LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican candidate for governor Adam Laxalt is clarifying comments he made in an interview that seemed to indicate he would look into proposing a change to Nevada’s voter-approved law protecting a right to an abortion.
Laxalt’s campaign said in a statement Thursday that he “has zero interest in ‘undoing’ the 1990 law in question.”
Laxalt told KOLO-TV in Reno , “We’re going to look into it,” when he was asked if he would propose a referendum for voters to consider changing Nevada’s abortion law.
The Nevada Democratic party said in a statement that Laxalt wanted to roll back access to abortion and called him “extreme.”
