Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said he is confident that former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R) will soon announce a challenge to first-term Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D) in a state that continues to produce close Democratic wins.
Mr. Laxalt lost the 2018 Governor’s race to then-Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak (D), 49-45%. In November, with turnout up over 430,000 people from the midterm election, President Biden defeated former President Trump, 50-48%. If Republicans are to flip the Senate majority, the Nevada race will have to be part of their national victory matrix.
