Nevada House Members Hold Fundraising Edge Over Challengers

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada's three Democrats and one Republican seeking re-election to the U.S. House this year are building up fundraising cushions they'll use to try to defeat challengers in the months ahead.

The latest campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission show that the state's four incumbent members of Congress started April with more than twice the campaign cash of their best-funded challengers.

Despite the hefty campaign donations lawmakers brought in from January through March, some incumbents who represent swing districts may still face strong challenges in November.
