Lombardo leads in early returns

Gov. Steve Sisolak is bracing for hurricane-force electoral headwinds stirred up by President Joe Biden’s dismal approval rating, painful gas prices and galloping inflation.

And early election results in Clark County, Nevada’s most populous, point to the first-term governor soon grappling with one of state’s toughest Republican candidates: Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, the GOP gubernatorial favorite who recently topped Sisolak in the polls and landed the much-coveted endorsement of former President Donald J. Trump.

As of about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday, with 10 percent of precincts reporting in Clark County, Lombardo was leading his opponents with about 48 percent of the vote. His next closest opponent, Reno attorney Joey Gilbert, had about 19 percent of the vote.

“Hopefully you can stick around and we can get some more numbers in,” Lombardo told supporters at his election party near the Strip shortly after Clark County’s initial numbers were posted.

The Reno Gazette Journal will update this story throughout the evening as more election results become available. Check back for updates.
