Giffords Endorses Governor Steve Sisolak for Reelection in Nevada

Washington DC — Giffords PAC, the gun safety organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, announced its endorsement of Governor Steve Sisolak for reelection in Nevada.

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords: 

“Governor Sisolak has never backed down from protecting Nevadans from gun violence. Throughout his career, Governor Sisolak has fought tirelessly to make Nevada a better, safer place to live. In office, he has led efforts to protect the children and families of his state from senseless violence by banning bump stocks, closing the gun show loophole, and implementing universal background checks. Governor Sisolak is a gun safety champion with the courage to lead and we are proud to endorse him today. We look forward to continuing our work with Governor Sisolak to enact solutions that will keep Nevada schools, streets, churches, and neighborhoods safe.”

Governor Steve Sisolak:

“I will always fight to protect every Nevada community and we’ve made important progress since 2019 to do just that. I applaud Giffords PAC for their work to demand safer communities across the country and to create a future free from gun violence. I look forward to working together to make Nevada a safer place to visit and to call home.”

For Governor Sisolak and members of his community, the fight to end gun violence is personal. On October 1, 2017, a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing 60 people and injuring hundreds more. At the time of the attack, Governor Sisolak was serving as chair of the Clark County Commission, and he saw the devastation of this horrific incident firsthand. 

In the aftermath, he pledged to do more to protect the children and families of his community from senseless violence. In office, Governor Sisolak has delivered on this promise by signing numerous commonsense gun safety reforms into law—including legislation to crack down on the proliferation of dangerous, untraceable ghost guns.

Governors across the country are making real progress in the fight to end gun violence, and leaders like Steve Sisolak must be reelected this fall. Governor Steve Sisolak is a battleborn champion who won’t quit until every child can grow up in a world free from senseless violence. With him leading the charge, a safer future is possible.
