Wounded US Army vet considering another Senate bid to unseat vulnerable Nevada Democrat

Former Republican Senate candidate and Afghanistan war veteran Sam Brown is considering a second bid for the U.S. Senate, this time to unseat Nevada’s other vulnerable Democratic senator, Jacky Rosen, a source close to Brown confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday.

Fox also obtained an email invitation Brown sent earlier in the day for a July 10 event in Reno, Nevada, where he will make a “special announcement.”

“These last two years I’ve had the honor of traveling around our state and listening to Nevadans one-on-one. Whether at homes, schools, or businesses, they tell me they are deeply concerned with the direction our country is headed,” Brown wrote in the invitation.

As a first time Senate candidate in 2022, he came in second to former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt in the Republican primary, losing 56% to 34%. Laxalt went on to lose narrowly to incumbent Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto.

Laxalt, a longtime ally of Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who’s steering the Never Back Down super PAC that’s backing the governor’s 2024 presidential bid, has indicated he won’t make another Senate run next year.
