Republican Senate candidate Sam Brown, a retired U.S. Army captain who suffered severe burns in an explosion in Afghanistan, said in a recent interview in Las Vegas that he is running for office again because he believes issues that previously motivated him to run, including high inflation, are worse than they were two years ago.
Retired U.S. Army Capt. Sam Brown is entering Nevada's 2024 U.S. Senate race, with the institutional backing of Senate Republicans. Brown, who made his announcement public at a Monday afternoon event at Bragg Crane Service in Sparks, pitched himself in a statement to The Nevada Independent as the best candidate to take on Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV), who is running for a second term. Best known as an Army veteran who sustained severe injuries during a 2008 deployment in Afghanistan, Brown has never held office before but garnered attention for strong fundraising during an unsuccessful Nevada Republican Senate primary bid last cycle.
