Army veteran Sam Brown has quickly transformed from an underdog to a rising star in the Republican party as they gear up for another Senate race in Nevada. Despite losing by a large margin in the 2022 primary, Brown’s impressive fundraising skills and compelling personal story have caught the attention of Senate Republicans looking for candidates without political baggage.
Backed by Sen. Steve Daines, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Brown is one of several candidates recruited by the party for this election cycle. While the party’s primary focus has been on unseating Democrats in states like Montana and West Virginia, they believe Brown has the potential to turn Nevada red. With endorsements from prominent Republicans like Sen. Marsha Blackburn and Sen. Lindsey Graham, Brown is gaining support within the party.

Although he will face opposition from Jim Marchant, a failed secretary of state candidate, in the primary, Brown has already made an impact with his impressive fundraising efforts and high-profile endorsements. He recently traveled to Washington to meet with Senate Republicans, impressing many and securing at least one previously unreported endorsement from Sen. Markwayne Mullin.
Despite being labeled an extremist by Democrats, Brown is focusing on a centrist message and tying his opponent, Jacky Rosen, to the “extreme policies” of President Biden. With his military background and determination, Brown hopes to earn the trust and support of Nevadans and bring a much-needed conservative voice to the Senate.
