Trump-Backed Sheriff Joe Lombardo Projected Winner of Nevada Republican Governor Primary


Sheriff Joe Lombardo scored a relatively easy victory in the Nevada governor’s race Republican primary Tuesday night.

With 37 percent reporting, Lombardo’s victory can only be classified as a blowout, earning 48 percent of the vote while his closest opponent, Joey Gilbert, earned just 19 percent. Former Sen. Dean Heller, who was ousted from his seat by Democrat Jacky Rosen in 2018, currently stands in fourth place with just four percent of the vote.

With 37% reporting in the GOP primary for #NVgov, it’s Joe Lombardo 48%, Joey Gilbert 19%, John Lee 13%. Dean Heller has only 9%, ouch.
