Republican Sheriff Joe Lombardo Wins Race For Governor Of Nevada

Republican Sheriff Joe Lombardo has won the governor race in Nevada, defeating Democrat Steve Sisolak.

Conservatives have to take any wins they can get in this midterm election and this is a good one.

Perhaps Lombardo can improve the voting procedures in the state.

The Nevada Independent projected Lombardo’s victory several days after the midterm election, following vote counting delays in several counties. The New York Times shows Trump-endorsed Lombardo a little more than two points ahead of Sisolak, 49.2 percent to 47.0 percent with 93 percent of the vote counted. Lombardo is unseating the first Democrat to win the office since 1994.

Lombardo and Sisolak ran a close race throughout the entirety of their campaigns, with Lombardo pulling ahead by several points in the polls over the past few months. RealClearPolitics gave Lombardo a 2.8-point average lead over Sisolak by Election Day.

Sisolak conceded soon after Lombardo’s projected victory, stating that while it is “not the outcome I want, I believe in our election system, in democracy and honoring the will of Nevada voters.”
