“Gov. Sisolak has proven to be a strong, consistent leader and has navigated the state through a public health crisis while putting the needs of Nevadans first, protecting jobs, and supporting businesses,” said DGA Senior Communications Advisor Christina Amestoy. “Whether it’s protecting and expanding the right to vote, expanding access to health care, or investing in public education, Gov. Sisolak has made historic strides in building a strong economy and achieving progress for Nevada. Nevadans know that the Silver State is heading in the right direction and are looking forward to reelecting Gov. Sisolak.”
