NEVADA SENATE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS STATEMENT ON THE DEFEAT OF RECALL EFFORTS AGAINST SENATORS WOODHOUSE & CANNIZZARO

 

Las Vegas, NV – The State Senate recalls have failed. 

 

We appreciate the Clark County Registrar and Nevada Secretary of State, and their hard-working public employees, completing a diligent review of all recall petition signatures and signature removal requests for Senate Districts 5 and 6, under difficult circumstances. The results are now in and they indict, devastatingly, Michael Roberson and the GOP for an incredible waste of time, taxpayer money, and public resources.

 

We knew that the GOP employed shady tactics in gathering their signatures, because thousands of voters demanded their signatures be removed from the petitions once given the opportunity.

We knew that the attempts to recall Senators Woodhouse and Cannizzaro would end in dismal failure, because voters were never going to stand for this nonsense.

 

We knew that Republican officials, from the Lieutenant Governor on down who either aided or remained silent during this ridiculous abuse of public trust, would not be rewarded for their complicity.

 

Now everyone knows. 

 

We will continue to stand up for voters and for fair, democratic elections. We are grateful that this sad chapter of our state's political history has come to an end. We regret the GOP chose to put everyone through this, but it will strengthen our resolve to win statewide this coming November.
