The leaders in two tight local races solidified their leads on Thursday, according to Clark County election results.In the race for the 17th Legislative District, Position 1, Republican Vicki Kraft widened her lead over independent Democrat Sam Kim by 1,500 votes out of 55,968 ballots counted. Kim said on Thursday he was disappointed he won’t be serving in the statehouse, but called running for the position a tremendous experience.“It was a good campaign. We stayed very positive, very hopeful for the future,” Kim said.Republican John Blom, vying for an open Clark County council seat, also saw a spike in the number of people who voted for him and now leads Democrat Tanisha Harris by 710 votes out of 40,906 counted.Meanwhile, the race for the District 4 position on the Clark County council is over.Roman Battan conceded the race to Eileen Quiring on Thursday in a Facebook post that expressed gratitude to his supporters and encouraged them to stay involved.“Moving forward I hope that you continue to stay engaged,” the post reads. “Local government plays a big role in our daily lives and we should expect and demand that our elected officials represent everyone in our community; not just those on the winning side of a conservative or liberal ideological coin.”The most recent count of ballots from Clark County elections shows Quiring, a Republican, expanding her lead to 26,292 votes over Democrat Battan’s 16,609 votes. On election night, Battan refused to concede the race until more ballots were counted.
