Assemblywoman Valerie Weber addressed a crowd of supporters at a watch party at Stoney's in Las Vegas. The party was hosted by the Clark County and Nevada Republican parties. Weber won the primary and will face Democrat Jeff Campbell in the Nov. 4 general election.

As expected, Larry Brown and Valerie Weber will vie in November for the county commission seat being vacated by Chip Maxfield.

Brown, a city councilman, has defeated Democratic contender Jeff Campbell to secure the party’s nomination for the District C seat. Brown has 77.4 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results. About 75 percent of the precincts are reporting.

Weber, a state assemblywoman, has a commanding lead over four opponents, with 64.1 percent of the vote, also with 75 percent of the precincts reporting.

A Brown-Weber race figures to be one of the more fierce in the valley through the Nov. 4 general election. Both are fairly well-known and the district is balanced between Democrats and Republicans, though the Republicans hold a slight advantage.
