Conservatives, Political Figures Attend A Nevada Fundraiser
GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) — Conservative officials and political figures descended on a northern Nevada ranch for the 4th annual Basque Fry fundraiser hosted by Republican Attorney General Adam Laxalt.
Saturday's cookout at a ranch in Gardnerville about an hour outside of Reno offered GOP officials and rising stars on the political right a chance to mingle with voters and Nevada politicians over traditional Basque dishes like deep-fried lamb testicles.
The event raised money for the Laxalt-aligned Morning in Nevada PAC, which gives money to conservative candidates and causes, and will likely help boost enthusiasm for Laxalt's own campaign for governor.
Adam Laxalt is the grandson of former Nevada governor and U.S. Sen. Paul Laxalt and comes from a family of Basque immigrant sheep herders who settled in Nevada.
