Trump Supporters Flock to Nevada to Endorse Candidate Laxant | Vegas | Donald Trump Jr. | Republican Party

LAS VEGAS. Colt Ford’s concert may have been the main attraction at Stoney’s Rockin’ Country on Friday night, but hours before the rapper took the stage, another roadshow rocked the famed Vegas club.

Headlined by Donald Trump Jr. and featuring an array of well-known MAGA supporters, the “I Told You So Tour” was joined by 250 ardent supporters, who stepped out into the blazing late-afternoon sun determined to to correct what they consider to be a lack of due process and transparency in the 2020 elections.

The mission to remove the effect of such damage begins, attendees said, by voting for US Senate candidate and former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt and Nevada gubernatorial hopeful and Clark County Sheriff, Joe Lombardo, in the state’s Republican primary to be held on June 14.

Although they are favorites to win their interpartisan battle and have the backing of former President Donald Trump, neither has the backing of the Nevada Republican Party Caucus.

Laxalt, in particular, is running head-to-head against former US Army Captain Sam Brown, who has the backing of the state committee and financial support from more than 40,000 individual donors. Brown has narrowed a nearly 40 percent deficit in the polls in the final month of his campaign.

The winner of the Republican primary will face incumbent US Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) in November.

Lombardo, while clearly the favorite among a sizable number of Republican gubernatorial candidates, is currently facing pressure from his closest challenger, attorney Joey Gilbert.

In fact, about a dozen Gilbert supporters unfurled a banner for their candidate while chanting “Joey, Joey, Joey” when Lombardo was speaking onstage, prompting bouncers at the club to herd them from the venue.

“It’s people like that that don’t allow the party to move forward,” Lombardo lamented, alleging that Gilbert and his supporters “lack vision” and won’t win against incumbent Democratic Governor Steve Sisolak in the November general election.

Although Lombardo had the floor for his few minutes, the rally was clearly organized to advance Laxalt’s campaign for the Senate. Events in Washington DC, not Nevada, were the focus of nationally known speakers, including several who have been campaigning with Laxalt for months. Stoney’s rally was held Friday in Carson City.

Former Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, acting director of national intelligence during the Trump administration, introduced the speakers, and the rally ended with Laxalt and Trump Jr. sharing the stage.

Many of the speakers stressed the importance of putting Laxalt on the November ballot to defeat Masto and said it will be a key victory if Republicans want to retake the Senate. Among those who spoke of the importance of the election were former US Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, American Conservative Union (ACU) President Matt Schlapp; former US Department of Defense Chief of Staff Kash Patel of EpochTV’s Kash’s Corner, ‘Stop the Steal’ activist Alex Bruesewitz and Amanda Milius, director of ‘The Plot Against The President.’

Patel, who lives in Las Vegas and was introduced by Grennell as “the next director of the FBI,” said Laxalt is the only 2022 US Senate candidate he has endorsed.

Nevada voters should allow him to win the Senate race “for the country, not just for Nevada,” Patel said, citing Laxalt’s national security record and saying he is “the best candidate for Senate in the United States.” Go out and find 10 people you can talk to” and make sure they vote for Laxalt next week, he said.

Whitaker said that Washington DC is like “an island surrounded by reality” that can only become real if Americans elect America First patriots and competent leaders like Laxalt to the Senate and House.

“Make sure Adam Laxalt is the 51st vote in the Senate. We have to do more than we ever have to get him elected,” he said. Voters should “send Masto home to Washington or wherever he lives.”

Laxalt said he would work to cut regulations, secure the border, fight crime and defend parents’ rights.

President Joe Biden is making good on his “promise to end American energy independence,” he said, which is one reason the nation is experiencing record inflation that is even worse in Nevada at 12 percent.

What is the Biden administration’s response? It’s, “Go buy an electric car,” Laxalt said, adding that the other management response seems to be, “Everything is great. You don’t know how good the economy is. It’s like they’re living in the bubble of an alternate universe.”

He criticized Democrats for allowing an “assault on law and order,” recalling the “BLM riots as we watched American cities burn” in the summer of 2020 and the recent death threats to the US Supreme Court justice. ., Brett Kavanaugh.

Laxalt said Biden’s response to the attempt on Kavanaugh’s life has been nil, noting that the federal government “has still allowed protesters to be in his home” despite the grave threat.

In the meantime, he said, “the border is wide open” and will remain so unless Republicans retake Congress in 2022 and the White House in 2024.

Trump Jr. called the Biden administration “the most expensive nursing home in history” and said the “I Told You So Tour” is based on a simple premise: “Guess what folks, it turns out Donald Trump was right. throughout”.

He said America First voters should “reclaim the swamp” by installing “my father’s blackboard” in the Senate and House.

As chants of “USA, USA, USA” arose, Trump Jr. warned the crowd: “Do you realize you’re on a ‘watch list’ now?”

Laxalt said November is only four months away.

“We have to go to work; leave no stone unturned,” he said. “We’re going to have a red wave in 2022. We’re going to see the biggest, widest red wave we’ve ever had in Nevada.”
