Pat Spearman

Pat Spearman

Nevada District 04

Pat Spearman is a leader in every space she inhabits. Whether it was during her 29 years of service in the U.S. Army where she quickly rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel, her election to the San Marcos Independent School Board where she chosen by her colleagues to serve as President after 6 months in office, or being named Chair of the Legislative Operations and Elections Committee after her first term in the Nevada State Senate, Pat is known as a tireless advocate for resources for veterans, equal pay for equal work and LGBTQ+ rights.  

Pat has built a network of grassroots supporters that allowed her to defeat the incumbent in her campaign for state Senate with 63 percent of the vote despite being out spent fifteen to one.  

As an ordained minister with a Ph.D. in Business Administration focusing on energy policy, Pat carries a breadth and depth of experience not commonly found in Washington.
