Hardy, Kihuen to face off in November, US Senate race also set

Incumbent U.S. Rep. Cresent Hardy easily won the Nevada Fourth Congressional District primary against two challengers. He will now face Democratic nominee Ruben Kihuen, a current state senator, in November’s general election.

Kihuen easily beat closest contenders Lucy Flores, former assemblywoman, and Las Vegas philanthropist Susie Lee in an eight-candidate race en route to nabbing the Democratic nomination.

Catherine Cortez Masto won the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate, the first race declared in Nevada nearly an hour after polls closed. Her victory sets up a showdown for outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s seat with Republican winner Congressman Joe Heck, who beat out eight other candidates for the nomination.

Cortez Masto, the former two-term state attorney general, was hand-picked by Reid to seek the Senate seat.
