With former Republican congressional nominee Danny Tarkanian (R) pivoting from the US Senate race back into the 3rd Congressional District contest on candidate filing day, more movement has occurred. According to Daily Kos Elections reporter Jeff Singer, former state Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman has now exited the race, citing Tarkanian’s entry. Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) is holding a fundraiser for state Sen. Scott Hammond, who is expected to be a major contender in this congressional race. Both Clark County Republican chairman Dave McKeon and former television reporter Michelle Mortensen pledge to continue their campaigns. The seat is open because freshman Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Henderson) is running for Senate. Democrats appear to be coalescing around school board president Susie Lee.
