Nevada 2nd District Election Results

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/13


The left-of-center Republican John McCain barely squeaked by in this district in his Presidential run in 2008. Expect an easy Republican win.

As of 8:03pm local time, with 16 of 858 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) leads Marshall (D) 64 percent to 32 percent.

UPDATE 8:19pm local time: With 65 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) leads Marshall (D) 56 to 39.

UPDATE 8:35pm local time: With 138 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) leads Marshall (D) 58 to 36.

UPDATE 8:53pm local time: With 362 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) leads Marshall (D) 57 to 37. With an 18,500 vote lead, I’m calling this one for Amodei.

UPDATE 9:05pm local time: THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HAS CALLED IT FOR AMODEI (R).
With 375 of 858 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) leads Marshall (D) 57 to 37.

UPDATE 9:20pm local time: With 582 of 858 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) leads Marshall (D) 57 to 37, with a 22,000 vote advantage. Remember, the left of center Republican John McCain barely beat Obama in the 2008 Presidential election with a statistical 49 to 49 tie.

UPDATE 9:42pm local time: With 691 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) continues to lead Marshall (D) 57 to 37, and has a 23,000 vote advantage.

UPDATE 9:57pm local time: With 718 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) leads Marshall (D) 58 to 37, with a 24,000 vote advantage. Amodei wins very easily in this anti-climactic special election.

UPDATE 10:22pm local time: With 785 of 858 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) continues to lead Marshall (D) 58 to 37, with a 25,500 vote advantage.

UPDATE 10:47pm local time: With 825 precincts reporting, Amodei (R) leads Marshall (D) 58 to 36, with a 27,000 vote advantage in a district that McCain barely won 49 to 49 over Obama in 2008, in a state Obama won 55.2 to 42.7. I suggest this is a harbinger of things to come in 2012 and Obama could quite easily lose Nevada to the Republican.

UPDATE 11:42pm local time: All 858 precincts have reported in. The unofficial results are Amodei (R) 74,976 (58 percent), Marshall (D) 46,669 (36 percent). Marshall did not win a single county.
