NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — It's anyone's game in the Democratic-leaning Nevada's 4th Congressional District, which Democrats hope to reclaim from freshman Republican Rep. Cresent Hardy in November.
The race between three polished, well-funded Democratic candidates is shaping up to be the most competitive in the June 14 primary election, and it shows in the big names that have reached down to intervene: Bernie Sanders, Bill Clinton and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.
The front-runners are Lucy Flores, a former state assemblywoman, state Sen. Ruben Kihuen and education advocate Susie Lee.
Five other Democrats round out the field but have reported far less money than Flores, Lee and Kihuen. They are Dan Rolle, Rodney Smith, Mike Schaefer, Brandon Casutt and Morse Arberry.
