DescriptionRepublican state Sen. Elizabeth Halseth resigned Friday from the Legislature, citing an "incredibly difficult private matter" and the need to focus on finding a better-paying job and her role as a mother of three children.

Halseth disclosed her decision in a letter to Gov. Brian Sandoval two days after members of a legislative committee proposed replacing her because she had been missing meetings and was hard to reach.

The letter thanked her constituents in Clark County District 9 for being understanding and compassionate toward her as an elected official and a newly single mother.

Her husband Daniel Halseth filed for divorce in November after 11 years of marriage, a few weeks after he was arrested in Las Vegas on a charge of open and gross lewdness. The status of the case could not be immediately determined.
