NEVADA SENATE DEMOCRATS’ STATEMENT ON GOP APPEAL OF THE RECALL DECISION
Las Vegas – Today, the Nevada Senate Democrats issued the following statement in response to the GOP’s appeal of the District Court’s recall decision:
“We are not surprised that the GOP filed an appeal on the recall case. Losing isn’t easy to swallow. The fact remains, however, that the district court found resoundingly for Senators Woodhouse and Cannizzaro, and it is certain that the Nevada Supreme Court will uphold its legal and factual findings.
These recalls were doomed from the beginning and have wasted tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars, all to satisfy the vanity of Michael Roberson. The recalls now have been defeated by constituents in the districts, who removed their names in droves; in the Elections Department by neutral signature verifiers; and in court by an impartial Clark County judge. It is the GOP’s right to add the Nevada Supreme Court to the list of its losses, of course, and we look forward to ensuring that outcome very soon.”
