Republicans Expel Tarkanians From Committee

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - GARDNERVILLE, NV – August 11, 2022 – The Douglas County Republican Central Committee removed Danny and Amy Tarkanian’s memberships tonight. Mr. Tarkanian promoted voting for Nevada State Treasurer candidate Zach Conine while Ms. Tarkanian endorsed Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford and Treasurer Conine.

The Tarkanians voluntarily joined our Committee at the Douglas County Convention earlier this year, agreeing to follow our Douglas County Republican Central Committee Bylaws and elect Republicans. More than 110,000 Republican primary voters chose Sigal Chattah and Michele Fiore to carry our Republican brand into office November 8th.

Since she was asked to resign as Nevada Republican Party Chair eleven years ago, after just seven months in office, Ms. Tarkanian has not been involved in any Republican Party planning, fund raising, events, and absolutely no strategy. Neither Tarkanian has substantial connection to Nevada Republican politics.

Ms. Tarkanian’s support for the corrupt Nevada Attorney General, Democrat Aaron Ford, is revealing. Rather than honor his oath of office, AG Ford stood silent for Governor Sisolak’s unconstitutional, ineffective, and abusive lockdown that destroyed Nevada’s economy, significantly damaging the lives of hard-working Nevadans.

While Aaron Ford was silent, Republican AG candidate Sigal Chattah won a victory for Nevadans to open churches and Treasurer candidate Michele Fiore continued her full-throated defense of individual rights and conservative principles.

Ms. Tarkanian joining “Republicans for Ford” ties her to former Nevada Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson who led the effort to pass the 2015 Commerce Tax, a treasonous move against the Nevada Republican Platform. This massive funding increase has done nothing to move Nevada schools from the bottom of the list nationally but has significantly damaged our Republican Party brand.

The Tarkanians have made the choice to serve themselves and their elite friends. Our Douglas County Republican Central Committee made its choice and in accordance with our Bylaws, and after affording The Tarkanians the opportunity to state their case before our membership, with unanimous votes to remove each, we expelled them.

The Douglas County Republican Central Committee proudly supports Sigal Chattah and Michele Fiore as they seek to make Nevada a safe haven for law-abiding, fiscally responsible, freedom loving citizens.

We remind Nevadans that the November 8, 2022 election is only 89 days away. Douglas County voters will decide on US Congressional, statewide Nevada Constitutional, and state legislative seats, as well as three school board seats between CRT / SEL promoting, Democrat-backed candidates and the real conservative candidates that will fight for and protect your children and parental rights.
