Adam Laxalt Makes Big Lie Push with Discount Trump

In a final attempt to prove his loyalty to Donald Trump, Adam Laxalt will welcome Donald Trump Jr. to the campaign trail today. Throughout his campaign, Laxalt has put his embrace of Trump and the Big Lie front and center, campaigning with the defeated former president and nearly all of his lackeys. Last time Jr. campaigned with Laxalt he made it clear he was in Nevada to repay Laxalt for his efforts to overturn the 2020 election for his father

The “face of” the Big Lie in Nevada, Laxalt started raising doubts about the 2022 election just weeks after he announced his campaign for Senate. The New York Times later reported he was “laying detailed groundwork” for lawsuits to contest the election months before a single ballot was cast. 

Laxalt was the co-chair of Trump’s 2020 campaign and orchestrated failed lawsuit after failed lawsuit to stop a peaceful transfer of power. He has centered his campaign around his allegiance to Trump and old lies about the 2020 election and employs an insurrectionist as a senior campaign operative.

Statement from Nevada Democratic Victory Spokesperson Olivia Davis: 

“Adam Laxalt campaigning with Don Jr. only reminds Nevadans of his baseless attempts to overturn the 2020 election. They rejected the Trump-Laxalt agenda before, and will do so again in 14 days.”
