More LDS politicians win primaries, face challengers

At least four more Mormons have cleared primaries for statewide or U.S. congressional offices while an Idaho congressional candidate leads in polls and Harry Reid's son Rory looks to November with a GOP opponent in the Nevada gubernatorial race.

David Harmer, a Republican candidate running in California's 11th Congressional District, came out on top in the three-way GOP primary June 8. He will run against two-term incumbent Democrat Jerry McNerney.

According to the Tracy Press: "This is Harmer's third tilt at a congressional seat, and his second campaign in two years. He first ran in 1996 in Utah to represent that state in the House of Representatives, and he also mounted an unsuccessful bid in 2009 in California's 10th District."
