Steven Horsford represents Nevada’s Fourth Congressional District. Before running for Congress, he led the Culinary Training Academy, and was Nevada’s first African-American State Senate Majority Leader. In Congress, he has worked on behalf of veterans, senior citizens, and Nevadans to make sure they receive the benefits they deserve. Horsford flipped his district in 2018, helping Democrats take the majority in the House of Representatives.
In office, Horsford helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. Horsford represents a swing district, and faces a tough re-election fight in 2020.
