Evaluating the 2012 Democratic Congressional Field

AIR DATE: October 7, 2011

There are at least four confirmed candidates vying to be the next Democratic member of Nevada's congressional delegation. They include State Senators, Ruben Kihuen, John Oceguera and John Lee. Former Rep. Dina Titus has also jumped into the race and there's speculation that Nevada Senate Majority Leader, Steven Horsford will join the race soon.

But, as the Nevada courts decide on where the congressional districts will be candidates hoping to be elected still don't know what district they'll run in. We explore the strengths and weaknesses of the Democrats running for Congress and how some of the potential primary races might play out.
