    Note some of the donations to Reid came in 1986, 1989 and 1995. Reagan, in 1986, calledd Reid a tax and speend liberal and said Reid voted against him and his policies more than Ted Kennedy. Her explaination for the donations is a lie.

  2. The TRUTH about Tarkanian's F Rating with the NRA

    There has been a controversy surrounding Danny Tarkanian and his stance on the 2nd Amendment. Danny is in full support of the 2nd Amendment and will defend it as your Senator. There are those who are trying to paint Danny as against the amendment as well as the NRA. This is simply not even close to the truth. His official position on the 2nd Amendment is as follows:
    “The Second Amendment guarantees citizens the fundamental right to bear arms. I was happy to see that right affirmed in District of Columbia v Heller. I also agree with two-thirds of the State Attorneys General that this fundamental right should apply to state and local governments as well and I hope the U.S. Supreme Court decides the upcoming case correctly. I also agree with Congress’ recent vote to respect concealed weapons permits across state lines if the individual complies with local concealed weapons laws.”
    This controversy has been pushed by the Lowden campaign . Here is the real truth. All information can be confirmed online. During the Secretary of State election Danny Tarkanian had a volunteer named Dan Burdish. Burdish, on his own, contacted the Brady people and asked for an endorsement and robo-call. When the call took place the NRA immediately dropped Danny’s rating. Burdish even admitted in the Washington Post (Dec. 16, 2009) article “Danny, as far as I know, knew nothing about it”. Unfortunately by the time Danny found out about the robo-call it was too late. The NRA will not issue new candidate ratings until later this year. For the record Mr. Burdish is now Sue Lowden’s PAID Political Director. Wonder how this story made it to the Washington Post in December??? Below are links to the articles, that when followed, show that Danny was not involved in the robo-call. He only was the one who was affected by it. There is also a link to an article about Burdish.
    As a side note, Mr. Burdish has tried to make the claim that Danny’s mother Lois Tarkanian asked him to set up the call. THIS IS NOT TRUE. We spoke with Danny on this very issue. Danny has asked his mother about this. He says “my mother has swore to me she had no involvement with the Brady endorsement and never discussed it with Burdish”. Furthermore, according to Danny Lois has never, in three campaigns, ever been a part of any strategy discussions or decisions. Burdish has motive to lay it off on someone else.

    For the sake of argument let’s say it was true. Lois Tarkanian, according to Burdish, came to him asking for help setting up the robo-call. Burdish has the following experience: Co-Owner of Car Doctor in Las Vegas , Head of the Nevadans for Tax Restraint PAC, Executive Director of the Nevada Republican Party and currently Sue Lowden’s Political Director. With all of this experience he should have known a robo-call endorsement from the Brady people would be a death blow. Any conservative worth their salt would. But instead of taking that information to Danny he moved on his own to set up the call (remember Burdish was quoted as saying “Danny, as far as I know, knew nothing about it”). Logically it makes no sense to blame Danny. It is obvious that Burdish somehow used his pull as the former Executive Director of the Nevada GOP to get this done. Burdish is scrambling. He knows he screwed up and has no justification for his error except for ignorance.
