GOP Senate Candidate Picks Up Critical Endorsements

Sam Brown, a Republican running for the Senate in Nevada against the incumbent Democrat Jacky Rosen, has quickly amassed an impressive list of endorsements since launching his candidacy.

On Thursday, Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn endorsed Brown, characterizing him as a true American hero and champion for Nevada.

Blackburn said that as we fight back against the far-Left agenda affecting regular American families, Sam’s leadership in the Senate “is needed.”

Brown agreed with Blackburn, saying he wanted to thwart an extreme Leftist agenda.

He said he appreciated Senator Blackburn’s support of his candidacy, adding that there is much work to be done for Nevada and the United States in the Senate. Brown expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to work alongside his running mate, saying he’s grateful that he’ll be able to stand alongside her as they work to stop the Left’s radical agenda and advance solutions that “better the lives of everyday families.”

In the first week of his campaign, Brown reportedly raised over $400,000, according to a person familiar with his fundraising efforts. He quickly amassed more support than the whole GOP primary field put together.

The second quarter of 2023 saw fundraising totals of $111,000 for Jim Marchant, $28,000 for Stephanie Phillips, and $2,500 for Ronda Kennedy, among other candidates.

Brown ran against Democratic incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto in a primary race for the Senate in 2022 but lost. Brown was defeated in the Republican primary by Adam Laxalt, a former state attorney general who had received Trump’s backing. In the 2022 midterm election, Laxalt lost by a margin of fewer than 8,000 votes. 

Two prominent conservative groups have endorsed Brown: Americans for Prosperity Action and the National Republican Senatorial Committee, whose leader is Montana Senator Steve Daines.
