Election Lost

  • Ran for U.S. Senate Nevada, 2022

Previous Office(s) Held

  • Attorney General of Nevada

Executive Summary

As co-chair of Trump’s 2020 Nevada campaign, Laxalt played a crucial role in efforts to stop vote counting in Clark County, and later sued the secretary of state’s office over its alleged inability to keep non-citizens off state voter rolls. That lawsuit was eventually dismissed.

Laxalt has also long criticized the state’s vote-by-mail laws, which were expanded during the pandemic as a public safety measure. He alleged during a campaign speech in February that the policy change in 2020 amounted to state Democrats having “fundamentally altered our election” to give Joe Biden “a leg up.” He did not provide any evidence to support his claims.
