Democrat Erin Bilbray has defeated a little-known opponent, and will now challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Joe Heck in November.

Bilbray bested Zachary "Mr. Z" Campbell in Tuesday's primary election for the 3rd District, which includes Henderson and parts of Las Vegas.

She's the daughter of a well-known former Nevada congressman and the founder of an organization that grooms women to run for office.

Her race against second-term congressman Heck promises to be one of the most-watched in the country. Democrats and Republicans hold a nearly equal share of the district, which also includes a sizeable bloc of registered nonpartisans.

Heck, who's a doctor and member of the Army Reserves, had raised almost four times as much cash as Bilbray ahead of the primary.
