LAS VEGAS (AP) - Democrat Kristen Spees has emerged as the winner in her party's 2nd District primary and will face Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei in the November general election.
Spees, an attorney from Incline Village, topped a field of four candidates Tuesday, including Reno physician Vance Alm, Gardnerville store clerk Brian Dempsey and Reno engineer Ed Lee.
Amodei had no primary challenger in the district, which covers the northern part of Nevada and has never elected a Democrat.
The district is 43 percent Republican, 33 percent Democratic and 17 percent registered nonpartisan.
