Who says Jimmy Kimmel does not support Republicans?
The talk show host of the night, Jimmy Kimmel, announced his support for a Republican (a lifelong friend) who is running for a police officer in North Las Vegas.
Kimmel appeared in a video of the campaign endorsing Jimmy Vega, whom he has known since they were 12 years old. The presenter of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" He said he was proud of Vega for running.
Vega, 51, had been in the military for 25 years and is currently in the naval reserves, he said.
"For me it was a problem of integrity, is that, you know, you work hard, not all are destined to be policemen, not all are destined to be firemen, not all are destined to be military." You have to go through your possible training camps or academies to win it, and that's how I feel, I feel like you just have to win everything in life, "Vega said.
Kimmel has voiced criticism of President Donald Trump and many Republican policies. But Vega said it's not about partisanship.
"It's just doing the right thing and helping people, and that's what I plan to do," he said. "This race should not be a partisan race anyway, we are agents of the law, we do not create law, we only enforce the law."
North Las Vegas is "saturated" with veterans, according to Vega, and has a passion for supporting veterans, he said. Vega said he wants to grow the department.
"There are many things that the current commissioner is not doing and I intend to do," he said.
According to Nevada law, police officers are considered peace officers, according to Nevada law. Their duties include evictions and the convocation of juries for the judges of peace.
Kimmel and Vega laugh throughout the video, while the comedian tells some jokes, including some about the eviction part of the sheriff's job.
Both graduated from Clark High School, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
