LAS VEGAS — Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo has won Nevada’s Republican primary for governor, NBC News projects. 

With 37 percent of precincts reporting, Lombardo, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, had 43 percent of the vote, while retired professional boxer Joey Gilbert, who was endorsed by the state Republican Party, got 22 percent. Former U.S. Sen. Dean Heller got 12 percent.

Lombardo now advances to the general election to face Gov. Steve Sisolak, considered one of the most vulnerable Democratic governors in the U.S.

Recent polling has shown Lombardo and Sisolak in a virtual tie, through Sisolak’s approval ratings haven't experienced quite the beating of President Joe Biden's or other Democratic governors.

Biden won Nevada two years ago by just 2.4 percentage points — or just under 33,600 votes — and the nonpartisan Cook Political Report has rated the state’s governor's race a toss-up. Sisolak won his first term, in 2018, against Adam Laxalt, now running for U.S. Senate, by about 4 percentage points.
