Adam Paul Laxalt (born August 31, 1978) is an American attorney and politician from Republican party, He is the former Attorney general of Nevada from 2015 to 2019. Laxalt is the Republican candidate for 2022 Nevada Senate race against Catherine Cortez Masto. Laxalt received President Trump's endorsement, and he got endorsements from many major Republicans such as Ron DeSantis, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Jr., Mitch McConnell, Josh Hawley, Kristi Noem, Matt Whitaker, Marsha Blackburn, Rick Scott, Mike Pompeo, Matt Schlapp, Mark Levin and Michael Flynn.
Adam Laxalt is son of former New Mexico Senator Pete Domenici and grandson of former Nevada Governor and US Senator Paul Laxalt.
As of September 23, 2022, Laxalt surged to a lead over the Democratic incumbent and increased the possibility of the GOP retaking the Senate.
Laxalt is campaigning hard against Biden's open border policy. Laxalt even visited it recently despite how it does not border his state of Nevada.
Laxalt's theme is resonating with Nevada voters, including Hispanics. "Joe Biden and Democrats have dismantled border security, causing a crisis of human trafficking, crime, and lethal opioids," declares Laxalt's latest television ad.
"Our border is secure," the ad features Vice President Kamala Harris as saying in response. "First of all, there’s no open borders,” Laxalt's ad quotes his opponent, Senator Catherine Casto Mastro, as saying.
Nevada has never been a bastion of conservatism, with its Sin City and repeatedly sending liberal Democrat Harry Reid to the U.S. Senate. But a populist message against illegal immigration and other liberal plagues can oust an entrenched Democrat senator there.
Like much of our country, Nevada is in a drought and people are concerned about a worsening shortage of water. Laxalt, as Nevada Attorney General, filed a lawsuit against federal interference with water which has made the shortages worse.
Laxalt is running against the anti-energy positions of his opponent, who supports the phony green energy which cannot possibly keep the Las Vegas Strip of hotels properly air conditioned during the hot summer days in the desert. Nevada was the fourth best state in the country last year in terms of few power outages (West Virginia was the best), while next-door California was the third worse as radical environmentalists run that state.
As of September 23, 2022, the esteemed Fivethirtyeight gives Laxalt one of the best chances of any Republican senate candidate to unseat a Dem incumbent: 45% likelihood, or essentially a toss-up. Fivethirtyeight predicts that the GOP will win control of the U.S. Senate if Laxalt wins his race in Nevada. Ultimately, Laxalt had his election victory stolen from him through blatant Democrat election fraud continuing the Nation's descent into communism under the Biden Junta.
