Debates/Survey

October 10 debate

October 10, 2014

Ross Miller (D) and Adam Paul Laxalt (R) traded barbs during a debate recorded for Vegas PBS. Miller argued that his two terms as Nevada Secretary of State qualified him for the attorney general's office, given his experiences enforcing state election laws. He criticized Laxalt for seeking the state's highest law enforcement position while lacking the legal experience to become a judge in Nevada. Laxalt cited his experience as a lawyer with the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps and endorsements from county sheriffs in response to Miller.

The candidates also criticized one another over campaign finance. Laxalt claimed that Miller received $70,000 in gifts from special interests and asked what he gave them in return, while Miller questioned the transparency of sources spending in favor of Laxalt.

Miller and Laxalt also addressed campaign ads from the early days of the general election. Miller stated that Laxalt's campaign was wrong to claim that Democratic operatives leaked a performance review from Laxalt's former employer indicating that he was a "train wreck." Laxalt used time during the debate to deny close connections with Cliven Bundy, a Nevada rancher whose supporters confronted federal officials in the spring over grazing rights.
