Focus: Democratic gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak

Who’s paying for it: Sisolak’s campaign

Size of buy: It’s part of a six-figure ad buy.

When it started: Oct. 30

Where it’s running: The ad is appearing on broadcast and cable television, but the campaign did not disclose the markets where it’s running.

The gist: In this 30-second ad, Sisolak takes direct aim at his opponent, Republican Adam Laxalt — equating him to a bully who needs someone to stand up against him.

“Adam Laxalt would hurt Nevada families,” Sisolak says in the ad. “When Gov. Sandoval expanded Medicaid to cover 200,000 Nevadans, Laxalt opposed him. And when the governor increased funding for our schools, Laxalt opposed him again.”

Sisolak closes the ad by vowing to “stand up for Nevada” and work with both Democrats and Republicans to make forward progress.
