LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Republican congressional candidate Niger Innis says he regrets not voting more often in the past 14 years.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/1fY5Eez ) reports Innis voted only four times since 2000 while registered to vote and living in New York and Nevada.

Innis tells the newspaper that during that time he was focused grassroots organizing.

He says he's learned over the years that to bring about change you have to actively engage in the political process.

Innis is running for Nevada's 4th Congressional District seat currently held by Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford. He faces a June GOP primary against state Assemblyman Cresent Hardy.
