ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Human's race ended in defeat.

A candidate who legally changed his name to human — with a lowercase "H'' — lost his bid to run for office in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

The former David Montenegro lost a primary contest to incumbent Democratic state Rep. Rose Marie Rogers by a count of 181-30.

Montenegro changed his name in 2012. He made headlines this year when the state's highest court ruled he could have a vanity license plate that reads COPSLIE. He had sued after the Division of Motor Vehicles said he couldn't have the plate because it denigrated police officers.

Rogers was first elected in 2012 and represents Rochester, a city of about 30,000 residents.
