Former Donald Trump adviser to campaign for Adam Laxalt in Las Vegas

A former aide to Donald Trump will visit Las Vegas this weekend to help former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt campaign for U.S. Senate.

Kellyanne Conway, former senior counselor to Trump, is scheduled to participate in a meet-and-greet Saturday afternoon at Stoney’s Rockin’ Country, 6611 Las Vegas Blvd. South, suite 160.

Conway took over as Trump’s campaign manager in August 2016 and made history as the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign.

She stepped away from her role in the White House in August 2020, citing a need to spend time with her children, the Associated Press reported at the time. In 2019, the Office of Special Counsel recommended that President Trump remove her from federal service for repeated violations of the Hatch Act, which prohibits federal employees from using government time or property to engage in partisan politics.

Trump declined to follow that recommendation.

Laxalt, who is seeking the Republican nod to challenge Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto next year, secured Trump’s support early in his campaign.

Nevada’s 2022 U.S. Senate race is of national importance because the outcome could determine which party controls the upper chamber.
