LAS VEGAS (AP) — An obscure candidate for governor who won less than 5 percent of the Democratic vote last week is looking into a possible recount.

Allen Rheinhart says he and four other candidates are exploring the option, and asks whether fraud occurred in the primary won by Robert Goodman.

Scott Gilles of the Nevada Secretary of State's office tells the Las Vegas Sun (http://bit.ly/1q8ysVH ) he received a request from Rheinhart and will provide him information about recounts. Each county must canvass the final vote by Wednesday, and candidates must submit their request for a challenge by June 23.

Rheinhart received 4.9 percent of the vote, well behind Goodman's 24.7 percent. Nearly 30 percent of voters chose "none of these candidates."

Gov. Brian Sandoval is widely expected to win against Goodman in November.
