Friday News Roundup

  • The Tahoe papers have had several reports on the lack of affordable housing around Tahoe. Today, the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza takes a closer look at a young couple who are just not able to live of their paychecks in Truckee. (Link)
  • The Nevada Appeal has an AP story about the Titus-Gibson race focusing on who's the "real" Democrat. Gibson's really trying to get that label by criticising Bush for his veto on stem cell research. Slamming Bush these days, that's just so Republican. (Link)
  • Kathy Augustine might have been able to win the primary for State Treasurer writes Molly Ball of the Las Vegas Review-Journal and she doesn't think it's unlikely that she might still win. And I tend to agree. In that case the Republicans would have to nominate someone else. Either way, it looks like Augustine's death might mean two Democrats winning in November since there might also be a backlash against the Republican candidate for Controller who was just nominated by the Governor to fill out Augustine's term.

  • So, Goverwannabe Jim Gibbons has his ads out which exclaim: "From Iraq to Carson City to Washington, Jim Gibbons has kept fighting." Fighting for what, exactly? The Review-Journal. (Link)
  • The LA Times has an AP report on the possibility of Nevada getting a Democratic caucus slot right behind Iowa and before New Hampshire for the Presidential Elections. That would be the best thing that could happen to the Democratic candidates in Nevada since every candidate would try to make nice with them, meaning giving a lot of money to them. (Link)
