NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Republican incumbent Rep. Cresent Hardy and Democrat Ruben Kihuen are both releasing ads as their race for Nevada’s Democratic-leaning 4th Congressional District heats up.
The commercial Hardy released Wednesday shows him next to his pickup truck and in country settings. The ad says Hardy doesn’t care about his constituents’ political affiliation, but asks how he can help and gets to work.
It also echoes his campaign’s criticism of Kihuen, suggesting some people use their political office for career advancement.
Kihuen’s ad features 2012 footage of Hardy saying it’s a “blatant lie” that education in Nevada is underfunded, then counters that Nevada ranks 49th in education funding. Kihuen says he worked with Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval as a state senator to invest in education and make corporations pay their fair share.
