LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Republican lawyer and veteran has formally announced he's running for a southern Nevada congressional seat.
Noah Malgeri's campaign announced his candidacy on Wednesday in an online video introducing himself as an Army combat veteran and inventor of a vehicle roof rack for recreational equipment who is running for Nevada's 3rd Congressional District.
He said he will fight for the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms, be a staunch supporter of Israel and push to finish former President Donald Trump's plan to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. He claimed in his video that there was rampant fraud in the 2020 election, though Nevada election officials, including the Republican secretary of state, have repeatedly said the results were accurate and reliable.
Malgeri is the former executive director of the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada’s Pro Bono Project, which provides free legal assistance to those who cannot afford an attorney.
Republicans April Becker, Mark Robertson, John Kovacs and Reinier Prijten have all filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission as candidates for the race.
The House seat is considered a political swing district and is held by Democrat Susie Lee, who is seeking reelection after winning by three percentage points in 2020.
