August 17, 2018
LAS VEGAS — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval says he won't make an endorsement in the gubernatorial race.
The Republican, term-limited Sandoval confirmed his decision to The Associated Press in a statement Thursday.
Attorney General Adam Laxalt is the Republican gubernatorial hopeful.
Clark County commission chairman Steve Sisolak is the Democratic candidate.
The race has drawn in millions in outside spending and is a high-stakes battle for both parties.
The governor's race is one of eight targeted in a $20 million effort from the Democratic Governors Association with the hope that governors could improve the party's chances of winning congressional seats.
