Democratic districts in U.S. House targeted by GOP: Nevada 4th

Nevada gained a 4th U.S. House seat after the 2010 census, and elections in this district have been a seesaw affair so far.  In 2012, Democrat Steven Horsford beat Republican Danny Tarkanian -- who must have a 'loser' tag by now -- by 8 percentage points.  Horsford lost his re-election bid to Republican Cresent Hardy by 2.7 points.  Hardy then lost his re-election bid to Democrat Ruben Kihuen by 4 percentage points.  With this kind of pattern, the NRCC might have stumbled onto a seat where they have a chance.

Clinton won 49.5% of the presidential vote compared to 44.6% for Trump.
