In Nevada Race, Democratic Rep. Dina Titus Holds Narrow Lead

November 10, 2022

LAS VEGAS – After complaining that a Democratic Legislature and Governor withdrew her district to add more Republican voters, US Rep. Dina Titus was still holding a slim lead in her re-election battle against Army veteran Mark Robertson.

With an estimated 88 percent of votes in, Titus was leading Robertson by 50.6-47 percent, a margin of 3.6 percent, with 2.4 percent going to Libertarian candidate Ken Cavanaugh.

Titus, 73, has held the 1st Congressional District seat since 2013 after representing the 3d Congressional District from 2009-11 before losing.

She was the state Senate Minority Leader from 1993-2009 and before being elected to Congress was a Professor of Political Science at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV.)

The New York Times said that election officials wouldn’t predict how long it would take for the final results after noting that in 2020 it took three days for 90 percent to be reported.

Nevada conducts a predominantly mail-ballot election, and ballots postmarked by Election Day have four days to arrive, leaving the election likely up in the air for days as Republicans seem set to control the House in Congress.

In December, 2021 the five-term incumbent Titus said her precarious position for re-election was the blame of her own party, which had control of the state and Legislature but changed her district.

Titus was referring to a shift of Democrats away from the 1st Congressional district, historically an ironclad safe seat for Democrats, in order to strengthen their position in the state’s two swing districts, said the Deseret News then.

“You read that the Republicans are using gerrymandering to cut out Democratic seats, but they didn’t have to in this state,” she said. “We did it to ourselves.”
