Ric Grenell, former acting director of national intelligence, said the Nevada Democratic Party is in “full panic mode” after a decision not to certify a local race due to a number of discrepancies.
And President Donald Trump called the decision a “big victory,” saying it could have a “major impact.”
Their comments came in tweets regarding the Clark County Commission race between Stavros Anthony, a Republican, and Democrat Ross Miller.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Miller defeated Anthony by 10 votes. However, Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said his office identified 139 unexplainable discrepancies in the contest.
According to the Review-Journal, the discrepancies were similar to those discovered throughout the county, including early voting and Election Day check-in errors. There were also issues related to tracking the process of mail ballots.
Since the discrepancies were more than the margin of victory in the commission contest, it called into question the validity of the results of the race, the newspaper said. Now, county officials have directed Gloria to come up with options for a special election to decide the race.
Grenell tweeted Monday night: “Nevada Democrat Party is full panic mode. Clark County throws out an entire race because of fraud. The entire County’s ballots are now suspect - and the Democrat Party is freaking out.”
And Trump tweeted: “Big victory moments ago in the State of Nevada. The all Democrat County Commissioner race, on same ballot as President, just thrown out because of large scale voter discrepancy. Clark County officials do not have confidence in their own election security. Major impact!”
Fox News reported that Joe Biden drew 50.06% of the vote in the state compared to Trump's 47.67%.
