Adam Laxalt runs as '51st Senate seat' to block Biden

Adam Laxalt isn't overpromising. The Nevada Republican, his party's leading candidate for Senate in the Silver State, offered a modest menu of agenda items he plans to pursue should the GOP win a majority of seats in the chamber in the midterm elections. Topping the list? Using control of the floor, and key Senate committees, to conduct aggressive oversight of President Joe Biden and his administration. Laxalt also would encourage the Republican majority he hopes to usher in to look deeper into the Russia investigation that consumed Washington during most of former President Donald Trump's term.

By backing Adam Laxalt, campaign co-chairs tarnish their reputations

CARSON CITY–Politics are polarized and elections are nationalized, to the point that qualifications, merits, or flaws of people seeking House and Senate seats have become incidental to party affiliation. If one party is going to win, it’ll win, it seems, whether that party’s candidate is a competent and accomplished public servant or a grifting carnival barker.
