CARSON CITY, Nev.—One of the dozen Republican U.S. Senate hopefuls in Nevada is withdrawing from the race a week before the primary election.

Gary Bernstein on Tuesday threw his support to John Chachas, a former Wall Street investment banker who also is running for the seat currently held by Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Bernstein was a long-shot in the race. Though he has withdrawn, his name still appears on the ballot.

Early voting began May 22 in advance of the June 8 primary.

Former state Sen. Sue Lowden, former Assemblywoman Sharron Angle, and Las Vegas businessman Danny Tarkanian are the Republican front runners.
