Washington Examiner: April Becker wins Nevada GOP primary and now aims for Democratic Rep. Susie Lee

April Becker has won the Republican primary in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, emerging from a crowded field for a chance to flip the Democratic-held seat.

Becker, a lawyer and small business owner, was the top fundraiser in the field and received high-profile endorsementsfrom the Nevada Republican Party, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley, and Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

Becker listed election integrity, solving the homelessness crisis, securing the southern border, and creating jobs as some of her top priorities.

The race is considered a “toss-up” by the Cook Political Report, and the GOP has targeted it as a potential pickup opportunity in its quest to take back the majority in the House.

After redistricting, the district includes the western half of the Las Vegas metropolitan area as well as the southern tip of the state. Rep. Susie Lee, a Democrat, has represented the district since 2019, and the last Republican elected there retired in 2017.
