Cegavske Wins NV Secretary of State Race

By  | 

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Longtime Republican state lawmaker Barbara Cegavsske has defeated Democrat Kate Marshall to become Nevada's next secretary of state.

The state senator from Las Vegas was among a host of candidates Republicans were hoping would benefit from Gov. Brian Sandoval's coattails in his landslide re-election Tuesday night. She served six years in the Assembly and the last 12 in the Senate.

Marshall is a former Nevada deputy attorney general who is finishing up her second term as state treasurer.

Both candidates were termed out of their current jobs.
