Proud Boys rally in Oregon.

Efforts by the far-right Proud Boys to influence the Nevada Republican Party have created controversy in the state GOP. The Proud Boys, self-described “Western chauvinists,” showed up at party events, anti-mask rallies, and in efforts to overturn Joe Biden’s presidential victory in Nevada. Some party members are concerned about the group’s involvement, but state GOP Chairman Michael McDonald says it’s a non-issue fanned by the news media.
