NORAH O'DONNELL (HOST): Tonight, a CBS News investigation into dozens of election officials in key battleground states, many have promoted election conspiracies, including false claims about President Biden’s 2020 victory. CBS' Caitlin Huey-Burns reports.


CAITLIN HUEY-BURNS (REPORTER): There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in Washoe or any other county in the U.S., but our new CBS News investigation found there are nearly 80 officials working in election oversight positions across seven swing states, including Nevada, who either don’t believe the 2020 election results, refuse to certify the election, have positively know my publicly supported the actions taken on January 6th, or have pushed election conspiracies.
