A year into his campaign for governor, Joe Lombardo continues to avoid questions on his abortion stance. When he does answer questions, he is “unclear” at best. Voters are already heading to the polls and he’s left them completely in the dark about where he stands.

POLITICO: Abortion access could soon be decided by the states. Here’s what the next governors say.
Q: Do you support the draft opinion’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade?
A: Unclear. Lombardo’s campaign did not respond directly to POLITICO’s questions…
Q: Do you support your state’s current abortion laws on the books? What, if any, changes do you believe should be made?
A: Unclear. In an interview with KRNV, before the draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe was published, Lombardo said: “I support the existing laws that are in the state of Nevada.” But during a debate hosted by KLAS in late May, Lombardo said he would “absolutely” consider additional restrictions, such as a waiting period.
Q: Should there be gestational limits on abortion procedures?
A: “I don’t support any change in that dynamic, but I also support pro-life,” he said during an interview with KRNV. “So I don’t wish it to be any less restrictive than it currently is.” Lombardo also told a Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist he would support a 13-week ban, should voters support it.
