'Stop the Steal' Rallies Held At Nevada State Capital, Las Vegas

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Supporters of President Donald Trump on Wednesday lined the streets outside Nevada's state capital and rallied in front of federal buildings in Las Vegas, as Congress suspended its count of state electoral votes after demonstrators stormed the U.S. Capitol in Washington.

Carrying signs including "Voter fraud is treason," a mostly maskless crowd in Carson City chanted "We want freedom" and demanded federal lawmakers take action to prevent incoming president Joe Biden from taking office.

The protests were among many in cities and state capitals throughout the U.S. Protestors insist a path to a second term remains viable for Trump if Congress takes action.
