(Reno, NV) – Today, conservative Republican candidate for Nevada State Assembly, District 25, Sam Kumar announced that he has earned the endorsement of former Nevada State Controller Ron Knecht. Knecht served as State Controller from 2015 to 2018, having previously served as a Nevada State Assemblyman and on the higher education Board of Regents. He currently serves as a Nevada Policy Research Institute Fellow and as President of the NevadaWinsPAC. 

“Sam Kumar is a bright and hard-working guy and has compiled a great record of achievement,” Knecht stated.  “But another important part of his make up is that he’s a modest, engaging guy with a great sense of humor.  That’s what we need to represent us in the legislature, because he’ll be very effective at making government work for us, not the other way around.”

“I am honored to have the support and endorsement of Ron Knecht, who has been a longtime conservative champion in Nevada,” Sam Kumar stated.  “Ron has been elected to serve our citizens in three important capacities through his career, fighting for our shared belief in individual liberty and transparency in government.  He continues this fight and I’m proud to have him by my side.”

Ron Knecht joins other notable supporters of Kumar, such as former Attorney General Adam Laxalt, former Washoe County Sheriff Chuck Allen, former State Senator Maurice Washington, Randi Thompson and former Washoe Republican Party Chairman David Buell. The Kumar campaign will focus on the key issues affecting Nevada: our highest-in-the-nation unemployment, record inflation, poor performance and lack of accountability in our public schools, unaffordable housing, the lack of respect of basic constitutional rights, and the rapid rise in crime in our communities.
