Nevadans now know who will move on to the big, November election. The question Wednesday is -- why were the results from Tuesday night's primary election slower coming in than in years past?
Larry Lomax, Registrar of Voters, says the software glitch had nothing to do with the accuracy of the results, but with tabulating the percentage of precincts reporting from the polling machine cartridges.
Some unofficial election results are as follows:
United States Senator (Republican) -- Ziser, Richard - 38%. Representative in Congress District 1 (Democratic) -- Berkley, Shelley - 83.17% Representative in Congress District 3 (Democratic) -- Gallagher, Tom - 69.51% State Senate District 5 (Republican) -- Heck, Joe - 52.45% State Senate District 6 (Republican) -- Beers, Bob - 56.22%
Unofficial results of some tight races:
Rep. in Congress, District 2 (Democrat) -- Bennett, David Jerome - 54.83% State Assembly District 1 (Republican) -- Gobel, Ed - 37.95% State Assembly District 3 (Democrat) -- Pierce, Peggy - 49.96% County Commission District B (Democrat) -- Collins, Ton - 41.49% County Commission District D (Democrat) -- Atkinson-Gates, Yvonne - 63.55% County Commission District F (Republican) -- Boggs-McDonald, Lynette -- 36.18%
(Sep. 8) -- The general election is eight weeks away and now, for the most part, the ballot is set. Incumbent County Commissioner Mary Kincaid-Chauncey, who is under indictment in Operation G-Sting, lost to longtime Assemblyman Tom Collins. Collins got 41-percent of the vote to Kincaid-Chauncey's 17-percent.
The defeated commissioner tells Eyewitness News she lost the race because she was indicted last year in Operation G-Sting. She says she may cross party lines and throw her support behind the winner of the Republican primary, Shari Buck. "I've had a lot of respect for her. We have pretty much the same political philisophy at this moment. I'm probably leaning towards her."
Kincaid-Chauncey says she won't run for public office again. Her term will end in January.
The tightest race of the night was between political newcomer Joe Heck and incumbent State Senator Ann O'Connell. Heck got 52-percent of the vote to O'Connel's 48-percent. Heck will now face Democrat Richard Fitzpatrick. and Libertarian T. Rex Hagen in the November general election.
Former casino executive and Democrat Tom Gallagher will get the chance to try and unseat Congressman Jon Porter . Gallagher won overwhelmingly against five challengers. He garnered 69-percent of the vote, more than twice the number of votes the other five got combined. Porter and Gallagher will be joined by an Independent American candidate and a Libertarian candidate on the November ballot.
