The United States Senate seat from Nevada is one of 35 that will be contested tonight as part of the 2022 midterm election.

Republican Adam Laxalt was the Attorney General that replaced Cortez-Masto, and is the grandson of former Nevada Governor and Senator Paul Laxalt. Previously served in the Navy’s JAG Corps from 2005 to 2010, and claimed there was large-scale fraud in Nevada’s 2020 election. Fourteen members of his politically-active family endorsed Cortez-Masto.
