Former Rep. Steven HorsfordSteven Alexander HorsfordFormer Dem congressman jumps into race for Kihuen seat Former Nevada lawmaker won't seek comeback Eight Dem targets for 2016 MORE (D-Nev.) won't seek a comeback after being upset last fall, according to Ralston Reports.

Horsford had been weighing a comeback bid after his surprise loss to freshman Rep. Crescent Hardy (R-Nev.) in a Democratic-leaning suburban Las Vegas district in November. He was viewed as a rising Democratic star before the upset.

Hardy is a top 2016 Democratic target, and Horsford's decision not to run leaves Democrats without an obvious candidate, making recruitment a top priority in the district.
