Las Vegas Newspaper: Every Republican Candidate For Nevada Governor Is “An Active Threat To Democracy”

From the editorial board of the Las Vegas Sun:

No one knows better than Nevadans when it’s time to put our cards on the table. The Editorial Board, and Nevadans as a whole, are facing an agonizing problem. We have endorsed Republicans in the past and might do so again in the future.

Yet as we survey the field of Republican candidates across the state, we are struggling to identify those who are not an active threat to American democracy or the institutions of government that have sustained our republic for 250 years.

Of the five leading Republican candidates for the governorship of Nevada, every one of them has gone on record as both supporting and contributing to the Big Lie. In doing so, they have all made a choice to subvert our democracy, undermine the integrity of our elections, and ignore the Constitution of the United States.

Read the full editorial.
