Joe Lombardo Crashes and Burns in Rare Public Appearance
“No Show Joe” proved why he’s been dodging appearances and questions throughout the Nevada GOP primary when he absolutely bombed in a candidate forum this week.
At the event, Lombardo dismissed Gov. Steve Sisolak’s policy to expand health care coverage to 350,000 more Nevadans as “bullshit.”
And in yet another example of how out-of-touch he is, Lombardo trivialized struggling Nevada families, saying, “They lost their job, they don’t have the ability to feed their kids, can’t pay their mortgage because they don’t have affordable housing, blah, blah, blah.”
When his GOP opponents slammed “Sanctuary Joe” for failing on immigration, Lombardo refused to answer for his record. “I’m freaking tired of hearing it,” he said.
But Lombardo won’t be able to silence the attacks any time soon — GOP opponent John Lee came out with another ad yesterday hitting his immigration record.
DGA Senior Communications Advisor Christina Amestoy said: “Joe Lombardo can try to run from his terrible record, but he’s said all he needs to say to prove just how out-of-touch he is with working Nevadans.”
