Nevada has six electoral votes to offer, and while the state appeared to be leaning toward Joe Biden going into election day, the race as of Wednesday morning was too close to call. With the margin in counted votes incredibly close, Nevada election officials said they would not announce any further results until Thursday morning, leaving the fate of the state’s electoral votes in the balance.
President Trump visited Nevada several times this year, though mostly to spend the night at his property in Las Vegas before visiting other Western states. Since his official nomination, the president has campaigned twice in Nevada: once in September and once in October. He also recently campaigned just over the Nevada border in neighboring Arizona, after previous Nevada campaign event venues were cited for violating COVID-19 restrictions.
After a flurry of visits to the state as he sought his party’s nomination ahead of the state’s February caucus, Biden has returned to Nevada once, in early October.
