NV-04: Steven Horsford (D)
Born and raised in Nevada, Steven Horsford has been fighting for working families for his entire career. He led the state’s largest career training program helping thousands of workers find good jobs and made history as Nevada’s first African-American Senate Majority Leader. There, he worked across party lines to pass landmark legislation to create clean energy jobs and solve the worst budget crisis in state history. In 2012, Horsford ran and won this congressional seat and fought for legislation that protected seniors, veterans, and women. Steven is now a small business owner.
Steven made history as Nevada’s first African American State Senate Majority Leader and he delivered. Steven took on big polluters to pass the “Clean Energy Jobs Initiative” and make Nevada a leader in renewable energy. When Nevada’s economy was devastated during the recession, Steven worked across party lines to solve the worst budget crisis in state history.
While representing Nevadans in our nation’s capital, Steven worked to ensure veterans, seniors citizens, and all Nevadans received the benefits they deserved, authored and passed the Nevada Lands Bill to create jobs across the state, and fought to protect a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions.
