Group trying to recall Sisolak far short of required signatures halfway through signature-gathering period

A group that seeks to recall Gov. Steve Sisolak has a fraction of the signatures it needs to trigger a vote to remove him from office.

The Nevada secretary of state’s office reported that “Fight for Nevada,” the group that filed the recall petition, had 15,897 signatures statewide by the halfway point in the signature-gathering period. It needs about 243,995 signatures by mid-May to qualify the petition.

Fight for Nevada gave the state notice in mid-February that it planned to launch the petition. The group’s website says the Democratic governor “has placed himself and his Office in an adversarial position against the majority of Nevada residents, and does not, in any way, represent Nevada values.”

The group’s list of grievances include Sisolak’s actions on gun control, abortion and water well metering.

The signature threshold reflects 25 percent of the 976,320 people who voted in Nevada's 2018 general election.
