Jimmy Carter’s son wins Nevada Senate primary

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Jack Carter, the son of former U.S.
President Jimmy Carter, won Tuesday's Democratic primary for
the U.S. Senate and will face Republican incumbent John Ensign.

Making his first try for elective office, Carter won the
primary race with 76.5 percent of the vote, according to an
unofficial tally by the Nevada Secretary of State's office.

Carter has criticized the Bush administration over its Iraq
policy and issues including domestic spying and energy.

One of the former president's four children, Carter was
active in his father's successful 1976 presidential race but
has devoted his professional life to business. He lived in
Bermuda as an investor before moving to Nevada in 2002.
