The rurals were supposed to Laxalt’s bedrock voters, but ever since June 2018 Laxalt has been under water in Nye County with base voters. Laxalt’s troubles in Nye County started in June following Republican Assemblyman James Oscarson’s loss to Dennis Hof in the Republican primary. Laxalt refused to endorse Brothel owner Dennis Hof. Laxalt’s refusal to endorse Hof spurred Nye County Commissioner Donna Cox to retract her endorsement of Laxalt and openly endorse Ryan Bundy in June. Hof died suddenly last weak throwing the whole situation into a tail spin. In addition, Laxalt has been under fire in Nye County after his office defended a lawsuit in court against the Nevada State Water Chief Engineer Jason King who issued order 1293 taking water entitlements away from land owners in Nye County. The 11,000 well owners in Nye County are now up in arms against Laxalt attacking him in radio ads and billboards over his stance on order 1293A. Nye County has more than 27,000 voters Laxalt desperately needs to hold on to if he is going to defeat Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak. Bundy has campaigned hard on water and land issues across the state especially in Nye County. If Bundy takes just 5% of the votes, Sisolak could win the election.
