Results released by the Secretary of State show Lombardo leading incumbent Steve Sisolak by 21,216 votes statewide, giving Trump-backed Lombardo a five-point win. An estimated 96 percent of the vote count is in.
Joe Lombardo winning the Governor’s seat brings hope for reform after many allegations of public corruption under the reign of Sisolak. Sisolak’s tenure will also be marked by failures in his administration including the appointment of a would-be murderer to a state board, an escaped convicted bomb murderer from state prison, a fumbled pandemic aid response, outsized economic devastation, educational disasters, and votes of no confidence from the public sector employees that worked under his purview.
Lombardo has promised Nevadans to restore public safety, to drive economic opportunity and diversity while implementing better education systems including school choice. Lombardo defeated a very well-funded yet bizarre Sisolak re-election campaign and Super Pac ads that targeted law enforcement.
Good riddance, Sisolak. There’s a new Sheriff in town… and he’s the Governor!
