LAS VEGAS, NV – Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Adam Laxalt released the following statement after a new poll from 8 News Now/Emerson College Polling/The Hill showed Laxalt leading incumbent Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto, 42% to 41%. "This poll captures what we are seeing on the ground here in Nevada. Between surging inflation, the effects of an open border, and record-high gas prices, Nevadans are fed up with the failed Biden/Cortez Masto agenda and are ready to make a change. Cortez Masto and her friends in DC can spend all the money they want attacking me and trying to rehabilitate her image, but none of it will stop the momentum of our grassroots campaign," said Laxalt. Since January 1st, Cortez Masto has spent $35,469,631 on TV, broadcast, satellite, digital, and radio advertising in an attempt to rehabilitate her image with Nevada voters and discredit Laxalt's campaign. However, even as incumbent, Cortez Masto has yet to poll above 50%.
