Republican Elizabeth Halseth announced today as a candidate for Nevada State Assembly District 13 in Las Vegas. The seat is currently held by GOP Assemblyman Chad Christensen, who has told people he will be running for the Nevada State Senate seat in District 9 next year against fellow Republican and incumbent Sen. Denis Nolan.
Halseth’s top issues, according to her website (www.ElizabethHalseth.com), are education, taxes and spending, economic growth, public safety and health care.
“Everyday we see the failures of the liberal Democrat’s tax and spend policies,” Halseth said in a press release announcing her candidacy. “I have decided to run for this seat because I want to restore Nevada to a government that applies traditional common sense approaches to the issues we face as a state; a government that gets out of the way of hard working Nevadans and allows them to achieve their dreams.”
Halseth is a mother of three and finishing up her college degree in adult and family studies. She plans a campaign kick-off this Saturday at 10:00 am at Exploration Park in Las Vegas.
