The Nevada Current reports:
Former vice-president Mike Pence and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott have filed to compete in Nevada’s Feb. 6 state-run presidential primary. Pence filed Thursday, and Scott filed Friday. Under legislation enacted in 2021, the state is required to hold presidential primaries. The Nevada State Republican Party has opposed the primary, and earlier this year announced it would instead hold a caucus on Feb. 8, two days after the primary.
The state party has declared that anyone who filed for the state-run primary will not be allowed to compete in the party-run caucus. The Republican caucus has also been criticized as a made-for Trump affair. The chairman of the state Republican Party, Michael McDonald, and the party’s Nevada national committeeman, Jim DeGraffenried, were fake electors who participated in the Trump scheme to overturn the 2020 election results.
