LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Monday was the first day for candidates to file for the 2022 Primary Elections in Nevada.

Gov. Steve Sisolak filed for re-election, he announced on Twitter:

"I'm running proudly on what we've accomplished together here in Nevada these last few years and I'm honored to have so many of you with me in this fight," he wrote. "Now let's go win this!"

At least 10 Republicans have announced their intent to challenge Sisolak for the governor's office. Dean Heller, former U.S. senator for Nevada, announced he would file his candidacy on Tuesday in Carson City.

Henderson Mayor Debra March, who previously announced her campaign for lieutenant governor, also officially filed for office on Monday. U.S. Air Force veteran Tony Grady also filed as a Republican candidate for lieutenant governor.

The 2022 Primary Election is scheduled for June 4, and early voting begins May 28.
