Take Action: Nevada

Holds: Senate (Cortez Masto), NV-03 (Lee), NV-04 (Horsford)

Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto became the first Latina elected to the Senate when she won her seat by 2.4 points in 2016. The Center for Effective Lawmaking has rated Cortez Masto as the third most effective lawmaker in the US Senate. Still, her first term incumbency has led the Republicans to pump significant funding into trying to flip this seat. However, Cortez Masto has managed to out-raise her Republican challengers. Cook rates her Senate race as a TOSSUP.

In US House races, two incumbent Democrats are considered at risk. Susie Lee won the open seat in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District in 2018 by 9 points, but her margin slipped to 3 points in 2020. NV-03 is viewed as the state’s most competitive House district.

Steven Horsford won 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.”
