Evaluating the 2012 Democratic Congressional Field

There are at least four confirmed candidates vying to be the next Democratic member of Nevada's congressional delegation. They include State Senators, Ruben Kihuen, John Oceguera and John Lee. Former Rep. Dina Titus has also jumped into the race and there's speculation that Nevada Senate Majority Leader, Steven Horsford will join the race soon.
