    (CNN)South Carolina voters delivered the vengeance that Donald Trump had sought as they ousted Rep. Tom Rice, one of the 10 House Republicans who had voted to impeach the former President, in a primary Tuesday. But in a district south of Rice's, another one-time Trump critic, Rep. Nancy Mace, narrowly survived another challenge from a Trump-endorsed rival. The races at once showed the difficulty of surviving in a GOP still dominated by Trump without embracing his grievances. Meanwhile, in Nevada, Republicans chose a vocal supporter of Trump's lies about election fraud as their nominee to become the state's top elections official. And in the Rio Grande Valley, Republicans' gains among Latino voters were on display in a special election for a House seat that could offer a glimpse at what's to come in several key states in November's midterm elections. Here are five takeaways from Tuesday's races:Read MoreTrump topples another intra-party critic in South Carolina House primaryThe former President settled another political score in South Carolina, as Trump-endorsed state Rep.

    (CNN)Former President Donald Trump's sway with Republicans will face another stark test on Tuesday night in primaries around the country, but the stakes will be unusually high in two US House races in South Carolina, where a defining principle of Trumpism -- his lie about winning the 2020 presidential election -- will be put on trial with Republican voters. The marquee contest in the Palmetto State features Rep. Tom Rice -- one of the 10 House Republicans who voted for Trump's impeachment after the January 6, 2021, US Capitol riot -- and six challengers, led by Trump-endorsed South Carolina state Rep. Russell Fry.5 things to watch Tuesday in primaries in South Carolina, Nevada, Maine and moreDespite facing a severe backlash over his impeachment vote, including death threats in its aftermath, Rice has not backed off his criticism of Trump or decided, like some of his impeachment-backing GOP colleagues, to leave office at the end of his term rather than face voters again. A staunch conservative and Trump supporter before the insurrection, the five-term congressman has instead taken his case out...
    (CNN)Two South Carolina Republicans will attempt to hold on to their seats in primaries Tuesday after breaking with former President Donald Trump over his lies about the 2020 election and his role in the January 6, 2021, insurrection at the US Capitol. Nevada, meanwhile, showcases Trump's effort to take over the election machinery in a series of battleground states, as his endorsed candidates attempt to win a slate of statewide primaries. In Texas, voters in the Rio Grande Valley will fill a seat in Congress in a special election. In Maine, they will tee up two midterm races that are expected to be hard-fought battles. And in North Dakota, Republican Sen. John Hoeven is poised to be nominated for another term.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Primary voters on Tuesday will decide the fate of two South Carolina Republicans who are clinging to their seats in the U.S. House after defying Donald Trump, while in Nevada an establishment favorite with the former president’s endorsement is facing a tougher than expected challenge for the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, in Maine, a bellicose former governor who once said he was “Trump before Trump” has come out of retirement in Florida to challenge a nemesis for his old job. Primary contests in South Carolina, Nevada and Maine on Tuesday will offer the latest test of the Trump political brand. North Dakota is also holding elections, though Republican U.S. Sen. John Hoeven doesn’t face a serious challenger. What to watch: NEVADA Trump has backed former state Attorney General Adam Laxalt for the U.S. Senate and Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo for governor. Just how well they do on Tuesday will gauge the potency of a Trump endorsement, which has delivered mixed results this midterm campaign season. Laxalt’s political pedigree has helped make him a front-runner. His...
    Nevada became the latest blue state to drop indoor mask mandates on Thursday, leaving President Joe Biden increasingly isolated in insisting that tough COVID-19 restrictions stay in place. The White House says it is following the lead of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But with cases falling 43 percent across the nation in the past week as the Omicron surge fades, it puts Biden out of step with Americans who say they are ready to try to live with the virus and with allies, such as the United Kingdom, where Prime Minister Boris Johnston on Wednesday announced plans to lift all restrictions.  Gov. Steve Sisolak of Nevada became the latest to lift a statewide mask mandate after outlining how the number of hospitalizations had dropped from their peak. 'Given all of these updates, and the tools that we now have, now is the appropriate time for me to announce that Nevada will rescind mask mandates effective immediately,' he told news conference conducted via Zoom. 'Masks will no longer be required in public places.' However, he added that people...
    Those who have followed the scandal-ridden career of Vegas cop turned Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald aren’t shocked to find him mired in former president Donald Trump’s fake electors mess. We would have been shocked if he wasn’t up to his neck in it. The chairman and former Vegas councilman, a frothing Trump fanboy from the start, used the reflected celebrity of his relationship with the former president to promote himself and consolidate his hold on the state party even as it has foundered at the polls. Joe Biden won Nevada by more than 33,000 votes. The ballots were counted, but the lies kept coming. In the weeks following the 2020 election, McDonald led the GOP’s “Stop the Steal” voter fraud deception and helped promote specious lawsuits before and even after they were swiftly laughed out of court. Naturally, McDonald was one of the phony GOP electors in seven swing states, including Nevada, that Trump hoped to use to overturn the results of the election he lost, with the party chair front and center as a Dec. 14...

    The life of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who rose from childhood poverty and deprivation in Nevada to become one of the nation's most powerful elected officials, will be celebrated by two American presidents and other Democratic leaders on Saturday, a testament to his impact on some of the most consequential legislation of the 21st century.  President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer are scheduled to speak during an invitation-only memorial for the longtime Senate leader who died Dec. 28 at home in Henderson, Nevada, at age 82 of complications from pancreatic cancer. Former President Barack Obama, who credits Reid for his rise to the White House, is scheduled to deliver the eulogy. Two presidents and numerous other Democratic powerhouses will celebrate the life of Harry Reid Saturday 'The president believes that Harry Reid is one of the greatest leaders in Senate history,' White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Friday. 'So he is traveling to pay his respects to a man who had a profound impact on this nation.' Biden served...
    President Joe Biden on Wednesday ordered flags to be flown at half-staff outside government buildings in honor of Sen. Harry Reid who died a day earlier at age 82.  Biden directed flags to be lowered at the White House, embassies, military bases and naval vessels on the day of Reid's internment.  Reid was one of the most powerful Democratic politicians to serve in Washington, and was Senate majority leader from 2007 to 2015. 'He was a man of action, and a man of his word - guided by faith, loyalty, and unshakeable resolve,' said Biden in a proclamation. 'Throughout his long career of public service, Harry Reid was instrumental in passing landmark legislation that made a positive difference in the lives of countless Americans and made our nation stronger and safer. 'His devoted service to our nation was not about power for power's sake. It was about the power to do right by the American people.' Flags flew at half-staff over the U.S. Capitol Building on Wednesday, where Harry Reid served for more than 30 years as one Washington's most powerful...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images President Joe Biden and other politicians reacted to the death on Tuesday of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid at the age of 82. “A son of Searchlight, Nevada, Harry never forgot his humble roots. A boxer, he never gave up a fight—whether in politics or even against cancer,” said Biden in a statement. “A great American, Harry looked at the challenges of the world and believed it was within our capacity to do good, to do right, and to do our part of perfecting the Union we all love.” “May God bless Harry Reid, a dear friend and a giant of our history,” he added. Vice President Kamala Harris released a statement as well. “Our country has lost an honorable public servant. Harry Reid rose through the ranks in Washington, becoming Senate Majority Leader, but he never forgot his humble beginnings in Searchlight, Nevada – and he always fought for working families and the poor,” she said. “Leader Reid also got things done: from expanding access to healthcare through the Affordable Care Act, to getting economic relief...
    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who rose from a childhood of poverty in a small Nevada town to a 34-year tenure in the heights of power in Washington DC, died Tuesday at 82.  Reid died 'peacefully' and surrounded by friends 'following a courageous, four-year battle with pancreatic cancer,' said his wife, Landra Reid. 'Harry was a devout family man and deeply loyal friend,' she said. 'We greatly appreciate the outpouring of support from so many over these past few years. We are especially grateful for the doctors and nurses that cared for him. Please know that meant the world to him.' Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days, she said.  The five-term senator helped broker the Affordable Care Act, encouraged then-Senator Barack Obama to run for President and near-singlehandedly thwarted a proposed nuclear waste facility in his state's Yucca Mountais.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Blowing snow in mountains of Northern California and Nevada closed key highways over the weekend, while an arctic blast brought frigid temperatures to the Pacific Northwest and unusually warm weather settled over parts of Texas and the Southeast. At Donner Pass in the Sierra, officials with the University of California, Berkeley’s Central Sierra Snow Laboratory on Monday said recent snowfall has smashed the snowiest December record of 179 inches (4.6 meters), set in 1970. The record is now 193.7 inches (4.9 meters) as more snow is expected. The Northstar California Resort in Truckee closed its mountain operations on Monday amid blizzard conditions. The ski resort has received more than 6 feet (1.8 meters) of snow over the last 48 hours, according to the resort’s Facebook post. Search and rescue crews are looking for a missing skier who was last seen Saturday morning on a lift at the ski resort, KCRA reported. The snowpack in the Sierra was at dangerously low levels after recent weeks of dry weather but the state Department of Water Resources reported...

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Nevada State Democratic Party officials are fuming over a draft proposal from the Democratic National Committee that would allow the DNC to hand over a crucial party asset—data files on Nevada voters—to candidates or local Democratic organizations without the state party’s consent. In what looks like another conflict between progressives and the Democratic establishment, officials of the state party, which is led by an insurgent group of Bernie Sanders supporters who wrested control of the party earlier this year, believe the new rule targets them. They consider it an effort to assist a shadow Democratic operation affiliated with Harry Reid, the former Senate majority leader who remains a powerbroker within Nevada.  The angst has been triggered by a new data-sharing agreement between the DNC and its state parties that governs the use of voter file data, the bedrock upon which campaign organizing and get-out-the-vote efforts...
    Darrell Brooks is seen in his 2007 mugshot after being arrested  in Nevada  The man accused of murdering five after mowing them down in his car during a Wisconsin holiday parade was previously convicted for threatening to bomb a casino, DailyMail.com can reveal. Darrell Brooks, 39, was busted in March 2007 for calling in a bomb threat to the $43-per-night Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada. The would-be rapper was put on probation after being convicted of conspiring to disturb the peace - a gross misdemeanor - and was banned from the Nugget for life. The circumstances of why he placed the threatening call are unknown.  His rap sheet also includes a conviction for statutory sexual seduction – the term for sex with a minor aged 16 or under in Nevada law – in January 2007 and another of failing to inform the police of a change of address while a registered sex offender. The latter two counts both relate to the mother of his child – named in Wisconsin court papers as 'EAP' – who he punched and tried...

    San Jose State coach Brent Brennan is well aware of the benefits of qualifying for a bowl game after achieving the feat last season for the first time in four tries as the Mountain West champion. “It’s comparable to having an extra spring ball,” Brennan said. “In the month of December, they get two, three, four weeks of extra practice and then they get to play a game. That’s why, in my opinion, you see a lot of those teams are able to sustain a high level that way is because you get that extra work.” The Spartans (5-4, 3-2 Mountain West) are unlikely to defend their title considering they sit in fourth place in the Mountain Division. SJSU trails three teams in the standings: No. 23 Fresno State (7-2, 4-1), which it hosts on Thanksgiving Day in the regular-season finale. San Diego State (7-1, 3-1), who prevailed 19-13 in double overtime at CEFCU Stadium in mid-October. and Nevada (6-2, 3-1), the team the Spartans travel to face on Saturday.

    A Nevada gubernatorial hopeful announced she is shooting for the governorship Tuesday in a flamboyant and aggressive campaign video. Michele Fiore, a Republican and "pro-Trump " member of the Las Vegas City Council, introduced her campaign platform by firing bullets at beer bottles labeled "CRT," "vaccine mandate," and "voter fraud" in the video. Each bottle was apparently meant to represent a point of her proposed "three-shot plan" to "ban vaccine mandates, ban critical race theory, and stop voter fraud." "We need outsiders, fighters, not the same old, boring, moderate, compromise, blue-blazer politicians," Fiore said before whipping out a handgun. OPIOID OVERDOSES SPIKED 55% IN NEVADA LAST YEAR, STATE SAYS Fiore touted her status as the first female Republican majority leader in the Nevada Assembly and one of the first elected officials to support former President Donald Trump in the ad, which showed her driving a pickup truck with a bumper sticker reading, "Trump 2024: Take America back." The three topics have caused deep divisions between Republicans and Democrats, as the national conversation...

    Hundreds of anti-vax demonstrators marched through Las Vegas and scuffled with security outside the famous Cosmopolitan hotel as they protested against Nevada's new vaccine mandate for prison and health care workers. Protesters marched through luxury hotels and shopping centers on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night. Social media video showed least one protester scuffling with security at the Cosmopolitan hotel, as guards appeared to drag him away from the luxury resort. Another man can be seen throwing himself in front of the security guards, tripping one of them up.  Others held signs reading, 'This will end when you say no,' and, 'F*** Joe Biden.' The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department did not immediately respond to questions about possible arrests from DailyMail.com. On September 14, Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered COVID-19 vaccines for all Department of Corrections employees and for public health workers at institutions that serve high-risk individuals, including young people and those with intellectual disabilities.

    Democratic Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto is leading her likely 2022 opponent by only four percentage points, a poll released Sunday showed. The poll, commissioned by the left-leaning Mellman Group for The Nevada Independent, shows Cortez Masto with 45.5% support and Republican former State Attorney General Adam Laxalt with 41.2% support. The Mellman Group polled 600 likely Nevada voters between Sept. 15-22, and it has a margin of error of four percent. This was the first independent poll conducted for the Nevada Senate race, according to Inside Elections analyst Jacob Rubashkin. The first independent poll of NEVADA shows why it is an @InsideElections Battleground in both the Senate and gubernatorial races.

    Dean Heller and Adam Laxalt are aiming for a Nevada do-over but with a 2022 twist. Heller, the losing Republican nominee for the Senate in 2018 when he ran as the incumbent, announced this week he is mounting a campaign for governor — attempting a political comeback by seeking an office the 61-year-old has long coveted. Laxalt, 43, the losing Republican nominee for governor in 2018 when he sought to advance from the state attorney general’s office, is trying to engineer a comeback of his own by running for the Senate. “After serving Nevada in the Senate, I thought I was done with politics,” Heller says in a video announcing his 2022 gubernatorial campaign. “But look what’s happened to Nevada.” The question is whether this Republican ticket in reverse will perform better in the midterm elections with President Joe Biden in the White House compared to three years ago when former President Donald Trump was commander in chief. Historically, the party without the presidency gains seats in midterm elections, which could bode well for Laxalt and Heller in a state...
    SOUTH LAKE TAHOE (AP/CBS13) – A huge firefighting force gathered Tuesday to defend Lake Tahoe from a raging wildfire that forced the evacuation of California communities on the south end of the alpine resort and put others across the state line in Nevada on notice to be ready to flee. The streets of the popular vacation hot spot, normally filled with thousands of summer tourists, were all but deserted after rapid growth of the Caldor Fire forced a mass evacuation of South Lake Tahoe on Monday and triggered hours of gridlocked traffic.

    VIDEO3:5703:57Nuro president Dave Ferguson on FedEx partnership, autonomous deliveryClosing Bell Nuro, a start-up which makes autonomous delivery vehicles, announced Thursday that it's building a factory and a closed course test-track in Las Vegas, Nevada. Funded by Softbank, Chipotle, Toyota's Woven Capital and others, Nuro says its two new commercial facilities will amount to 125,000 square feet of space across at least 80 acres of property, including 74 acres of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The start-up will invest $40 million into the facilities, and aims to generate 250 jobs in Southern Nevada initially. Unlike other driverless vehicle ventures, Nuro is focused on making zero-occupant, robotic electric delivery vehicles that look more like a kitchen appliance than a traditional car. They are smaller than vans and most taxis, but can still operate on public roads rather than in bike lanes or on sidewalks. While Nuro's driverless delivery service is not widely available yet, it is working in Houston, Greater Phoenix and Silicon Valley locations, according to the company's website. Customers can place an order for delivery with one of Nuro's retail...
    San Francisco's acting health officer, Dr. Neveena Bobba (pictured) announced, along with health officials from six neighboring counties, an indoor mask mandate, even for the vaccinated, Monday afternoon, making them the latest municipalities to reinstate face covering orders amid a surge in coronavirus cases   San Francisco, along with six other neighboring bay area counties have become the latest municipalities in the US to order face coverings in indoor public places, regardless of vaccination status. The mandates were announced by health officials in San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Sonoma counties Monday afternoon amid a surge in cases driven chiefly by the contagious Indian delta variant.  'Indoor masking is a temporary measure that will help us deal with the Delta variant, which is causing a sharp increase in cases, and we know increases in hospitalizations and deaths will follow,' San Francisco's acting health officer, Dr. Neveena Bobba, said in a statement.  The order is an escalation of a recommendation made by the health officials just two weeks ago that all residents wear masks in public...

    Latino activist groups in Nevada are working to get their communities vaccinated against coronavirus and close the gap between Hispanics and other ethnicities  Nearly a third of Nevada's population is Latino, and the state has the fifth highest share of Latino residents of any state. However, only about 30 percent of Latinos in the state have been vaccinated, compared to 50 percent of the non-Hispanic white population.  Public health experts say issues including a lack information and fear of authority were contributing factors.  Now, groups like Make the Road Nevada and Dream Big Nevada - which typically focus on immigrant rights and supporting undocumented youth - have pivoted during the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine, working to make sure the Latino community is informed and has access to the shots.  This includes posting Spanish-language billboards across the state and published Facebook posts and Live Videos in Spanish to directly reach the public. Nevada activists are trying to boost COVID-19 vaccination rates among Latino communities with Spanish-language social media posts (above) and Spanish-language billboards Latinos are less likely to have...
    States in the western U.S. are seeing a rise in coronavirus cases as younger people get hospitalized and vaccination rates decline. In Oregon, adults in their 20s make up the largest-share of case, about 21 percent, causing the seven-day rolling average in hospitalization to spike by 37 percent. What's more, daily vaccinations have dropped by 54 percent over the course of just one week.  This has led Governor Kate Brown to announced that 15 counties in Oregon are moving in the 'extreme risk' for COVID-19 category, which imposes restrictions that include banning indoor restaurant dining. Some of the Oregon's biggest cities, including Portland, Salem, Bend and Eugene, are in the counties that will be in the most dire category, effective Friday.  Similarly, in Nevada, one-fifth of all COVID-19 infections are now in residents ages 20 to 29, as more patients are hospitalized. In addition, average daily COVID-19 vaccinations have plummeted 25 percent in the last two weeks. Oregon and Nevada are following trends seen across the U.S. as the seven-day rolling average of vaccinations dropped below three million for the...
    NEVADA COUNTY (CBS13) — Nevada County was another area that took a vaccine eligibility leap Thursday, moving further past the state’s timeline to offer shots to anyone 16 and up. “I think if they have the doses, sure, why not,” said William Samuels, a county resident.

Gruver said Nevada County is seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases in young people. This comes as the county just barely made...
    On paper, using a website to schedule your vaccine appointment seems like an easy way to gain access to much needed COVID-19 immunizations. But a new investigation from The Markup shows that state-run vaccine websites are slow to load on mobile devices, compounding what can be an already intimidating sign-up experience for people who are less comfortable online. The Markup conducted its performance tests using Google’s open-source Lighthouse tool, in this case relying on the tool’s ability to measure the time it takes for a site to load and be functional. For this test, The Markup focused on the performance of the mobile version of sites on the Chrome browser and conducted the tests from three separate locations (New York, Texas, and California). Nevada’s state vaccine site was the slowest to load, taking 15.7 seconds to fully load in comparison to the fastest (Puerto Rico) at 1.4 seconds, and the average (Colorado) at 5.9 seconds.

    A transgender woman of Hispanic heritage has made history by recently winning a major beauty pageant in the state of Nevada. Her name is Kataluna Enríquez, who won the crown of the Miss Silver State USA beauty pageant, which is preliminary to the Miss Nevada USA pageant. In other words, Kataluna Patricia Enríquez, who was born male, has the possibility of winning the award of the most beautiful woman in Nevada and, therefore, participating in Miss USA and Miss Universe. In statements posted on local FOX 5 channel, the 26-year-old transgender woman said: “Miss Silver State was a great experience … for me it was honestly a celebration of femininity and diversity and this celebration of truly being yourself.” Enriquez, who is Filipino-American, revealed that she has experienced exclusion or rejection in beauty pageants in the past. But the California pageant winner has found her platform to advocate for the transgender community at these pageants, and says she feels optimistic that she could win Miss Nevada. Source: The Opinion
    LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Neemias Queta scored 26 points with 13 rebounds and Justin Bean scored 17 with 13 boards and Utah State bounced Nevada 87-66 on Sunday.

    CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Health officials in Nevada on Sunday reported 301 new confirmed COVID-19 cases and four more deaths. That increased the state’s pandemic totals to 290,972 cases and 4,872 deaths. Clark County had 242 of the new cases and two of the four deaths. The state’s largest county has had 224,469 cases and 3,780 deaths since the pandemic began. Nevada has reported downward trends of known cases, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 since mid-January. As of Sunday, the state’s coronavirus 14-day positivity rate was at 9.9% — the lowest since Nov. 3 when it was 9.8%. The additional cases were below the 14-day rolling daily average of 377 while the additional deaths were well below the 14-day daily average of 13. The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.

    CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Health officials in Nevada on Sunday reported 512 new confirmed COVID-19 cases and 15 more deaths as Gov. Steve Sisolak hailed downward trends in the coronavirus outbreak’s current surge. The numbers reported by the state increased the state’s pandemic totals to 288,348 cases and 4,709 known deaths. Clark County had 480 of the new cases and 14 of the additional deaths reported Sunday. The state’s largest county has had 222,429 cases and 3,639 of the deaths since the pandemic started. Nevada’s two-week positivity rate has been trending down since mid-January and dropped to 13.1%, according to data posted Sunday. New cases fell below the 14-day moving average of 557 cases per day. Statistics show Nevada is averaging 16 deaths per day over the same period. “We continue to see declines in our COVID trends - this is great news!,” Sisolak said on Twitter. The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick....
    An attorney claiming to represent “New California State” and “New Nevada State” filed a brief Friday in support of the Texas-led lawsuit seeking to invalidate the electoral votes of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia. Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the suit, which has now been joined by 17 other states and the president himself, in the Supreme Court Tuesday to block Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin from certifying their electoral votes because he argues that pandemic-era changes to election procedures within the states violated federal law and are unconstitutional. Paxton argues the states used executive orders to change election processes, a sentiment expressed by the brief filed by “New California State” and “New Nevada State.” “New California State and New Nevada State are directly impacted by the arbitrary and capricious changes in election laws and procedures occurring (sic) with unfortunate regularity in the current States of California and Nevada,” the brief, filed by Attorney Robert E. Thomas, reads, making up two new sub-states. “Part of the reason for the formation of New California State and New Nevada State...
    A California attorney who lives in Nevada filed a brief on behalf of two would-be states with the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday in order to bolster Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton‘s (R) argument that Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin should have their 2020 election results overturned in favor of President Donald Trump. “New California State and New Nevada State are directly impacted by the arbitrary and capricious changes in election laws and procedures [that] occur with unfortunate regularity in the current States of California and Nevada,” the proposed amicus brief says–asserting their interest in the case that the Supreme Court has yet to accept. The brief in support of Texas and other Republican-dominated states also leans heavily into exposition that catalogues complaints, griefs and gripes with the political situation in the extant Golden and Silver States–concerns said to necessitate the “New” political formations. “Part of the reason for the formation of New California State and New Nevada Sate is to stop the lawless actions of Governors Newsome [sic] (California) and Sisolak (Nevada),” the filing continues. “An opinion by...
    The Supreme Court of Nevada rejected an appeal late Tuesday from President Donald Trump's campaign to overturn the election results in the state, affirming President-elect Joe Biden's win in one of the battleground states.  'To prevail on this appeal, appellants must demonstrate error of law, findings of fact not supported by substantial evidence or an abuse of discretion in the admission or rejection of evidence by the district court,' the order read. 'We are not convinced they have done so.'  It was the latest court failure for Trump and his allies, who have lost dozens of cases in state and federal courts in an unsuccessful attempt to nullify the result of the Nov. 3 election.   The Supreme Court of Nevada rejected an appeal late Tuesday from President Donald Trump's campaign further cementing Joe Biden's win in the swing state, with the order saying that the campaign didn't provide 'substantial evidence' for them to overrule a lower court  President Donald Trump's campaign tried, unsuccessfully, to overturn the election results in Nevada and even wanted a justice to recuse himself...
    CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Health officials in Nevada on Sunday reported 2,511 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 14 additional deaths and a record high two-week positivity rate. The latest numbers pushed the state’s totals to 168,139 cases since the pandemic began with 2,315 known deaths. Nevada Department of Health and Human Services officials said the state’s positivity rate calculated over a two-week period now is 21%. On Saturday, Nevada reported a record 3,194 cases with 29 deaths. It was only the second time the state had more than 3,000 additional cases on a single day. The previous time was 3,159 cases on Nov. 25. Gov. Steve Sisolak noted the record high number of additional cases and the state’s high COVID-19 positivity rate and urged Nevadans to stay home as much as possible, wear masks and avoid crowds. Sisolak said the outbreak is straining hospitals and the state is “in the middle of our three-week statewide pause and we cannot let our guard down against this virus now.” The number of infections is thought to be far higher than...
    An anti-voter fraud organization has alerted state and federal government authorities after it found a suspicious link between a Nevada state government website and a Pakistani company that is allegedly linked to Pakistani intelligence services, Breitbart News has learned. The organization, True the Vote, alerted state and federal authorities after it requested a Nevada voter registration list through the Nevada secretary of state’s website, and received an email back with a downloadable voter file. That email arrived with an employee of Pakistani company Kavtech carbon copied. True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht wrote Thursday in a letter to the Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers obtained exclusively by Breitbart News that when the email arrived, “I was shocked to see the inclusion of another email address in the CC line.” “The address was [email protected] Waqas Butt is the CEO of Kavtech Solutions Ltd..

    Attorneys for President Donald Trump's reelection campaign told a Nevada judge in the first election fraud hearing on Thursday that more than 85,000 votes were illegally cast 'by dead people and non-residents'. One of the lawyers, Jesse Binnall, had previously said he intends to prove that fraudulent votes were cast and that Trump won the state, not President-elect Joe Biden.  During a hearing before state Judge James Russell in Carson City, Binnall claimed that more than 85,000 votes in Nevada were cast illegally.

    Pennsylvania and Nevada have certified their election results, showing President-elect Joe Biden as the winner there, while North Carolina certified that President Donald Trump won in that state. North Carolina's election board certified the state's presidential vote totals on Tuesday, awarding the state's 15 electoral votes to President Donald Trump. Pennsylvania finalized Biden as winner of that state's 20 electoral votes, the state's governor said on Tuesday, cementing Biden's victory in the key political battleground state.

    President Trump's legal team ramped up challenges to election results in Nevada on Tuesday with a lawsuit that asserts that the president won the state, despite being more than 33,500 votes behind President-elect Joe Biden, due to problems in the voting system and fraud. "The discrepancies and irregularities in this election will eclipse the difference in the votes between the candidates," states the lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Nevada's 1st District Court. That marks a stronger tone from Trump's Nevada legal team than it's taken previously. Former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, who is helping the Trump campaign's legal effort, told the Washington Examiner last week that it was "absurd" to ask whether the campaign's legal challenge would show that Trump is the true legal winner in Nevada's presidential contest. "There are north of 15,000 people who voted in Nevada and another state," Laxalt said in a press conference on Tuesday for the new lawsuit, a new allegation. The filing also says that there are over 1,000 people who voted in Nevada's election despite having moved out...
    Republican Senator Lindsey Graham revealed he's spoken to officials in Arizona and Nevada about their presidential votes after Georgia's secretary of state accused him of pressure to discard legally-cast ballots. Joe Biden carried all three states but President Donald Trump is contesting the results.  Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill on Tuesday he's spoken to Republican Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona - who still has to certify the results of the presidential election in his state - and to one of Nevada's state election officials.  'What I'm trying to find out is how do you verify mail-in ballots. So the question for me is if we're going to use more mail-in ballots, we need to have signature verification that's bipartisan,' he said. The South Carolina senator also told reporters he spoke to President Trump on Monday night but would only say the two men talked about 'national security.'  Republican Senator Lindsey Graham revealed he's spoken to officials in Arizona and Nevada about their presidential votes His conversations came as Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, a top Democrat in House leadership, called on...
    By SAM METZ, AP / Report for America CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Republican challengers defeated incumbents in the Nevada Assembly, thwarting Democrats' hopes of maintaining their veto-proof majority in the Nevada Assembly. Former Las Vegas Assemblyman Richard McArthur defeated Democratic Assemblywoman Connie Munk in Nevada's 4th Assembly District. Republican Andy Matthews unseated first-term Democrat Shea Backus in 37th Assembly District. Matthews has worked at the Nevada Policy Research Institute, a state-based think-tank that advocates for conservative causes, and worked on Republican Adam Laxalt’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign. In the state Senate, Republican charter school executive Carrie Buck defeated Democrat Kristee Watson in the race to succeed term-limited Democrat Joyce Woodhouse. Woodhouse defeated Buck narrowly in 2016. The outcomes keeps Democrats below the two-thirds thresholds they would need to unilaterally pass new taxes without Republican support in both chambers.

    Americans are passing the time waiting for an election result with increasingly creative memes mocking the slow count in Nevada.   Twitter and Instagram have gone into overdrive with memes mocking the slow counting of ballots as the election hangs in the balance of votes yet to be tallied in Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. Nevada is bearing the brunt of the jokes as going in to Friday morning it still had roughly 25 per cent of ballots left to tally.  The state, which is expected to swing toward Joe Biden and where Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit claiming voter fraud, delayed announcing its result from noon Thursday.  Nevada carries just 6 electoral college votes but ballot counters in the Silver State - many of whom are local volunteers - have found the spotlight of the nation on them as those votes could spell victory for Biden.   With the nation waking up to yet another day of uncertainty as several critical swing states are still in play, Americans are turning to social...

    By BRIAN SLODYSKO, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — A handful of states remained in play Thursday in the tightly contested U.S. presidential race. The outcome of contests in Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Nevada will determine whether Democrat Joe Biden, or President Donald Trump wins. The solidly Republican state of Alaska has also not been called because it is only 50% counted and will not release absentee numbers until Nov. 10. It is not expected to impact the outcome. The Associated Press reviews the states that will determine the presidency: ___ GEORGIA: Outstanding ballots left to be counted in counties where Biden has performed well. THE BACKGROUND: Early Wednesday, Trump prematurely claimed he carried Georgia. “It’s ... clear that we have won Georgia. We’re up by 2.5%, or 117,000 (votes) with only 7% (of the vote) left” to count, Trump said during an early morning appearance at the White House.
