As Democrats hurry to pass massive their reconciliation spending bill on party lines, in part so they can have a major accomplishment to run on in the 2022 midterms, Republican Nevada Senate candidate Adam Laxalt says their bill may help him win his race.
"No one voted for a transformation of the economy. This is the most evenly divided government we've had in a very, very long time," Laxalt said, borrowing "transformational" language that Democrats often use to describe their spending plan.
"I can tell you, Nevadans haven't asked for transformation – some transformational policy out of Washinton, D.C.," he added.
Laxalt's opponent, Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., was part of a group of moderate Democrats who met with President Biden last week as their party frantically tries to hash out an agreement before Biden leaves the U.S. for a climate summit this week. Democrats are trying to balance initial demands from progressives for a $3.5 trillion spending plan with demands from moderates for a lower price tag.
