Las Vegas lawyer Adam Laxalt, grandson of former Nevada Republican governor and U.S. Sen. Paul Laxalt, announced his candidacy for state attorney general on Tuesday in what could become a matchup against the Democratic son of another popular ex-governor.
The executive who has headed the country's main casino industry lobbying organization since its inception in 1995 announced Monday that he'll step down June 30.
Months after D.C. lawmakers repealed a measure that would have allowed first-in-the-nation online gambling on home computers and at select sites in the shadow of Capitol Hill, several states are forging ahead with online games of chance while a harried Congress remains unlikely to pass a federal bill that would regulate the practice.
The nation's commercial casinos continued their slow-but-steady comeback from the recession last year, with revenues up 3 percent nationwide and jobs holding nearly steady, according to a report released Wednesday.
Laxalt is "made of the metal to be a fearless leader and dedicated public servant," Fahrenkopf said.
Former National Republican Committee Chairman Frank Fahrenkopf Jr. said he has known Adam Laxalt since he was a child.
