Assembly Candidate Who Lost Race Drops Challenge of Results

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Republican Nevada Assembly candidate who lost her race says she’s dropping a legal challenge of the election results.

Connie Foust says she withdrew from her case on Tuesday, a day after a Las Vegas judge ruled against three other candidates with similar challenges.

Foust lost by more than 700 votes, or 22 percentage points, in a race against incumbent Assemblyman Chris Edwards. He represents a district that includes Mesquite.

Foust was one of six anti-tax Republicans who lost and contested the results, saying they believed there may have been glitches in voting machines. Only one case is still active.

Foust says she felt she had a good case, but didn’t have a lawyer and thought she would be wasting time and taxpayer resources in the pursuit.
