Adam Laxalt Launches U.S. Senate Campaign

RENO, NV – Fourth-generation Nevadan Adam Laxalt today announced the launch of his campaign for the United States Senate. The former Nevada Attorney General and former United States Navy and Iraq Veteran took a bold, results-driven approach to serving the people of Nevada. 
 
In his U.S. Senate campaign kickoff video, Laxalt spotlights the stakes of the battle to keep our country free: 
 
“The radical left, rich elites, woke corporations, academia, Hollywood, and the media – they’re taking over America. That’s your empire, right there, telling lie after lie, making excuses for chaos and violence, censoring truth that doesn’t fit their agenda, amplifying anger and envy, they demand control. Ruthlessly enforcing conformity. Canceling any who stand in their way,” said Laxalt. “But the truth is, we must stand in their way because it’s not just about us. We owe it to our kids and generations to come. I’m ready to fight for what is right. That’s what Americans do. That’s the legacy we have a duty to protect.”
 
As Attorney General, one of Laxalt’s top priorities was pursuing justice for victims of sexual assault, which he did by taking on Nevada’s horrendous backlog of more than 8,000 untested sexual-assault evidence kits. He also fought for victims of human trafficking and secured the first human trafficking conviction in the history of his office. In addition, Laxalt led efforts to protect Nevada’s seniors, creating a financial fraud unit to address issues including abuse of the elderly and guardianship exploitation.
 
A former Naval Officer and Iraq Veteran, serving in Iraq detainee operations, Laxalt’s team was in charge of more than 20,000 detainees during the surge, keeping America’s troops and citizens safer by assisting with the detention and prosecution of thousands of war criminals and terrorists. For his exemplary service, Laxalt was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal and the Iraq Campaign Medal. His unit was also awarded the Joint Meritorious Unit Award. While on Active Duty, Laxalt served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney and as an Assistant Professor of Law in the Leadership, Ethics, and Law Department at the U.S. Naval Academy.

SCRIPT:

ADAM LAXALT: “My kids can’t get enough of Star Wars. We’ve watched all 9 movies, twice…and counting. They love it because it’s a story about right and wrong. Good versus evil.
 
“In our house, and at our church, we talk a lot about what’s right and what’s wrong. And right now, it seems like the wrong side is winning.
 
“The radical left, rich elites, woke corporations, academia, Hollywood, and the media – they’re taking over America. That’s your empire, right there, telling lie after lie, making excuses for chaos and violence, censoring truth that doesn’t fit their agenda, amplifying anger and envy, they demand control. Ruthlessly enforcing conformity. Canceling any who stand in their way.
 
“But the truth is, we must stand in their way because it’s not just about us. We owe it to our kids and generations to come.
 
“My name is Adam Laxalt. I’m ready to fight for what is right. That’s what Americans do. That’s the legacy we have a duty to protect.
 
“After 9/11, I volunteered to serve in the Navy. I served in Iraq during the Surge together with other men and women of all races and backgrounds. We were all Americans doing our part, defending this great nation from those determined to destroy it.
 
“As your Attorney General, I fought for our Constitution and the American way of life. I stood up for victims. Victims of rape and human trafficking. Victims of guardianship abuse and the opioid crisis.
 
“But the battle to keep our country free doesn’t end. If anything, the stakes are higher now than they’ve ever been in our lifetime. That’s why I’m running for Senate. 
 
“This won’t be an easy battle. We’re David, they’re Goliath. We’re the rebels, they’re the Empire. But we are America. We are the good guys. And for all our kids, we’re not going to let the bad guys win.
 
“I’m Adam Laxalt, and I approve this message.”
