Three local NBC affiliates and their corporate parent company gave a total of $40,000 to Ross Miller, the Democratic candidate for state attorney general in Nevada, but reportedly failed to mention that fact to viewers during their coverage of the hotly contested race.

On Tuesday, Miller – who is currently Nevada’s secretary of state – lost his race against underdog Republican Adam Laxalt by a one-point margin. Laxalt managed to overcome an early 17-point deficit to eke out a 46-to-45 victory on a night in which the GOP swept Nevada’s top state races.
