Nevada Democrat Goes District Shopping, Crushing Democrats’ Hopes

Democrats are frustrated and can’t seem to catch a break in their quest to take back the House. Not only did a top recruit leave them in the lurch in a competitive New York congressional district, but they’re also experiencing crowded primaries in two must-win seats in Illinois and Florida. The news got worse today in Nevada.

Democrats had hoped Las Vegas activist Susie Lee would mount a challenge to their perennial target Joe Heck in Nevada’s 3rd congressional district, but she has chosen to join the Democratic primary in Nevada’s 4th district instead.

Lee’s decision to go district shopping and run in the 4th district instead of the 3rd leaves a top swing seat without a Democratic challenger and causes a crowded Democratic primary for yet another high priority seat for Nancy Pelosi.
