Basque Fry 2019 Looks Forward to Turning Nevada Red in 2020 Election

The fifth annual Basque Fry event was held this Saturday and brought out conservative voters who are anticipating Nevada's turn to a red state in the 2020 presidential election.

Morning in Nevada Political Action Committee (PAC) hosts the event each year which features leading conservatives talking about the issues they are passionate about. 

"There's going to be a lot of speakers, some who have been in the administration and some who are commentators on what's going on in our country, and I think you're going to see the great divide that's developed. That's the contrast we want to highlight." Said Adam Laxalt, President of Morning in Nevada PAC.

Laxalt says the event is meant to give Nevada Republicans and conservatives hope for the election to come, and all elections to follow as conservative politicians continue to chase positions of leadership.

"2018 was a tough year for republicans and there was a lot of intensity and turnout on the democratic side, and we're hoping that today is a sign that there's still a lot of great hope in the state, a lot of people who are ready to turn out and be a part of this whole process." Said Laxalt.

This year the Basque Fry was co-hosted with the American Conservative Union as a part of the inaugural Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC). 

Some of the nationally known speakers at the 2019 Basque Fry were Corey Lewandowski, who held roles previously as Chief Political Advisor and Campaign Manager to Donald J. Trump, Matt Schlapp, Chairman of the American Conservative Union, and Mercedes Schlapp who is a Senior Advisor for the Trump Pence Campaign.

Aside from the politics everyone at the event was able to enjoy Basque food, family friendly entertainment and were able to meet local leaders in Nevada.
