LAS VEGAS (AP) - A little-known Democrat challenger has won his party's gubernatorial primary and will make a longshot bid to unseat Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval in November.
Robert Goodman, a retired state economic development commissioner, emerged Tuesday from a field of eight candidates that included a casino executive, a lawyer, an artist and a radio show host.
State Democratic Party leaders were unable to persuade any high-profile candidates to take on the hugely popular governor who already has raised more than $3 million in campaign funds and easily dispatched of four challengers in Tuesday's GOP primary.
