Las Vegas, NV - Today, both U.S. Congressman Mark Amodei (R-NV, 02) and U.S. Congressman Joe Heck (R-NV, 03) endorsed Adam Laxalt in his campaign for Attorney General. Previous to his service as a Nevada State Assemblyman and State Senator, Amodei served as a lawyer in the United States Army Judge Advocate General Corps. Heck, also a former Nevada State Senator, is a physician and currently holds the rank of Colonel in the United States Army Reserves.
“The Laxalt family has given more to our state than nearly any other family in our history,” said Mark Amodei. “For over 100 years, as descendants from immigrant Basque parents, the Laxalt tradition has been to make Nevada a better place over the entire fabric of our communities. In such endeavors as agriculture, teaching, hospitals, churches, journalism, public service, and literature, the legacy endures and continues. Adam has already done his part for our country and Nevada and he will undoubtedly continue this great legacy of service for Nevada as your Attorney General.”
“As a fellow Iraq War Veteran, I can tell you that volunteering to serve in Iraq as a Naval Officer during the 2006 surge took great courage," said Joe Heck. “Selflessly serving during that difficult time is a testament to Adam's commitment to country and community. I know he will make a great Attorney General.”
One week ago today, Adam Laxalt formally announced his candidacy for Attorney General. Since then, Laxalt has earned the support of many other Nevada leaders, including Governor Brian Sandoval, U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV), former State Treasurer Patty Cafferata, former Republican National Committee Chairman Frank Fahrenkopf, his grandfather, former Nevada Governor and U.S. Senator Paul Laxalt, former Governor Bob List and former National Committeeman Joe Brown.
“I’m honored to earn the endorsements of both Mark Amodei and Joe Heck,” Adam Laxalt said. “Both of these gentlemen have served our nation and our state with distinction, and continue to be strong advocates for all Nevadans in Congress.”
