Most votes from Tuesday’s primary election have been counted across Nevada, with winners declared in several key races:

Primary Election Results in Federal Races
This November, Nevada voters will decide whether to send incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, who overwhelmingly won the Democratic primary, back to the U.S. Senate. She will face former state Attorney General Adam Laxalt, who won the Republican primary, in what will likely be one of the nation’s most competitive U.S. Senate races.

Nevada’s four congressional races are also taking shape:

  • In the 1st Congressional District, incumbent Rep. Dina Titus defended her seat in the Democratic primary. She will face Republican Col. Mark Robertson, who won against seven other primary candidates.
  • In the 2nd Congressional District, incumbent Rep. Mark Amodei defeated four GOP primary challengers and will now face educator Elizabeth Mercedes Krause in the general election.
  • In the 3rd Congressional District, incumbent Rep. Susie Lee easily won the Democratic primary and will face real estate attorney April Becker in the general election.
  • In the 4th Congressional District, incumbent Rep. Steven Horsford had no challenger in the Democratic primary but will face insurance executive Sam Peters in the general election.

Primary Election Results in State Races
After easily winning the Democratic primary, incumbent Gov. Steve Sisolak will face Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo in the general election. Sheriff Lombardo bested 15 candidates to win the Republican primary.

After winning the Democratic primary, incumbent Lieutenant Governor Lisa Cano Burkhead will face Las Vegas Councilman Stavros Anthony, who won the GOP primary, in the general election.

Nevada’s contest for Secretary of State has generated national attention after some – including former state assemblymember Jim Marchant, who won the GOP primary – have questioned the validity of the 2020 presidential election results. Marchant will face Cisco Aguilar, who ran unopposed in the Democratic primary, with the victor set to run the state’s future elections.

Other statewide races on the ballot included attorney general, treasurer, controller, and five seats on the state Board of Regents.

In the race for Attorney General, Democratic incumbent Aaron Ford easily defeated one challenger, and Sigal Chattah beat Tisha Black in the Republican primary. Incumbent Treasurer Zach Conine, unopposed in the Democratic primary, will face Republican Las Vegas Councilwoman Michele Fiore in the general election.

Nevada’s Controller, the state’s chief fiscal officer, is open after incumbent Catherine Byrne announced she’s leaving office. Democratic former Assemblywoman Ellen Spiegel and Republican sports journalist Andy Matthews will face off in November to replace Byrne.

Primary Election Results in Other Races
Nevada also held numerous state legislative, county, and city primaries.

Clark County Commission Chair Jim Gibson, a Democrat, is running for reelection in District G. The Clark County Elections Department has not counted enough votes to decide who will win the Republican primary, which pit U.S. Navy veteran Billy Mitchell against former candidate Joe Ludwig.

The Las Vegas City Council has three seats open in 2022:

  • Incumbent Ward 2 Councilwoman Victoria Seaman won her race with over 50% of the vote.
  • Former Councilman Bob Beers led the race to replace Stavros Anthony as Ward 4 Councilman, with former Assemblywoman Francis Allen-Palenske close behind.
  • Ward 6 Councilwoman Michele Fiore ran for state treasurer and the race to succeed her is led by think tank leader Nancy Brune and police Lieutenant Ray Spencer.

Councilwoman Michelle Romero will succeed Debra March as mayor of Henderson. March opted to run for lieutenant governor but lost in the Democratic primary.

Trish Nash leads a six-candidate race to replace incumbent John Marz on the Henderson City Council (Ward 3). She will face Carrie Cox, who received the second-most primary votes, in the general election.
