Conclusion

Nevada played a significant local and national role in the far-right Stop the Steal movement’s effort to dispute and prevent implementation of the results of the 2020 Presidential election.  There was significant involvement on local and national levels and in the state Republican Party.  There was strong connection with national far right leaders including some known for white supremacist, antisemitic, neo-Nazi and conspiracy theorist commitments and tendencies.  It is likely that similar activity will continue in the state, furthered by skilled national- and local-level organizers in groups such as Battle Born Patriots and Nevada Patriot and by Nevada Republican Party leaders, executives, candidates and legislators.
