Brown, Rosen to square off in Nevada Senate race



(The Center Square) – Republican Sam Brown and incumbent U.S. Sen. Jacky Rosen both won their respective primary races on Tuesday, setting the stage for a competitive general election in Nevada for a seat that will likely be key to controlling the Senate.

Brown, a U.S. Army veteran with former President Donald Trump’s endorsement, won 59.6% of the vote in the Republican primary, according to unofficial results from the Nevada secretary of state. Rosen, who was first elected in 2018, won 91.7% of the vote in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.

The seat is among those that Republicans could flip to regain control of the Senate. The Cook Political Report rates the race as a “toss up.”

“It’s on to November, where we’re going to bring back accountability to D.C., we’re going to restore good leadership, and we’re going to have hope – something to hope for,” Brown said in a video statement posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Rosen criticized Brown’s Trump connection in a written statement.

“My opponent is a MAGA extremist who will say anything to get elected,” she said. “Sam Brown’s far-right agenda of banning abortion even in the case of rape or incest, phasing out Social Security and Medicare, abolishing the Department of Education, and reviving Yucca Mountain as a nuclear waste dump would be a disaster for Nevada and hardworking families across out state.”

A recent Fox News poll, conducted after Trump’s conviction in the hush money case, had Trump leading Biden 50% to 45% in a hypothetical matchup.

The Nevada Senate race is one of three seats Cook currently rates as a “toss up,” along with races in Montana and Ohio.
