Nevada’s voter turnout just topped 45 per­cent of re­gistered voters, a re­cord low for the state, which Rep. Steven Horsford (D) blamed for his up­set loss. “Al­though the Re­pub­lic­ans might seem like they had a wave it’s more about Demo­crats not turn­ing out to make sure their voice was heard,” he said.

State As­sembly­man Cres­cent Hardy (R) had an­oth­er ex­plan­a­tion. “We had an up­hill battle, but I be­lieve in di­vine things hap­pen­ing,” he said.

“If you look at the num­bers, Con­gres­sion­al Dis­trict 4 should not be com­pet­it­ive,” said the Nevada Policy Re­search In­sti­tute’s Geof­frey Lawrence. “It should lean Demo­crat­ic or be strong Demo­crat­ic­ally every time.”

“Is it the Demo­crats not show­ing up be­cause they don’t want to show up? Or, is it that they are dis­cour­aged by what’s go­ing on in D.C.? I be­lieve it’s the lat­ter,” Hardy said. (KLAS)
