“What would happen if the secretary of state were to refuse to certify Nevada’s election results?”

Las Vegas Sun has a very deep dive on the risk of election denialists becoming Secretaries of State. Prompted specifically by Republican Jim Marchant running for that office in Nevada, the article takes a national as well as state-specific look at the issue.
