"The first thing they (Nevada Republicans) should do is get rid of their state chairman. He is not capable of running this operation any more. I mean Michael McDonald, primarily."
Sig Rogich, current president of the Rogich Communications Group.
"It is going to be a tough race. A sitting, incumbent Democratic governor. And that (Nevada Democratic) party has a history. They've handed Donald Trump a 100,000-vote loss in Clark County -- twice."
U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City
"It was also frustrating because the LCB defended the Democrats' position, which ended up being wrong, right? So we've got the Supreme Court that finds it wrong and then the Republicans, to fight it, had to actually raise money to do that." State Sen. Heidi Gansert, R-Reno, speaking of a legal fight over a bill that raised revenues without a two-thirds majority of lawmakers
"I think there has just been a lack of enforcement on the illegal side. And rightfully so. When we have limited resources, it is probably not the No. 1 issue. But I think it is important that the Cannabis Compliance Board should really get into that space and make sure we are trying to crack down on those (black market dealers)." Steve Yeager, Assembly Judiciary chairman
"What a debate like the death penalty shows you is that, unfortunately, we are human beings and we are capable of doing really awful things to one another."
Steven Yeager, chairman, Assembly Judiciary Committee
"It doesn't really create a hole. It just shows that they stole money from people when they didn't have the authority to do so."
State Sen. James Settelmeyer, on impact of Senate Republican lawsuit against two revenue bills passed by Democrats in the 2019 Legislature without the constitutionally-mandated two-thirds majority
"We are becoming more aware of the diversity of God's creation. God didn't make all roses. He didn't make all daffodils. He has a bunch of different types of flowers. There are different types of grass, not one type of tree." State Sen. Pat Spearman, D-NLV
"You know, I don't know what the 2022 election is going to be like. However, there is a chance you could be in the majority and on Appropriations, which would put you -- I don't know if the retirements (for members of Appropriations Committee) are there yet or not -- but could put you up first for a committee chairmanship. Which you know, is a good place to be in terms of making sure we get policies right and also taking care of Nevada."
Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City
