Stephen F. “Steve” Sisolak (born December 26, 1953, age 68) is a businessman and liberal Democrat currently serving as the Governor of Nevada, having been elected to the position during the 2018 midterms. Previously, he served in the Clark County Commission, having been the chair from 2013 to 2019.

In October 2021, Sisolak was cited for causing an accident with an illegal turn despite many witnesses stating Sisolak seemed impaired. In body cam footage Sisolak seemed to be impaired, and his wife was allowed by officers to remove “garbage” from the car before they went through it after apparently coming from a party.
Sisolak ran for and won the 2018 Nevada gubernatorial election, defeating Republican opponent Adam Laxalt by 4% of the vote. This coincided with the concurrent Senate election where then-incumbent RINO senator Dean Heller lost to Democrat Jacky Rosen by a similar margin.

In late March 2020 amidst the CCP pandemic, Gov. Sisolak signed an executive order that limited patients with coronavirus from accessing hydroxychloroquine as a combative measure to recover. He was later found having hoarded the drug, reportedly so it could go to prisoners. Sisolak was also later sued in late April by doctors, and it was noted that his Chief Medical Officer did not have a license to practice medicine.
Sisolak has been threatening the state with additional lockdown restrictions, even while virus cases were declining. Notably, churches were placed on severe restrictions while casinos were allowed to open with far fewer ones, and when a church decided to meet in a casino, he fined them.
