Nevada has some of the hottest races in the country this election.

In the Senate, incumbent Dean Heller, who is the only Republican senator up for reelection in a state Hillary Clinton won in 2016,  is working to hold off a challenge from Rep. Jacky Rosen with it looking to be a tight race. Some congressional seats are also in play with three different districts holding elections this November. In District 1, incumbent Dina Titus is facing businesswoman Joyce Bentley. Educator, Susie Lee is battling Danny Tarkanian for the District 3 seat up for grabs. Also, Steven Horsford faces off against Cresent Hardy, both vying for the District 4 seat after Ruben Kihuen announced his retirement.
