Cause and effect

In an interview with the New York Times, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval—who is not seeking reelection—responded to Republican Adam Laxalt’s anti-Sandoval campaign for governor by saying he “won’t support a candidate that is going to undo anything that I put forward.”

Laxalt opposes the Affordable Care Act, which Sandoval has cooperated with and for which he set up state administrative procedures instead of leaving Nevada’s applicants to a federal process. And Laxalt also says he will try to repeal the increased business taxes Sandoval used to fund increased education spending in the state.
