Nevada Democrats Choose ‘None of the Above’ in Gubernatorial Primary

One Arizona candidate recently tried to outsmart voters by changing his name to Cesar Chavez; perhaps a similar sly boots in the Nevada Democratic gubernatorial primary should consider changing his name to “none of the above.”

“None of the above” took a plurality of votes in the Silver State’s Democratic primary Tuesday night, pulling in an unofficial 30% of the vote. The runner up, Robert Goodman, will gain his party’s nomination with 25%, the highest tally amassed by a sentient human who exists and is not a void. He will challenge the popular GOP incumbent Brian Sandoval in the fall.

Per WaPo’s Brian Sullivan, the “none of the above” option dates back to the Watergate days, to combat voter apathy.
