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.

America First Patriot Kris Kobach Believes Democrats are Using the Wuhan Virus Crisis to Push Socialism
U.S. Senate Candidate Kris Kobach believes Democrats are politicizing the Wuhan Virus to push socialist policies.
He asserted, “Many Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to launch a full-bore push for socialism—making the socialist rhetoric of the early Democratic presidential debates look tepid by comparison.”
The former Kansas Secretary of State believes that Democrats are taking advantage of the Wuhan Virus pandemic to push for a “centralized, national health care system.”
That means “No more private insurance, private clinics, or private hospitals.”
Kobach correctly notes that “the communist country [China] that unleashed this plague upon the world was the epitome of centralized control.”
But for radical Democrats, that does not even enter the equation. For them, it’s control at all costs.
Sanders is not alone.
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo established a state-run hand sanitizer factory, and has even threatened the use of state power to control prices. This is only a testing ground for even larger collectivist schemes.
From a big picture perspective, Kobach understands what Democrats’ endgame is with these calls for government involvement in the economy during the pandemic:
Many on the Left are also calling for massive expansions of the welfare state that have little or nothing to do with the coronavirus. This is what the socialist Left has been demanding for decades. Their demands aren’t about bringing the coronavirus crisis to a swift close; they are about enlarging the dependency class. They are exploiting the coronavirus for all it’s worth.
Kobach called attention to how private companies such as General Motors and Tesla are stepping up to the plate to produce ventilators, when many naysayers only think the state should be involved.
In his view, “Only a robust private sector free from government regulation will be able to pull the American economy out of the impending recession when this crisis is over.”
Kobach gets it.
The former Kansas Secretary of State is a certified immigration patriot and understands the value of limited government.
He’s the only choice for America First patriots who believe in constitutional governance.
