back to haunt him in a Republican primary for Congress in 2016, which he lost to Danny Tarkanian.  Stridently anti-tax former Assemblyman Brent Jones is among Roberson’s primary opponents in his bid to be the governor’s deputy.

Jones raised $3,000 over the last few weeks, including $2,500 from Incorp Services, and spent $2,800 on advertising-related expenses.

On the Democratic side, Kate Marshall reported raising $21,246 in the pre-primary period and spending $8,544. Caesars Enterprise Services and the Communication Workers of America both donated $5,000.

Her biggest expenditure was paying her campaign manager.

Attorney General

Republican Wes Duncan collected $105,605 in contributions in the pre-primary period, and spent $241,539. He received $10,000 each from MGM Resorts International, the MGM Grand casino and the Bellagio, as well as a $10,000 from slot machine manufacturer IGT’s former chairman, Charles Mathewson.

He spent about $130,000 on advertising, including tens of thousands of dollars with Republican consulting firm November Inc., as well as with the target marketing firm Strategic Media Services.

His primary opponent, Craig Mueller, reported accepting $5,005 and spending $41,095 in the pre-primary period. Most of the spending is attributed to office expenses, but he also paid for polling and advertising with McShane LLC, the company run by Dan Schwartz campaign manager Rory McShane.

Democrat Aaron Ford raised about $64,000 over the same period — including $10,000 from Southern Glazier’s Wine and Spirits, $10,000 from the Democratic Attorney General Association’s Nevada PAC and $5,000 from the Communication Workers of America District 9 — and spent a little more than $181,000. He spent nearly $91,000 on advertising-related expenses to Mag Dog Mail and Blueprint Interactive and $41,000 on “miscellaneous” expenses to Myers Research in Washington, D.C.

Secretary of State

Republican incumbent Barbara Cegavske said she raised $5,550 in the pre-primary period and spent $11,492. Her biggest contribution was from a company called Incorp Services, while her biggest expense was $6,400 to public relations firm 10e Media.

Democratic Assemblyman Nelson Araujo reported raising $17,940 and spending $6,473 in the period. His biggest donation was $5,000 from the Communication Workers of America, and his biggest expenditure was paying his campaign manager.

State Senate District 8

With nonpartisan incumbent Sen. Patricia Farley not running for re-election, this swingy Las Vegas Senate district is teeming with candidates.

Republican former Assemblywoman Valerie Weber only raised about $6,500, but she has spent more than $67,000 over the past few weeks, largely on printing-related expenses and consultants.

Another Republican, former state Sen. Elizabeth Helgelien, raised a little more than $4,000 over that same period — most of that personal loans — and spent nearly $6,000, largely on advertising expenses. And a third Republican, former wrestler Dan Rodimer, raised about $7,000 over the period and spent nearly $42,000 on polling, advertising and consultants. (Rodimer loaned his campaign more than $157,000 during the last reporting period.)

The Democrat favored to win the primary is former Assemblywoman Marilyn Dondero Loop, who raised nearly $24,000 over the last few months, including a $5,000 check from AFSCME, and spent about $21,000.

State Senate District 20

Republican Assemblyman Keith Pickard is spending big in his bid to replace state Sen. Michael Roberson in this Henderson district. He raised almost $18,000 this period and spent nearly $40,000, with nearly all of that going to Advanced Micro Targeting for consulting-related expenses.

His main primary opponent, U.S. Army combat veteran Byron Brooks, raised only $4,200 and has spent no money.

Meanwhile, the Democratic-caucus backed candidate, Julie Pazina, brought in nearly $18,000 over the spent and spent a little under $27,000, entirely on advertising. Former Democratic Assemblyman Paul Aizley is also running for the seta, bringing in no money this period and spending $6,800 on advertising of a $10,000 loan he gave himself in the last period.

Assembly District 33

Republican Assemblyman John Ellison, who is facing a Republican primary challenge from Elko Mayor Chris Johnson, raised an additional $48,000 over the last several weeks, including $10,000 from MGM Resorts and $10,000 from High Desert Gold Corp. He also received $3,000 from Barrick, $1,500 from the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce, $1,000 from Anheuser Busch and $2,000 from the Nevada Realtor PAC.

Ellison spent about $13,000 over that same time period, largely on advertising, special event and staff related expenses.

Johnson only raised $700 this period and spent about $13,000, entirely on advertising.

Assembly District 36

Brothel owner Dennis Hof pumped $100,200 in personal loans into his campaign over the last several weeks and has received another $1,000 in other donations for a rural district that includes Pahrump. He has spent a little less than $74,000 over the same time period, largely on advertising- and special event-related expenses.

Republican Assemblyman James Oscarson, who is defending his seat from Hof, only raised about $15,000 over the same time period, including $1,000 from the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Researchers of America, $2,500 from Valley Electric and $1,000 from Barrick. He spent a little less than $32,000 over the same time period.

Assembly Leadership

Assembly Republican Leader Jim Wheeler brought in $21,000, including $15,000 from the Las Vegas Sands and its affiliated properties, $2,500 from Switch, $1,000 from NV Energy and $2,000 from Barrick. Democratic Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson raised $25,540 over the same period, including $5,000 from the Las Vegas Police Protective Association, $3,500 from the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters and $2,000 from AT&T.

Clark County District Attorney

A group with ties to billionaire liberal donor George Soros that’s attempting to boost a challenger to incumbent Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson reported raising more than $1.2 million, all from a single source.

Nevada Law & Justice PAC, which has run ads attacking Wolfson and boosting the candidacy of longtime criminal defense attorney Robert Langford, reported spending more than $414,000 over the nearly three-week reporting period and raising $1.2 million from a group called “Law & Justice PAC.”

The PAC itself is registered to Whitney Tymas, president of the national political nonprofit Justice & Safety PAC and has previously served as treasurer for other groups backed by Soros.

Another Nevada-based PAC running ads in the primary race, “Peoples’ PAC,” reported raising more than $300,000 ahead of the primary, almost all from the San Francisco based “Accountable Justice Action Fund,” a 501(c)(4) nonprofit dedicated to supporting candidates opposed to mass incarceration. It reported spending more than $467,000 over the reporting period, primarily on advertisements.

Because both Langford and Wolfson are Democrats and because no one else filed to run for the seat, the winner of the June 12 primary will automatically assume the office without having to advance to the general election.

Langford reported raising just over $23,000 over the fundraising period, and spent slightly more than $29,000 over the fundraising period. Wolfson reported raising just over $26,000, while spending more than $262,000 over the fundraising period, primarily on advertising.

Another group affiliated with Soros, the Open Society Policy Center, gave $500,000 to a PAC set up to combat a ballot question seeking to ban sanctuary cities in Nevada.
