LAS VEGAS (AP) — Losing congressional hopeful Niger Innis says he wants an investigation into why a virtually unknown candidate made such a strong showing in the Nevada Republican primary.

Innis issued a statement Thursday saying he would call on Secretary of State Ross Miller to audit the 4th District results, in which Assemblyman Cresent Hardy earned 43 percent of the vote, Innis took 33 percent and Mike Monroe earned 22 percent. About 24,000 votes were cast.

Innis asked whether a computer error might be behind Monroe's large share of the vote, even though Monroe did virtually no campaigning.

He acknowledged that Hardy won the nomination and "we need to move forward."

Secretary of State spokeswoman Catherine Lu said Miller's office had not received a formal request for an investigation as of Friday morning.
