LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada state Sen. Mark Hutchison has won the Republican primary for lieutenant governor in a divisive contest with ex-state lawmaker and one-time U.S. Senate hopeful Sue Lowden.

Hutchison advances to the November election against Democrat Lucy Flores, a state assemblywoman from Las Vegas who cruised to victory in her primary Tuesday night.

Hutchison, a first-term senator and wealthy lawyer from Las Vegas, had the backing of Gov. Brian Sandoval.

Lowden lost the 2010 GOP primary for the U.S. Senate to tea party conservative Sharron Angle, who went on to lose to Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Hutchison's campaign ads attacked Lowden for making contributions to Reid's re-election campaigns in the 1980s.
