Dr. Robin Titus, R-Smith Valley, has announced she will run for the Nevada Senate in District 17.
That district includes several western and Northern Nevada counties.
The current holder of that seat is Sen. James Settelmeyer of Gardnerville who is term limited and will leave the post after the 2022 election.
Titus, a medical doctor, is the Assembly Republican leader who describes herself as “a pragmatic conservative policy setter, who prioritizes individual liberty, constitutional rights and personal choices.”
“My entire career I have been a Nevada rural doctor and small business owner and I remain the Lyon County health officer, but after leaving active practice, I felt compelled to continue to serve my community and state through thoughtful conservative policy setting in the state Legislature,” she said.
She will launch her campaign with a fundraising event in Reno at 11:30 a.m. on Dec. 17 at Bistro 7 on South Virginia Street.
She said a “red wave” is coming in 2022.
“But we must not fight amongst ourselves and allow the Democrats to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat,” she said.
She committed to running a positive, policy-centered primary campaign.
Senate District 17 includes all of Douglas, Lyon, Churchill Esmeralda and Mineral counties and part of Nye County. That map, however, is being challenged in court and Titus said the boundaries could change somewhat.
Douglas County Republican Assemblyman Jim Wheeler is also considering a run for the SD17 seat.
