Judge Sides With GOP Assembly Hopeful In Residency Challenge

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Northern Nevada Republican Assembly candidate Jason Guinasso says he's relieved after a judge ruled in his favor in a residency dispute.

The Reno Gazette-Journal first reported Judge Patrick Flanagan's ruling Thursday that Guinasso is legally eligible to run for Assembly District 26.

Major construction at Guinasso's new home had forced him to live in his old home in Assembly District 25, and Lake Tahoe-area resident Frank Wright had challenged Guinasso's residency.

Guinasso said he felt vindicated that the judge agreed with his arguments and wants to get back to work campaigning. He's endorsed by high-ranking Republican elected officials as he seeks a seat held by retiring Republican Assemblyman Randy Kirner.

Guinasso faces fellow Republican Lisa Krasner in the primary.
