SMP Launches New Ad Blasting Adam Laxalt for Putting Corporate Allies and Donors Ahead of Nevada
Former Republican state legislator and local small business owner calls out Laxalt’s corrupt, self-serving politics
Washington, D.C. – Following the primary election earlier this week, Senate Majority PAC is launching its first 2022 general election television ad in Nevada blasting Adam Laxalt’s long record of corrupt, self-serving politics. The details were first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
In the new spot, Patty — a local small business owner and former Republican legislator who worked with Laxalt in the state government — calls out Laxalt for putting his allegiance to corporate allies and donors ahead of hardworking Nevadans. From 2014 to 2018, Laxalt received more than $1.8 million in corporate donations.
“The brutal Republican primary reminded voters what they disliked about Adam Laxalt during his failed campaign for Governor and his tenure as a corrupt Attorney General — he’s a power-hungry politician running for office to serve himself and his special interest donors, not Nevada,” said JB Poersch, President of Senate Majority PAC. “Voters deserve to know the truth: Laxalt has been busy making millions at a law firm that represents Chevron and defending Big Oil companies squeezing working families, all while Nevadans are paying the price at the pump. Adam Laxalt’s dishonest, self-serving politics have hurt too many Nevada families already and that’s why they’ll reject him again this November.”
The six-figure ad campaign will reach voters beginning today on broadcast and cable in the Las Vegas and Reno markets. View the ad here.
“Patty” Ad Transcript:
“My name is Patty.
I run a construction company here in Las Vegas.
I used to work with Adam Laxalt in the state government.
His allegiance is to big corporations and his donors.
They plow money into his campaign…
…they can reap the benefits.
That’s just how Adam Laxalt works and it’s wrong for Nevada.
I believe Adam Laxalt is about Adam Laxalt, not the people of Nevada.
And I say that as a former Republican.”
