As expected, Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R) officially declared his gubernatorial candidacy yesterday and immediately assumes the favorite’s position. Mr. Laxalt now faces state Treasurer Dan Schwartz for the Republican nomination. A tough general election will follow in what is becoming one of the nation’s top swing states.
Democratic announced candidates include two Clark County Commissioners, Steve Sisolak and Chris Giunchigliani. Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) is ineligible to seek a third term.
