It may be an off-year in the presidential contest, but the 2022 election season in Nevada has major implications for the balance of power in the U.S. Senate and the trajectory of policy within the swingy Silver State.

Speaker Elizabeth Thompson has been covering Nevada government and politics since 2008. Her television work includes hosting Nevada Week in Review on VegasPBS in 2014, co-hosting the daily political talk show, The Agenda on KSNV News 3 from 2012—2013 and working as the political analyst for KTNV News 13 from 2009—2011. She’s also been published in the Wall Street Journal and National Review Online and has provided analysis and commentary for CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and numerous Nevada television and radio stations.

She is the founder and former publisher (and still sits on the executive board) of the Nevada News Bureau, a nonprofit that serves as the parent company of The Nevada Independent. The Bureau's primary initiative, a news website covering state government and politics, first went live in late 2009 as a media project of Citizen Outreach.
