LAS VEGAS (AP) - Feuding factions of the Las Vegas-area Republican Party have emerged from separate meetings with slates of officers.

But the head of the state GOP said Wednesday that only one set will be seated at a statewide leadership meeting next month.

Party chief Michael McDonald says that will be the Clark County Republican Central Committee group headed by Jesse Law.

Law is a former aide to the state GOP and former President Donald Trump’s Nevada campaign who acknowledges support from members associated with the extremist Proud Boys.

A separate faction held a virtual meeting Tuesday and elected state Sen. Carrie Buck as chairwoman. Before she was elected, Buck characterized Law’s group as an “insurgency.”
