Laxalt Reports Raising Nearly $2 Million For Governor Race

Attorney General and front-runner for the Republican nomination for governor Adam Laxalt has reported raising almost $1.9 million so far in 2018 and spending about $730,000.

Laxalt's main competitor for the GOP nomination, state Treasurer Dan Schwartz, reported raising about $66,000 — most of which was a $60,000 loan from the candidate himself.

Schwartz spent $419,000 during the first four and a half months of the year, and ended 2017 with at least $247,000, according to his last campaign report filed in January.

Early voting in the race for governor starts Saturday and runs through June 8.
