Las Vegas attorney Nicolas Leger edged out former City Councilman Richard Maestas in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.
In the District 5 race, Leger got 573 votes, or 52 percent, to Maestas’ 534, or 48 percent. District 5 covers parts of the east and west sides of Las Vegas as well as much of eastern San Miguel County.
Leger will face Republican Fred Romero in the November general election.
Leger appeared to be better funded in the race, running many newspaper advertisements as well as radio ads. Maestas didn’t have much in the way of advertising.
