The latest in Nevada

Nov. 17, 2021

On Nov. 16, the governor signed into law a new map — slightly amended from Democrats’ original proposal — that will “unpack” the solidly blue 1st District in an attempt to shore up Democratic prospects in two other seats, which they currently control but are competitive. The map features three seats that all favor Democrats by low single-digit margins and one seat that favors Republicans by double digits.

Hispanic advocacy groups, however, are unhappy with the map, as it splits up Las Vegas’s Hispanic community, thus diluting its political influence. While 41 percent of the voting-age population in the current 1st District is Hispanic, no district in the new map has a Hispanic VAP above 32 percent.
