Congressman Steven Horsford (D-NV) responds to a reporter’s question following a tour of the Southern Nevada Counter-Terrorism Center, also known as the Fusion Center, at Metro Police Headquarters Thursday, May 2, 2013. Officials at the center are concerned that budget cuts that might negatively affect its operations.

Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev., said he will run for re-election in Nevada’s 4th Congressional District in a press release.

Although Horsford was widely expected to run for re-election, his formal announcement comes after a round of media appearances earlier this week in which Horsford assured Nevadans that he is ready to get back to work following a preventative six-way heart bypass surgery he underwent early in July.

The congressman said he plans to make his formal announcement Friday at his campaign office at 4040 N. Martin Luther King Blvd. in North Las Vegas, where he plans to join family, community members, and local elected leaders in making the announcement.

The first-term congressman represents most of North Las Vegas in a large district that stretches from Clark County to rural cities like Ely and Yerington.

Horsford is the former Nevada Senate majority leader who represented a North Las Vegas district in the state Senate from 2004-2012.
