Votes for the Senate race in Nevada are still being counted for some reason, but there is good news for Republicans.
Adam Laxalt could still pull out a win here.
Republicans have to take all the wins they can get.
From the Las Vegas Review Journal:
Laxalt holds lead over Cortez Masto into Wednesday evening
Republican former Attorney General Adam Laxalt took a slight lead over Democratic incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto in the U.S. Senate race in early returns, although that lead narrowed ever so slightly after Clark County released additional numbers Wednesday evening. Clark, Nevada’s largest county, still needs to count around 70,000 mail ballots.
Laxalt was leading Cortez Masto 50 percent to 47.9 percent as of Wednesday evening.
“The votes are still being counted. We know this will take time and we won’t have more election results for several days,” Cortez Masto said. “I am confident in this team. I’m confident in the campaign that we’ve built to win.” Cortez Masto said at a gathering at the Encore along with Gov. Steve Sisolak and other Democrats.
“We are exactly where we want to be in this race. We have a lot of our votes coming in all across the state yet to be tabulated. We are going to win this race,” said Laxalt at Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa on Tuesday night, where he gathered with gubernatorial hopeful Joe Lombardo and other Republicans.
Laxalt is holding on to this race to the very end.
Of the 84,000 votes left to count in Clark County, Cortez Masto could win 63% of them and she would still lose.
That doesn’t even take into account the gains we will make from rural counties.

Hopefully we will know the outcome of this race by the end of the week.
How did we get to the point where it took this long?
