As Nevada State Senate Majority Leader, Steven Horsford authored and passed the Clean Energy Jobs Initiative, positioning Nevada as a national leader in renewable energy. He spent one term in Congress before being ousted by a far right racist who thinks that coal is clean. It's time for Horsford to return to Congress.
Steven is looking to return to Congress — and help flip the House! — after serving one term on behalf of Nevada’s 4th District in 2012. Before that, as Nevada State Senate Majority Leader, he authored and passed the Clean Energy Jobs Initiative, positioning Nevada as a national leader in renewable energy.
In 2014, Horsford lost his seat to far-right Cresent Hardy. If Hardy’s name is familiar, he sided with Cliven Bundy’s family militia in their shootout with federal agents. Hardy lost to Ruben Kihuen, who retired after one term, and now 2018 will be a Horsford-Hardy rematch.
Hardy is an old-school climate denier: the kind who thinks coal is clean, the Keystone XL pipeline creates jobs, and that President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan deserved to be dismantled by Congress. And he’s an out-and-out racist to boot.
Nevada’s 4th Congressional District is the kind of purple seat Dems need to hold to flip the House. This critical swing district includes North Las Vegas, the high, lonely space of Great Basin National Park, and the town of Ely. Steven can win this race and speak out for solar energy in Congress — but first he needs your help.
