When asked whether term-limited Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) “planned to endorse favored Republican gubernatorial candidate” and state Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R), “who has stated one of his goals as governor will be to repeal the Commerce Tax spearheaded by Sandoval, he said he ‘hadn’t endorsed anybody.’ Sandoval said he will wait to see what the candidates have to say but that he would not ‘support a candidate who seeks to undo what we’ve done the past seven years.”

“Asked whether he considers repealing the Commerce Tax undoing what he has done over the past seven years, Sandoval said yes. He said repealing the Commerce Tax would be ‘devastating’ for Nevada. Asked whether he could support someone who would devastate the state, Sandoval said no.” (Nevada Independent)
