LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge in Las Vegas refused to order a new election for a Republican state Senate candidate who argued that ballot discrepancies reported by Clark County's top elections official might have made a difference in her 631-vote loss to the Legislature's top Democrat.

Judge Joe Hardy Jr. said Tuesday that GOP candidate April Becker's effort to force a re-vote can be re-filed as a contest-of-election against incumbent state Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro.


In other election cases, a hearing was set in a voter fraud case filed by Trump campaign attorneys, and another judge was due Tuesday to take up failed GOP candidate Dan Rodimer's bid for a re-do of voting in his race.
