WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Nevada’s six electors voted for Democrat Joe Biden for president on Monday, confirming the president-elect’s victory in the state in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Biden’s win in the battleground state was challenged in Nevada district court by President Donald Trump’s campaign but a judge dismissed the suit, ruling that the campaign had not supported its claims of fraud and wrongdoing with proof.
