Former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt defeats war veteran Sam Brown in Nevada Republican senate primary

Former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt will face Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto in a battleground state race that could be pivotal in Republicans’ efforts to win back control of the Senate.

Laxalt had 56% of the vote compared to first-time Senate candidate Adam Brown’s 33% when the Associated Press called the race.

Laxalt, who served as the state’s attorney general from 2015-2019, was considered the front-runner in the race and was backed by both former President Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis

Brown, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan who sustained serious injuries from a roadside bomb during a 2008 deployment, vowed to defend conservative principles in Washington, D.C., but said he would also advocate for Nevada as its representative in the Senate.
