President Trump called Nevada’s Clark County decision not to authenticate in his local race because of several discrepancies “a major victory” and suggested the issue could be evidence of a broader problem in the state.
Trump tweeted, “Great victory moments in the state of Nevada.” “All Democrats were thrown out of the county commissioner race, just because of the massive voter discrepancy” on the same ballot as president. Clark County officials do not trust their election security. deep Impact!”
The race in question was for the Clark County Commission District C, which makes up about 1/6 of the total votes cast in the state’s most populous counties. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the race was between Stavos Anthony, a Republican counselor from Las Vegas, and Democratic State Secretary Ross Miller.
Miller won by 10 of the more than 153,000 votes cast, but the paper reported that the county’s Office of the Registrar of Voters determined that 139 ballots were enough to swing the race — which contained discrepancies.
