Philanthropist Susie Lee announced she will run for the congressional seat currently held by freshman Republican Cresent Hardy. Congressional District Four covers a vast amount of land in rural central Nevada, as well as parts of North Las Vegas.
Lee has been the board chair for Communities in Schools of Nevada for several years now, a nonprofit group that helps at-risk children and aims to increase graduation rates. One of her top priorities, she said, will be families and education.
This is Lee’s first run for office, and she will compete in the democratic primary against former assemblywoman Lucy Flores and current state senator Ruben Kihuen.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
