RENO, Nev. (AP) — Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval is expected to easily pace the field in two crowded primary contests in Nevada where the most attention is on the GOP primary for lieutenant governor.

With no serious Democratic challenger looming in November, Sandoval's biggest campaign move was backing state Sen. Mark Hutchison over ex-U.S. Senate hopeful Sue Lowden for the state's No. 2 job.

Tuesday's winner is expected to meet Democrat Lucy Flores, a two-term assemblywoman from Las Vegas.

A pair of conservatives are battling it out in the most compelling congressional primary in the 4th District, where tea party organizer Niger Innis is running against Assemblyman Cresent Hardy. The winner likely will face Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford .

Nevada voters also are deciding primary races for state lawmakers, local officials and district judges.
