In a surprising move on Thursday, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak vetoed a bill to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
According to a Washington Times report, Sisolak argued that this Compact would reduce the influence small states like Nevada have during presidential elections.
In Sisolak’s view, this agreement would upset the balance that the Founding Fathers wanted between small and large states and “could leave a sparsely populated Western state like Nevada with a greatly diminished voice in the outcome of national electoral contests.”
In his signing statement, Sisolak said “For these reasons, and in the best interests of the Great State of Nevada, I veto this bill and return it without my signature or approval.”
Sisolak is the first Democrat governor to reject the National Popular Vote, which mandates that electors in states who are part of the compact vote for the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote, instead of the candidate who wins the state.
Bitter Democrats have embraced the National Popular vote in order to avoid a repeat of the 2016 presidential race, where Hilary Clinton won the popular vote, but Donald Trump won the electoral college.
Although this compact would not get rid of the Electoral College, it would essentially become irrelevant. So far in 2019, three governors in Democrat states — Colorado, Delaware and New Mexico — have signed NPV bills into laws. There are now 15 states with NPV laws.
The compact would not eliminate the Electoral College but would render it irrelevant. This year, Democratic governors in three states — Colorado, Delaware and New Mexico — have signed NPV bills, bringing the number of signatories to 15.
NPV supporters argue that this compact would make every vote more valuable and divert attention away from a handful of swing states during presidential elections. Opponents on the other hand argue that smaller, more rural states would be effectively pushed out by the NPV.
With a Democratic trifecta in control, Nevada could still see other leftist pieces of legislation pass during its legislative session.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump
Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.
Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.
On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.
“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto. “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not, he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”
Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil. No, no, it’s not true. I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”
“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019. Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.
The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago. According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.
Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.
However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
