“Gov. List is a respected, committed leader who embodies the very best of Nevada, and I am honored to receive his endorsement,” said Walker. “I believe we have a positive and important message to share, and with Gov. List’s support, I have no doubt we will reach and broaden our base of support in the Silver State as we compete to win in Nevada.”

“I am excited to announce my support today for Gov. Scott Walker,” said Gov. List. “He is a tested leader who, through hard work and without compromising his principles, brought his vision for a better Wisconsin to life. I look forward to working with Gov. Walker to ensure that his vision for a stronger, more vibrant America is also brought to life, bolstered by a victory in next year’s Nevada caucus.”

Prior to being elected Governor, he served for eight years as the elected Attorney General of Nevada after serving as District Attorney of Carson City, Nevada.
