Two former Nevada congressmen set for rematch

Source: The Hill

Former Nevada Reps. Steven Horsford (D) and Cresent Hardy (R) won their respective primaries on Tuesday, setting up a rematch in a highly competitive House seat.

Horsford and Hardy both decided to mount comeback campaigns after freshman Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D) announced he wouldn’t seek reelection amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

The former lawmakers will be vying to represent Nevada’s 4th District, which includes northern Las Vegas and has become more favorable for Democrats since its inception in 2012.

Hillary Clinton carried the district by 5 points in 2016, while Kihuen won by a similar margin.

In the Democratic primary, Horsford defeated six other candidates for the nomination after entering the race in late January.

Horsford gained a significant endorsement from the Culinary Union, which has powerful sway in Nevada political circles. He served as a state senator from 2004 to 2012 and was the first African-American Senate majority leader in Nevada.
