Aguilar defeated pro-choice negator Marchant in the race for Nevada supervisor of the vote
Aguilar, who chairs the school’s board of trustees in North Las Vegas, campaigned to make voting more accessible and said it would “protect our democracy.”
Marchant was one of several statewide election-denying candidates nominated for secretary of state this year. In Michigan, GOP candidate Kristina Karamo — who promoted false claims about the 2020 election — lost by 14 points. In Arizona, Republican state lawmaker Mark Finchem — who wanted to decertify voting in 2020 and wanted to ban voting machines — on Friday was predicted to lose Democrat Adrian Fontes.
Many other candidates who bought into Trump’s false election claims won. A majority of GOP nominees for the House, Senate and key statewide offices this year — 291 in all — have denied or questioned the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, The Washington Post found. As of Friday, most of them were engineered to win.
Strategists from both parties believed that a good year for Republicans could lead to victory even by candidates with extreme views like Marchant. But Republican hopes for a red wave have not materialized as Democrats grow increasingly optimistic about the overall outcome of the midterms.
