The four emails, part of a set of 40 that were reviewed and ordered to be released by a judge following a lengthy public records lawsuit, detail a handful of communications in 2021 between Lombardo and his top campaign consultants in his campaign for governor — Mike Slanker of November, Inc. and Ryan Erwin of Red Rock Strategies.
