The Senate Leadership Fund congratulated Adam Laxalt for winning the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Nevada:
“Adam Laxalt ran a disciplined primary campaign uniting the Republican Party and he is well-positioned to defeat Catherine Cortez Masto this fall. The cost of living in Nevada is out of control, the border is wide open, and Nevadans feel less safe in their communities as a result of the failed Biden-Cortez Masto agenda. Cortez Masto can’t escape her lockstep support of these policies harming Nevadans’ quality of life, and we are confident Nevada will fire her in November.” -SLF President Steven Law
SLF previously announced it has reserved $15.1 million in fall advertising for the Nevada Senate race.
Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto votes with Joe Biden 95.5% of the time according to FiveThirtyEight. Recent estimations by election prognosticators have labeled Cortez Masto the most endangered Democratic Senator in the country. Cortez Masto’s lockstep voting record with Joe Biden includes:
- Supporting the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan economists agree has directly contributed to inflation.
- Repeatedly voting to undermine American energy production, leading to a gas price spike in Nevada that is the second-highest in the country.
- Repeatedly voting to undermine border security, leading to a surge of illegal immigration on Nevada’s doorstep.
