LAS VEGAS (AP) – Democratic Rep. Dina Titus has coasted to re-election in an urban Las Vegas district where her party has a two-to-one voter registration advantage.
Titus defeated poorly funded Republican candidate Mary Perry and several other little-known independent and minor party candidates to win a third term.
Titus didn’t have to campaign much for herself, but was an active supporter of Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Catherine Cortez Masto, who wanted strong support among the high number of Latino voters in her district.
She’s a former longtime state lawmaker and served one term in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District before it went Republican.
