The repeated false claims by former President Donald Trump that the result of the November election was fraudulent has been debunked over and over again. But some Republicans in Nevada appear to be standing by it.

In fact, in a new statement, the local GOP in Washoe County — a key swing county in this key swing state — even downplayed the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

The statement, flagged by Nevada Independent editor Jon Ralston on Monday, was titled "Make Elections Fair Again." It also endorsed the writings of a pro-Trump activist who has promoted Sidney Powell, the infamous "kraken" attorney who crashed and burned after a series of poorly conceived lawsuits to overturn the election — including one where she forgot what state Detroit was in.

"It has been over two months since the disappointing results of the Jan 6th incident in Washington DC," the party bizarrely noted.

The longtime political reporter was baffled by the word choice.

"'Disappointing results' = people killed? Or failure to capture Dems?" he wondered.

Although elections in Nevada are consistently close, the Republican Party has not carried the state in a presidential contest since 2004 — thanks in large part to the efforts of organized labor and a network of activists informally known as the "Reid Machine" after former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid. Washoe County, which includes the cities of Reno and Sparks, usually votes for the candidate who wins the state.
