The Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting that a national group aimed at electing Republican attorneys general across the country is targeting Nevada.
The Republican Attorneys General Association announced on Thursday that it raised more than $16 million in 2017, up about $3.5 million from the last off-year fundraising period in 2015.
RAGA is fully behind former assemblyman and former assistant attorney general Wes Duncan, although he has a primary opponent in Las Vegas attorney Craig Mueller.
On the Democrat side, Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford is considered the favorite to win the nomination and move on the general election, where the winner will replace Adam Laxalt. The RAGA and its related Nevada PAC spent more than $3 million to help Laxalt in the 2014 campaign.
