Nevada Gov. Sisolak Not Attending Biden Inauguration In DC

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak is not planning to attend President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on Wednesday.

The governor's office says Sisolak and his staff have been in touch with Biden's team and look forward to "a close, productive" and collaborative relationship with the new administration.
