Democrat super PACs are posing as Republicans and spending millions of dollars in Nevada’s Republican gubernatorial primary in an attempt to prevent former President Donald Trump’s pick, Joe Lombardo, from becoming the GOP nominee.
Clark County Sheriff Lombardo, whom Trump recently endorsed, is now leading the Nevada GOP gubernatorial primary by 20 points less than one month away from the state’s June 14 primary election, according to a recent poll. Trump said:
As Governor, Joe will fiercely Protect our under-siege Second Amendment, Oppose Sanctuary Cities, Support our Law Enforcement, Veto any Liberal Tax Increase, Protect Life, and Secure our Elections. Joe Lombardo is the leader Nevada needs, and he has my Complete and Total Endorsement for Governor!
However, Democrats are going to drastic lengths to prevent Lombardo from securing the Republican nomination, hoping to boost weaker candidates they view as easier to defeat in the general election.
For example, A Stronger Nevada is one of several newly-registered super PACs that Democrats are using as a guise to interfere in the Republican primary. That PAC has pledged to spend $2.1 million in Lombardo attack ads ahead of the June primary. A Stronger Nevada has no social media presence or website but is reportedly linked to the Democrat Governors Association. The PAC’s two officers are Andrew Whalen and Jillian Edelman, both Democrat Party operatives.
