Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak (D) announced his gubernatorial candidacy yesterday, becoming the first major prospective contender from either party to come forward and declare. The move had been expected. Attorney General Adam Laxalt, also unannounced, is viewed to be the leading Republican candidate. In late May, Remington Research tested a hypothetical Laxalt-Sisolak gubernatorial race and found the Republican leading the Democratic local official, 46-37%. Mr. Sisolak was just re-elected to a final term on the Clark County Commission in November. He would not be eligible to seek re-election in 2020.
