Donald Trump can finally claim a battleground gubernatorial win in his stable.
Joe Lombardo defeated Democrat incumbent Steve Sisolak in Nevada.
Trump has one more shot for a gubernatorial win with Kari Lake, but she is currently trailing and time is running out.
Lombardo came along at precisely the right time to knock out an incumbent Democrat.
Democrat policies crippled Nevada during the pandemic.
There is also the rising crime rates.
Lombardo is a former LVMPD officer, so he comes with that law and order background.
Something of note here is that Lombardo, while having Trump's backing, never backed Trump's election claims from 2020.
I only bring that up because that is what Trump blamed Mehmet Oz's loss on.
The Republican Governor's Association (RGA) celebrated the win after the election was called.
It announced, "The RGA is excited to congratulate Governor-elect Sheriff Joe Lombardo on winning Nevada's gubernatorial race.
"After four years of Steve Sisolak's small business and job-killing policies, Governor-elect Lombardo's unique perspective as a seasoned law enforcement officer and fiscal conservative will get the state moving in the right direction on behalf of all Nevada families.
"The RGA was proud to be a crucial partner in this race to elect Joe and fire Steve Sisolak.
"Our independent expenditure effort in Nevada was the largest in RGA history and we're excited to have Joe joining our ranks."
Now we just need the Senate race in the state to fall the same way.
