Vice President Pence praised Sen. Dean Heller (R) and state Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R) at an event in Las Vegas on Thursday.

Pence: “I want to thank Senator Dean Heller for all he does for the men and women who wear the uniform here in the Silver State. He is a tireless advocate for Nellis Air Force Base and our armed forces, and we are all grateful for your outstanding leadership in our national defense. … Let me also say I’m grateful to be joined, as well, by a strong leader for Nevada and for Nellis Air Force Base, himself a seven-year veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, it’s an honor to be here with our attorney general, Adam Laxalt.” (release)

Earlier that day, he called both statewide candidates “great champions of Nevada” and Heller “a great, great champion of our armed forces, a great friend of mine from our days in Congress, and a tenacious advocate for everything about Nevada.” (release)

LAXALT’S LIKELY OPPONENT. The Clark County Education Association endorsed Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak (D), praising his “fierce commitment to resolve public education issues.” (Las Vegas Review-Journal)
