In NV-01, incumbent U.S. Rep. Dina Titus in November will face a Republican who earned only 30% of the vote in a multi-candidate primary. Titus has outraised Mark Robertson, but the district is rated a tossup. Redistricting shifted Democrats out of NV-01, a historically safe district for Dems. The map lands a tough blow to Titus’ re-election chances and barely gives much to boost Dems in NV-03 and NV-04. Titus is a member of the Pro-Choice Caucus, and voted to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act. Robertson is a Mormon and businessman who supports axing the federal Department of Education and says, “abortion is an affront to the Creator.” The district is a tossup, but Democrats hope Robertson’s stances are outof step with Nevadans who vote.
NV-03 Rep. Susie Lee won the open seat in 2018 by 9 points, but her margin slipped to 3 points in 2020. Lee voted for the 2022 Assault Weapons Ban and Women’s Health Protection Act. Her Republican opponent, April Becker, is a Las Vegas lawyer who opposes gun reform and is endorsed by the National Right to Live. NV-03 is viewed as the state’s most competitive House district.
Democrat Steven Horsford won his seat an open seat in NV-04 in 2018 by 8.2 points. In 2020 he beat his Republican challenger by under 5 points. The Republicans have listed both Horsford’s and Lee’s seats as “offensive pick-up opportunities for the 2022 cycle.” Horsford is facing Republican Sam Peters, a political newbie, insurance company owner, and proud card-carrying member of the NRA. He pledged he will introduce legislation that would outlaw abortion even in cases of rape and permit abortion doctors to be jailed.
