CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV) — Former Las Vegas news anchor and reporter Gerard Ramalho has announced he will run for Nevada Secretary of State as a Republican.
Ramalho issued a statement Wednesday declaring his candidacy, saying he would push for a voter ID requirement and eliminating so-called ballot harvesting.
"Like many Nevadans, I have grown increasingly frustrated with the lack of transparency in our election process," Ramalho said. "We need to have confidence that the will of the people is being met and minimize the opportunities special interests have to influence the outcome of our elections."
One-time Congressional candidate Jim Marchant, former Judge Richard Scotti and Sparks City Councilman Kristopher Dahir have all announced their intentions to run for secretary of state as Republicans.
Las Vegas attorney Cisco Aguilar is running for the Democratic nomination.
The current office-holder, Barbara Cegavske, is serving her second and final term.
