Senate Republican Caucus endorses Scott Hammond


LAS VEGAS – The Nevada Senate Republican Caucus today endorsed State Assemblyman Scott Hammond ofLas Vegas for the newly formed State Senate District 18.

“Scott has proven himself to be a strong leader in the Assembly,” said Nevada Senate Minority Leader Mike McGinness of Fallon. “His leadership and conservative values will make him a valued member of the Senate. Nevada needs Scott Hammond.”

The current makeup of the State Senate leaves the Republican Party just one seat short of the majority. Senator Michael Roberson of Las Vegas was appointed in June to serve as campaign chairman for the Nevada Senate Republicans.

“Assemblyman Hammond is exactly the kind of candidate Nevadans are looking for,” Roberson said. “He has a thorough understanding of the issues facing our state and is not afraid to tackle the tough issues. He will be a great addition to the Senate. Our Caucus has enthusiastically endorsed Scott’s candidacy, and we’ll do everything we can to help him.”

Hammond currently represents Assembly District 13, where he serves on the Health and Human Services, Judiciary and Transportation committees. During the 2011 legislative session, Hammond played a pivotal role in reforming the state’s education system.

Hammond teaches government and Spanish for the Clark County School District and political science at UNLV. He lives in Las Vegas with his wife and their three children.
