Nevada Round-up

Senate

  • American Crossroads has made another huge ($4.2 million) media buy targeting close Senate races in eight states — Nevada, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Pennsylvania and Washington.

  • Sharron Angle charmed at least one liberty-minded reporter during last week’s visit to southern California, where she went to make friends and collect checks. In addition to her much-publicized L.A. fundraiser, Angle appeared before local business leaders and the Lincoln Club of Orange County.

  • A Nevada pundit pens a fun column featuring an Alice in Wonderland tea party metaphor. Potential spoiler Scott Ashjian plays the part of the Mad Hatter; Harry Reid is the Cheshire Cat; and you can probably guess who plays Alice.

  • A Las Vegas television station notes the new FOX Senate poll shows zero percent of voters are undecided.

House

  • Democrat incumbent Titus is trailing by just three points — 47 percent to 44 — while just 6 percent of likely voters are undecided, says a new The Hill/ANGA poll. The survey also shows Heck holds a 57 to 33 percent lead among independents and that Titus trails by 10 points among male voters. 

  • NV-3 was found to be one of the few districts where Democrats and Republicans share equal enthusiasm about voting: 82 percent of Democrats said they are “very passionate” about voting, while 84 percent of Republicans said the same. 

  • Healthcare reform is hurting the reelection chances of freshman Democrats in the House, including Titus, according to another set of questions asked in the new The Hill/ANGA poll. Almost two-thirds of independents in the district want the law scrapped. 

  • Mitt Romney will be at an event in Las Vegas tonight to show support for Joe Heck. Battle ‘10 will be there and will have a write up tomorrow.

  • The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is targeting Dems in key districts and is up with an ad going after Titus:

Governor

  • Rory Reid and Brian Sandoval will participate in one of three scheduled gubernatorial debates tomorrow night. Battle ‘10 will watch and report the results.

  • Reid will make a push for more money this Friday at McFadden’s at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

  • A reader tells Jay Nordlinger, “Harry Reid doesn’t have to go to New Mexico to hear an explanation of why Hispanics can be Republicans. Brian Sandoval, a Hispanic Republican, is going to thrash Reid’s own son in the Nevada governor’s race. He won’t even have to make a long-distance phone call.”
