Entrepreneur Lisa Song Sutton, who was Miss Nevada USA in 2014, announced that she will seek the Republican nomination to eventually challenge Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Las Vegas). Though the district leans Democratic, the campaign could become competitive.
Mr. Horsford was first elected in 2012 when the seat was added to the Nevada delegation as a result of the 2010 apportionment. But, he lost re-election after one term to Republican Cresent Hardy, who then lost his own re-election two years later. When Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-Las Vegas) ran into a sex scandal and didn’t seek his first re-election, Mr. Horsford returned, this time defeating Mr. Hardy. The short electoral history indicates that the 4th District electorate has yet to re-elect its incumbent. Therefore, a Horsford-Sutton match could become a race to watch.
