The gist: This new 30-second ad features Laxalt’s wife, Jaime, who says, “I’m sure glad this race is almost over.”
She lists some of her husband’s accomplishments as attorney general, including working “with both parties to fix the rape kit problem that others had ignored.” The initiative was boosted by a federal grant that helped numerous states address backlogs of untested sexual assault evidence kits and was disbursed around the beginning of Laxalt’s term.
She also says he protected veterans and prosecuted elder abuse and sex traffickers. Laxalt’s office has highlighted its prosecution of a former UNLV football player, who was originally charged with the crime of sex trafficking but pleaded guilty to lesser charges, as well as a 2015 case that was the first such sex trafficking conviction out of the attorney general’s office.
“As governor, I know he’ll make our future, economy and education better,” she says. “He’ll keep us safe. I married a good man.”
