Former West Las Vegas mayor Junio Lopez, a Republican, was the new senator from Las Vegas, having adroitly won election in heavily Democratic San Miguel County by taking advantage of the internecine warfare then dividing local Democrats. (How Lopez achieved his victory is recounted in “Junio Lopez and the Alpha News,” Nuestra Historia, April 26, 2013.)
