“I am honored and humbled to be elected as Chairman by the Precinct Committee Officers of the Clark County Republican Party (CCRP). One of my campaign promises was to work with my team toward unity in the CCRP, and based on the election results, it is clear that is what the members wish for,” he said in a news release. “I hope to work with all members of the party, both those who voted for me and those who did not, and invite everyone to reach out to me with their suggestions and ideas. Together, we will work toward building a large coalition party that will be a winning force in Clark County politics, electing Republicans now and into the future.”
