Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) on Thursday vetoed a bill which would have pledged the states six electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote for President of the United States.
Once effective, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact could diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests and force Nevadas electors to side with whoever wins the nationwide popular vote, rather than the candidate Nevadans choose, a statement via Sisolak reads. I recognize that many of my fellow Nevadans may disagree on this point and I appreciate the legislatures thoughtful consideration of this important issue. As Nevadas governor, I am obligated to make such decisions according to my own conscience. In cases like this, where Nevadas interests could diverge from the interests of large states, I will always stand up for Nevada.

Wow Good for him.
This guy understands it.
He’s smart enough to get that it will encourage those in heavily Rat states like California, that don’t even bother voting, to actually have some incentive to vote.
A state like Cali-FORNI-Cate can displace the votes of the Midwest and the South by their CORRUPT policies...
Doing the work, the GOP-e refuses to do.
I’m shocked frankly
Wow, a RAT who actually did something right. Unbelievable.
Any chance we can flip this guy?
Amazing these days to find a Democrat who remains a patriot—or even rational. Good for him.
A Democrat not willing to just jump on the latest liberal hobbyhorse. These days its extraordinary
Good. Now let them try to override it. If they can. If they dare. A stupid idea whose time has gone.
Smart move. Even smarter because NPV is a horribly stupid idea for reasons that most Freepers know.
That is quite charitable. He might have also told the members of the legislature to get their heads out of rear defilade. But he didn't.
I’ll give him a pat on the back for this.
What an odd surprise. Must be he figured out that completion of the NPV would result in no more Demwit POTUS. Thanks bobsunshine.
One sane Democrat.
Pigs DO fly!!
Boy is he in trubble with Kamala and Spartacus now
Maybe they’ll boycott state travel to Vegas
I guess one of them managed to slip through the public schools and actually READ the Constitution.
So now he will be on the liberal hit list for this.
In Louisiana, Democrat governor Edwards is expected to sign a restrictive abortion law, which will put him on the hit list too.
Democrats may well purge these guys, stay tuned.
Finally a blue state Democrat that stands up for the citizens of their states instead of capitulating to what California wants. Too bad Colorado’s Governor (Jared Polis) was born in California and dances to that state’s tune.
