Members of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Adam Laxalt’s family have publicly endorsed his Democratic opponent, The Nevada Independent reports.

Fourteen members of Laxalt’s family signed a three-page letter endorsing incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto in the race for Nevada’s Senate seat, saying that they believe Masto “possesses a set of qualities that clearly speak of what we like to call ‘Nevada grit,’” adding that “no further comments will be made, as we believe this letter speaks for itself.”

“Catherine is a model of the ‘Nevada grit’ that we so often use to describe our Nevada forefathers,” the family wrote. “Her entire career is not a simple “sound-bite” that merely speaks of supporting Nevada. Rather, her entire career demonstrates years of bold actions that she has taken as an authentic advocate of Nevada. In so many ways, Senator Catherine Cortez Masto exemplifies what it simply means to be a Nevadan. She has learned from her home state. She has fought for it. She is proud of it. As a proud Nevada family, we are honored to endorse Catherine Cortez Masto for the prestigious national role of U.S. Senator for Nevada.”

This is the second time Laxalt’s family has rejected his political aspirations. During his 2018 run for governor, 12 of his family members publicly opposed him, saying he “leveraged and exploited the family name.”

A poll from The Nevada Independent/OH Predictive Insights found Laxalt leading the race with 45 percent to 43 percent, with a 3.6 percent margin of error.
