(Ben Botkin, Las Vegas Review-Journal) – Danny Tarkanian has raised nearly $350,000 in his first fundraising quarter in a bid for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District.
The Republican candidate is moving into the next quarter with about $335,000 cash on hand, according to figures from the campaign. Tarkanian announced for the 2016 race in July.
The spot is opening because Rep. Joe Heck, R-Nev., is leaving it to run for Democrat Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate seat.
“Amy and I are incredibly thankful for the tremendous investment our supporters have made in my candidacy,” Tarkanian said in a statement. “While my opponent continues to represent the big government, tax raising policies of the establishment in our party I stand ready to take off the gloves and fight for the core conservative principles that many in Carson City and Washington seem to have forgotten.”
