LAS VEGAS (AP) - Clark County Republicans have ousted a Ron Paul supporter in favor of a more conventional establishment leader.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the approximately 600 voting members of the county GOP elected David McKeon as chairman Wednesday by secret ballot.

McKeon drew 319 votes.

Cindy Lake, a more libertarian politician who took over the position last year, lost with 276 votes.

When she won last year, Lake said her election proved there was no GOP war on women.

McKeon tells the newspaper the good turnout showed that the county chapter of the GOP was ready fresh leadership.

Lake says she'll stay involved.

The fight was a bitter one, with McKeon's opponents circulating documents about his messy divorce and custody battle.
