(Sep. 8) -- State Assemblyman Wendell Williams lost to a political newcomer for House District 6. The Assembly incumbent was beaten by his challenger Harvey Munford by a 57 to 43 percent margin.
Williams was fired from his Las Vegas job for getting paid by the city while he was working in Carson City and for using a city cell phone for personal use. He didn't do any interviews, but the man who beat him said, "I think that many of the voters in District 6 felt they want to see a new change. Wanted to see better government. They felt this was the time for it," said Harvey Munford (D).
Munford will run against Republican Cornell Clark in the November general election.
