Las Vegas US Rep. Dina Titus (D) had been purposefully not closing the door over entering the 2018 Senate race to challenge Sen. Dean Heller (R), and also fellow Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Henderson) for the Democratic nomination. Now, however, Ms. Titus’ plans are clear. On Wednesday, the Congresswoman announced that she will seek re-election to her 1st District seat, thereby removing herself from any further discussion about a US Senate bid. The move means we will almost assuredly see a Heller-Rosen general election next year. This race will likely be considered a toss-up all the way through Election Day.
