Jimmy Kimmel Releases Scathing Nonendorsement Video For GOP Candidate

The comedian hit Adam Laxalt with a withering reminder of how the Senate hopeful's own family intends to vote this year.

Jimmy Kimmel on Friday released a nonendorsement video tearing into a far-right Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Nevada, the late-night host’s home state.

In the clip, Kimmel said the “one thing” that Americans should be able to agree on is that “unbalanced people don’t belong in the Senate.”

“That’s why I am not endorsing Adam Laxalt, and neither is his family,” the comedian cracked, referencing the 14 relatives of Laxalt who are backing his Democratic rival, incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, in Tuesday’s midterm election.

“Why? Because they know him,” Kimmel added.

Laxalt, a former state attorney general, has said it’s “sad” that Nevada protects abortion rights, flip-flopped on the merits of mail-in voting when it suits him and repeatedly pushed the lie that former President Donald Trump won the 2020 election. He has also refused to confirm whether he would vote to certify the 2024 election result.

“Forget which side you’re on. Nevada needs a sane person in the Senate,” Kimmel said in clip before urging voters to back Cortez Masto.

“I know her. We both went to Clark High School. She’s a good person, a hard worker, and guess what? Her family is voting for her,” he added.
