Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election were debunked by yet another local Republican official on Friday.

Trump lost Nevada to President-elect Joe Biden by 33,596 votes, but has continued to push delusions that the election results should be overturned.

On Friday, Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske put out a “Facts vs. Myths” graphic to debunk Trump’s lies.

One “myth” was that “the Secretary of State has been presented with evidence of wide-spread fraud.” The fact-check noted, “While we are pursing action in a number of isolated cases, we have yet to see any evidence of wide-spread fraud.”

Cegavske has served as Secretary of State since 2015. Prior to her election statewide, Cegavske served almost two-decades as a Republican state legislator.
