Laxalt now knows county names

Laxalt now knows ALL county names

Republican Adam Laxalt announced his candidacy for governor of Nevada on Nov. 1 and then set off on a 17-county tour of the state, not an easy task since Nevada has only 16 counties plus Carson City, the state capital.

Laxalt, drawing on his connections—his GOP grandfather, after serving two U.S. Senate terms, stayed in D.C. to become a corporate lawyer—raised so much money he scared other Republicans out of the race. Laxalt lived in D.C. himself until five years ago, when he moved to Nevada and ran successfully for attorney general.

Democrats Chris Giunchigliani and Steve Sisolak, meanwhile, will be spending a lot of money attacking each other in their primary.
