LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – Republican Nominee for Nevada’s 4th Congressional District, Sam Peters, has been declared the winner of the first debate of the campaign after he and Steven Horsford put forward competing views on inflation, pandemic recovery and immigration.

Sam Peters and Steven Horsford will face off again on Monday, October 10th in a second debate. Vegas PBS and Nevada Public Radio will host the live televised debate that will be simulcast on Vegas PBS 10.1 and News 88.9 KNPR.

Peters stated:

“As expected, Horsford employed the tactics of a professional politician by shifting blame, touting trillions of dollars of inflation causing government spending, and resorting to insinuations that anyone who disagrees with him is an extremist.

While our economic condition worsens, Horsford continued to echo the Biden Administration by claiming that COVID-19, greedy oil and gas companies, and dictators on the other side of the planet are the cause. Horsford and other elected officials aligned with a Radical agenda bent on out-of-control federal spending which has consequently led to soaring gas, grocery, and housing costs. We know he continues to follow the radical herd, and has voted for economically devastating legislation, while forcing a climate change agenda that Americans do not want and can’t afford. 

We remember when Horsford voted for the pork-filled $2 trillion ‘American Rescue Plan’ in 2021, that became the launching pad for our current soaring inflation. 

We are aware he’s tried to mislead us with the Inflation Reduction Act’ he helped pass in August, which is nothing more than a renamed ‘Green New Deal’ that employs 87,000 new armed IRS agents.

When the topic of immigration came up, Horsford framed the concern around the well-being of illegal immigrants who are here unlawfully. The safety of Americans should be the primary concern of a United States Congressman, and in the absence of such concerns, our communities are suffering from rampant crime and the tragedies caused by fentanyl flooding our streets – all on the dime of American taxpayers!

The $3 trillion dollar bill Horsford voted for would have forced American taxpayers to pay for stimulus checks to illegal immigrants. He even jumped on the Biden bandwagon to reverse border protection in Title 42. It’s clear where Horsford’s allegiance lies.

Even though Horsford continues touting his legislative ‘accomplishments’, he has proven he is a loyal accomplice to the D.C. Swamp’s money making schemes and counterproductive agendas. With such radical actions causing the burdens we are all facing, Horsford’s failure to engage beyond political rhetoric reveals how ill-equipped he is to serve Nevadans in solving this economic catastrophe with principled reasoning.”
