CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Former Democratic Party Chairwoman Roberta Lange got a big endorsement from former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid but is trailing a sitting assemblywoman in a hotly contested Las Vegas-area state senate race.

Lange also was backed by the influential Las Vegas' Culinary Union Local 226.

But results released early Wednesday morning showed Lange trailing Assemblywoman Ellen Spiegel 40% to 33%.

The primary was largely conducted with mailed-in ballots.

The Nevada Secretary of State is scheduled to update vote totals on Thursday.
