Nevada voters have decided that they don’t want Republicans to win the state again.
The results show Bernie Sanders losing the state by 15 point.
The Nevada Democratic Party issued a statement Tuesday night, saying that while Nevada has a “very diverse population,” the results were “in keeping with the national trend.”
The state’s Democratic nominee for governor, Catherine Cortez Masto, has lost to Republicans by more than 20 points, according to the Associated Press.
Democrats also have the opportunity to capture the governor’s mansion next year, where Cortez-Masto and her Republican opponent, former Nevada governor Brian Sandoval, have faced off.
The AP reported that Cortez was a “super-likely” Republican, and that her Democratic opponent is a “lean Republican.”
The state is still a red state, so the Democratic Party’s statement did not mention how Cortez and her campaign were able to win in a state where Republicans hold a huge majority of the state’s seats.
The Democratic Party statement said the “results reflect the electorate’s preferences and preferences do not necessarily reflect the national sentiment.
And as Democrats have learned, the path to victory in Nevada is not to be lost in the shuffle.”
Clinton is expected to be in Las Vegas on Wednesday for the Democratic National Convention.
Sanders, meanwhile, is scheduled to make a stop in Las Cruces, New Mexico, for the State Democratic Party Convention.
He will appear at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel on Tuesday night.
