GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Former U.S. Senate candidate Danny Tarkanian says internal polling shows he has name recognition to win a U.S. House seat in Nevada, but he isn’t sure he can raise the most money in the race.

Tarkanian has been mulling a House run since he was defeated in the 2010 Republican primary by tea party favorite Sharron Angle. He would face Democratic Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford and Republican state Senator Barbara Cegavske if he runs for Nevada’s newly created 4th Congressional District.

He hoped that a primary opponent would slow Horsford down and give him an edge in the general election.

But Cegavske has picked up endorsements from Congressman Mark Amodei and other state Republicans.

Tarkanian says endorsements don’t matter and he hopes to make a decision before Jan. 6.
