Republican Senator Dean Heller will face a challenge from Democrat Jacky Rosen in the 2018 general election.
In an email to reporters, Nevada's 3rd District Congresswoman says she is seeking the Democratic nomination for Senator in next year's election. She went on to say that an official announcement would come soon.
Considered a political outsider, Rosen worked as a computer programmer, software designer and president of a synagogue in Henderson until seeking office last year. She only narrowly defeated her opponent, perennial Republican candidate Danny Tarkanian.
