Queen of clubs settles election tie

ELY, Nevada (AP) -- A county commission race in this gambling state was decided in true Nevada fashion -- by the luck of the draw.

After finishing Tuesday's election tied with 1,847 votes each, Robert Swetich and Raymond Urrizaga agreed to draw cards to resolve the deadlocked White Pine County commission race.
