Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R) has had the early Republican gubernatorial field mostly to himself this year, but that may soon change. State Treasurer Dan Schwartz is confirming that he will file a gubernatorial exploratory committee in August, with the expectation of kicking off an official campaign for Governor in September. Mr. Schwartz was elected Treasurer in 2014, scoring a 51-41% victory margin. He is eligible to seek re-election, but looks to be eschewing that opportunity for the gubernatorial run.
