Democrats Beat Republicans in Donkeys-Elephants Basketball Classic, 67-56

Posted: Updated:

Local Democrats and Republicans took their rivalry to the basketball court Saturday morning.

The Donkeys-Elephants Basketball Classic was played for the 8th time at Lawlor Events Center.

Governor Brian Sandoval led the Republicans, while the Democrats were led by Secretary of State Ross Miller.

Going into this game, the GOP led the series, five games to two. On Saturday, the Democrats got the win over the Republicans, 67-56.

We got reactions from both sides after the game.

"It was a tough game," Secretary of State Miller said. "Governor Sandoval played a great game and they had a couple solid players, but this year, it worked out for us."

"We came up a little short, but I'm real proud of our team," Governor Sandoval said. "We played real hard, and everyone had a lot of fun, and nobody got hurt!"

This game wasn't all about bragging rights, though. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to help senior citizens in our community through the Foster Grandparent Program of the Elvirita Lewis Foundation. It's an organization that helps maintain the dignity and productivity of the senior citizens.
