LAS VEGAS (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford has defeated two Democratic challengers in a primary election victory for the 4th Congressional District. 

The state's first black U.S. representative topped two little-known Democrats in the sprawling district that includes urban North Las Vegas, as well as vast stretches of rural Nevada.

The well-funded Democratic incumbent will face establishment-backed Cresent Hardy in November. Hardy defeated tea party strategist Niger Innis and two other candidates. 

Hardy is a two-term state assemblyman from Mesquite and a fifth-generation Nevadan.
