LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada congressional candidate who came in second place in the Republican primary has conceded the race and abandoned a bid for a recount.

Niger Innis' campaign issued a statement saying Innis called state Assemblyman Cresent Hardy on Monday, about two weeks after the election, and congratulated him on the win.

Hardy received 43 percent of the vote in the 4th Congressional District race, while Innis took 33 percent and Mike Monroe earned 22 percent.

Innis questioned how Monroe made such a strong showing while conducting virtually no campaign activities. He said his campaign team conducted its own preliminary probe into the vote tallies, but determined a full investigation would be expensive and time-consuming.

Innis said it's time to back Hardy in his bid to unseat Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford.
