GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!
Crescent Hardy announces campaign for 4th Congressional District

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Assemblyman Cresent Hardy is launching his bid for Congress and hopes to unseat incumbent Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford in November.

The conservative Republican on Tuesday highlighted his Nevada roots and says he’s the best person to represent the sprawling 4th Congressional District that spans nearly half the state. The district stretches from North Las Vegas and encompasses all or parts of six other counties.

Hardy spent decades in the construction industry. He lives in Mesquite and was elected to the NevadaAssembly in 2010.

He will likely face Niger Innis, a tea party member and civil rights advocate, in the Republican primary in June.
