The Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) invested close to an additional $3 million in a newly released ad which highlights allegations of corruption and cronyism levied against Governor Steve Sisolak and the devastating impact of inflation that is hitting Nevada households the hardest.
As reported by The Globe, gas in Nevada has again surged over $5.00 a gallon and Nevada households are paying an additional $10,142 in inflationary taxes since Biden took office. The Silver State’s inflation rate is now a staggering 15.6 percent costing hardworking Nevadans an additional $845 per month, forcing many older Americans to delay retirement or return to work.
TranscriptI worked in the casinos for 25 years and then saved for my retirement. But inflation is eating into my savings and forcing me to go back to work. Steve Sisolak doesn’t care about us. As we fell behind, Sisolak gave sweetheart deals to his campaign donors. And Sisolak ran a shady telemarketing business that was accused of ripping off seniors. Some of Sisolak’s cronies even ended up in jail. Steve Sisolak is out for himself.
“Northshore Steve Sisolak has one priority, and it’s not tackling the devastating inflation affecting every Nevada family thanks to his and Biden’s policies,” said RGA Spokeswoman Maddie Anderson. “As Nevadans struggle to pay more for gas, groceries, and housing, Sisolak is far too busy wheeling and dealing with his campaign donors to care.”
Last month, GOP challenger Sheriff Joe Lombardo accused Governor Sisolak of corruption and cronyism, referring to the Northshore Clinical Labs scandal as the “biggest scandal and biggest coverup in our history.” At that time, the RGA doubled-down on his accusations by releasing a $2.5 million ad entitled “Cronyism”.
RGA’s investment in Nevada might be paying off as Sisolak is falling in the polls. A Nevada Independent/OH Predictive Insights poll in April showed Sisolak with a nine point lead over Lombardo (44 percent to 35 percent). According to a newly released Nevada Independent/OH Predictive Insights poll, Lombardo now leads Sisolak by three points (45 percent to 42 percent)– a substantial swing in a swing state with less than 40 days to election day.
