‘One step further’: Biden wins Nevada Democratic primary

President Joe Biden won the Democratic nomination Tuesday night in Nevada’s presidential preference primary, bringing the likelihood of a 2024 rematch between him and Donald Trump closer to reality.

“I want to thank the voters of Nevada for sending me and Kamala Harris to the White House four years ago, and for setting us one step further on that same path again tonight,” Biden said in a statement Tuesday. “We must organize, mobilize, and vote. Because one day, when we look back, we’ll be able to say, when American democracy was a risk, we saved it — together.”

The Associated Press called the race for Biden at 8:39 p.m. with 14 percent of the votes counted. By 12 a.m., over 85 percent of the votes had been counted.

On a rainy Election Day, Biden had received nearly 90 percent of the votes as of 12:00 a.m. Another Democratic candidate, Marianne Williamson, received less than 3 percent, and “none of these candidates” received 5.8 percent.

The 46th president made campaign stops in Las Vegas on Sunday and Monday, engaging with supporters and encouraging them to elect Democrats up and down the ballot this year.

His likely GOP opponent, former President Trump, will participate in the Nevada Republican Party’s caucuses on Thursday, when he is likely to be confirmed as the Silver State’s GOP pick for 2024. Trump is expected to attend a caucus watch party Thursday night in Las Vegas.

Patricia Donley, 78, said casting her ballot for Biden was a no-brainer at the Nellis Shopping Center in Las Vegas.

Biden has smarter advisers around him, better knowledge of foreign affairs and generally brings dignity to the country, she said. Overall, Donley said she’s been satisfied with what he’s done as president.

Donley isn’t thrilled about a likely Trump-Biden rematch but maintains that Biden is the better choice.
