Primary results follow early pattern of votes

Early results in this month’s primary continue to be reaffirmed as additional ballots in the mail-in election are counted.

As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, Clark County Elections Department reported a 26.79 percent voter turnout. Results will remain unofficial until they are formally canvassed.

Rep. Susie Lee easily won the Democratic race in her bid to retain her Congressional District 3 seat. She received 49,091 votes, 82.82 percent.

In November she will face Republican challenger Dan Rodimer, a businessman and former professional wrestler, who received 25,086 votes, 49.82 percent. Former state treasurer Dan Schwartz remained in second place with 13,654 or 27.11 percent of the votes.

They will vie against Independent American candidate Ed Bridges II, Libertarian Steve Brown and Gary Crispin, who is not affiliated with any party.

With only one candidate per party for state Assembly District 23 seat, incumbent Glen Leavitt will wait until the general to vie against challengers Democrat Brent Foutz and Independent American Bill Hoge.

Lisa Guzman, executive director of the Education Support Employees Association, retained her lead with 13,596 votes, or 26.09 percent, in the race to represent District A on the Clark County School District’s Board of Trustees.
