LAS VEGAS (AP) - A judge in Las Vegas on Wednesday dismissed a case brought by a Republican congressional candidate that asked for a re-do of the Nov. 3 election he lost to an incumbent Las Vegas-area Democrat.
Clark County District Court Judge Trevor Atkin denied the request from former professional wrestler and Republican Dan Rodimer to order a re-vote because of allegations of voter fraud and ballot-counting irregularities he claims contributed to his loss to U.S. Rep. Susie Lee.
Atkin ruled he did not have jurisdiction to order a re-vote of a U.S. congressional race and, even if he did, said that Nevada law did not require a re-vote. Rodimer lost by more than 12,000 votes, or about 3% of the 417,000 votes tallied in the congressional district, which lies entirely within Clark County and encompasses suburbs south of Las Vegas.

Rodimer’s attorney, Craig Mueller, argued that Clark County officials rushed to approve the election result without examining it enough - a move he called “worthy of the Politburo.”
