Reports show Sisolak spending heavily in Democratic primary


New campaign finance reports show Democrat Steve Sisolak has been spending heavily as he battles fellow Clark County Commission member Chris Giunchigliani in a tight primary race for governor.

Reports filed late Tuesday show Sisolak raised $1.4 million this year through May 18 and spent $5.2 million in that same time frame.

Giunchigliani's latest report shows she raised more than $810,000 and spent about $1 million during the first months of the year.

Attorney General and front-runner for the Republican nomination Adam Laxalt reported raising almost $1.9 million so far in 2018.

His main GOP opponent and state Treasurer Dan Schwartz reported raising about $66,000. Most of that was a $60,000 loan from the candidate himself.

The primary election is June 12.
