NEVADA: “Nevada state Treasurer Kate Marshall (D) announced Wednesday she is running in the 2nd district special election,” Roll Call writes.
NEW YORK: “While evidence is emerging that New York’s looming special election is more competitive than many expected, GOP operatives have long worried about the impact of wealthy third-party candidate Jack Davis. It is only now, however, that those fears are on display,” Roll Call reports. “The Tea Party Express, the National Republican Congressional Committee and the state GOP have joined the fight to protect the western New York seat previously held by former Rep. Chris Lee (R). And with the May 24 election less than three weeks away, the powerful conservative group American Crossroads is actively considering whether to pour resources into the race as well.”
