I want to bring Nevada to the forefront of America and be a role model and the healthiest state of our nation,” Jared Fisher says.
The election to replace Brian Sandoval is not until next year. That will give Jared Fisher plenty of time to complete his 1,400 mile bicycle trip across the state as he lets people know that he is running for the Republican nomination.
Fisher, a 47-year-old who moved to Nevada in 1990 and graduated from UNLV, owns Escape Adventures – a bicycle tour company that he and his wife, Heather, started as a student marketing company.
They also own Las Vegas Cyclery in Summerlin.
Fisher, who describes himself as a Teddy Roosevelt Republican with a strong focus on the environment, feels he has had a very fortunate life in Nevada.
“It’s time for me to give back to Nevada,” he says. “After all, I have always believed in making things better.”
Fisher says that even though he has never held office, “I have been preparing for this office for 25 years. I want to bring Nevada to the forefront of America and be a role model and the healthiest state of our administration,”
It’s not clear yet who Fisher will challenge in the primary but the person everyone is looking at is Attorney General Adam Laxalt.
Laxalt, with more than $1 million in cash, has not announced if he will run for governor or seek re-election.
