CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) _ New voter registration numbers show Republicans retain a big edge over Democrats in Nevada's 2nd Congressional District where a special election is pending.
The secretary of state's office says the number of total active voters in the district fell by 4,625 voters in May from the previous month. Republicans outnumber Democrats by 30,490.
A special election is set for Sept. 13 to fill the House seat after Gov. Brian Sandoval appointed Rep. Dean Heller to the U.S. Senate, replacing John Ensign.
But a legal challenge over how the election will be held is pending with the Nevada Supreme Court, and justices have hinted they might seek a postponement to the election to allow more time to vet the arguments.
