    Nevada’s primary trade association for major casinos is launching a nonpartisan political action committee to support legislative candidates of both major political parties who support the state’s gaming industry.

    In a statement, the Nevada Resort Association – which represents nearly 80 casino resorts across the state – said it has already raised more than $2 million from association members to “recruit, assess, endorse, and elect state legislative candidates in 2022.”

    “We’re looking for sensible individuals on both sides of the aisle who will champion issues that grow our economy, encourage economic investment and job creation, contribute to our employees’ well-being, ensure taxes are fair and transparent, and protect our state’s distinctive character as a global leader in travel and tourism,” NRA President Virginia Valentine said in a statement.
