GOP Chair in NV Says AZ-Style Election Audit Needed

-

After visiting the election audit of Arizona’s Maricopa County, the head of Nevada’s Republican Party said a similar review is needed in Nevada—although that possibility appears slim, as Democrats control both houses of the state Legislature.

“The Nevada Senate isn’t going to waste any time or taxpayer money entertaining their unhinged conspiracy theories,” she said.

Responding to McDonald’s interview, Democrat Attorney General Aaron Ford said…
