So that means Nevada has no elected Republican officials representing Nevada at the inauguration of the 45th President of The Untied States from the Republican party. Congressman Mark Amodei’s office said he is hosting a party in his district on inauguration day. Amodei represents most of North Nevada which went completely for Trump in the general election. Amodei endorsed Jeb Bush during the primary election but gave his tacit support to Trump during the general election. BTW Democrat Congressman Ruben Kihuen will be attending the inauguration.
