The city of Reno is located in Nevada. Republicans had targeted three swing seats in the western battleground state of Nevada in their attempt to take control of the U.S. House.

In close congressional races that attracted tens of millions of dollars in outside spending to Las Vegas and surrounding parts of southern Nevada, Reps. Dina, Steven, and Susie Lee all held off GOP challengers.

The vote count took several days because of the mail voting system that Nevada has in place.

It had become one of the most consequential elections in the history of the country.

Despite deep divisions in the electorate, there will be no new faces in Nevada's House delegation next year.

Mark Amodei, a Republican from Nevada, was re-elected to his seat in the 2nd District, where no Democrat has ever won.

Since he won his first full term in a special election in 2011, Amodei has carried at least half of the vote. Rural areas from south of Lake Tahoe to the Utah line are included in his district.

In Las Vegas, where the GOP had hoped to win the 1st District seat for the first time in over a decade, Republican Mark Robertson was defeated by the incumbent.

The dean of Nevada's congressional delegation had complained that Democratic strategists made her vulnerable for the first time in years by sacrificing some traditional turf in exchange for gains in nearby swing districts.

She issued a statement thanking her supporters after becoming convinced that she had survived.

The voters wanted someone in their corner who wouldn't back down from a fight.

Robertson, a retired Army colonel and business owner, conceded the race Friday and made it clear he wouldn't make voter fraud accusations like Donald Trump and others did after the 2020 election.

Robertson said that Representative Democracy works like this. The Democrats have a ten-point registration advantage over us in this district.

The two seats that have changed hands over the past decade were both on the GOP's priority list.

In the 4th District, which stretches from the edges of Las Vegas through suburbs and rural areas to the Utah border, Democrat Steven Horsford won a fourth term.

He was the first black person to represent Nevada in congress. He has won three in a row since losing in the previous year.

Peters was defeated in the GOP congressional primary. He was the one who supported Trump the most.

Lee won a third term in southern Nevada's 3rd District by emphasizing her support for abortion rights.

She said voters respected each other over divisions and extremists.

Two years ago, Becker tried to oust the state Senate leader. She stressed that abortion is legal in Nevada through 24 weeks under a voter approved measure.

Many of Nevada's independent voters supported her, she told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday.

The independents are swing voters. Many people thought they would swing right. reproductive choice was a big driver and they were worried about inflation but they recognized that one party was trying to deliver results.

Lee said that voters in Nevada were concerned about inflation, but that Democrats were the only ones who could address it.

She told the AP that Republicans had no idea how to deal with it.

Lee said, "Ask any Republican in Congress what they would do, and their only suggestion was to lower corporate taxes and taxes on the rich." The biggest investment in climate change in history was made by us.

Steve Sisolak was the incumbent governor. In Nevada's critical U.S. Senate race, the Democratic senator was slightly behind her opponent.
