NRSC Chair Weighs in On Laxalt’s Lawsuits to Overturn the 2022 Election

Laxalt has consistently pushed for legal action to overturn the 2022 election if he loses

In Case You Missed It, National Republican Senatorial Committee Chair Rick Scott made his first public comments on corrupt politician Adam Laxalt’s plan to overturn the 2022 election.

As the “face of” the Big Lie in Nevada, Laxalt has centered his entire campaign on this conspiracy. He orchestrated failed lawsuit after failed lawsuit to stop the peaceful transfer of power in 2020.

Scott has disavowed Trump campaign claims of massive voter fraud in the 2020 election and emphasized Wednesday that President Joe Biden was fairly elected. Scott said Jan. 6 rioters should be prosecuted for actions that were disgraceful.

Meanwhile, Scott said the Jan. 6 committee hearings are irrelevant to voters and will not sway the upcoming elections. He said the midterm elections would hinge on inflation, rising costs of goods and the lack of baby formula…
