Henderson, Nev. – Today, Rosen for Nevada announced its fundraising total for the first quarter of 2016 and the campaign’s first quarter since Democratic candidate Jacky Rosen entered the race for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District in late January. The campaign raised more than $204,000 in just two months and ended the quarter with more than $166,000 cash on hand. A recently released general election poll showed Rosen with a slight lead in the race for this open seat, and just yesterday Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball shifted the district from “Leans Republican” to “Toss-up.”
“Since Jacky entered the race, our campaign has been inspired by the strong support we’ve seen in Southern Nevada for electing a leader who will put aside the partisan bickering and find real solutions for real people in Congress,” said David Furr, Campaign Manager for Rosen for Nevada. “While our extreme Republican opponents hurl insults at each other, Jacky is focused on the needs of this community: creating good jobs and
fighting for paycheck fairness, making college more affordable, and protecting Social Security and Medicare for our seniors. Jacky has seen firsthand the real struggles of families in Southern Nevada, and she has what it takes to win this seat and ensure this community gets the representation it deserves in Congress.”
Jacky has worked as a computer programmer, software developer, and designer for some of the biggest companies in Nevada, including Summa Corporation, Citibank, and Southwest Gas Company. She currently serves as President of Congregation Ner Tamid in Henderson, the largest Reform synagogue in Southern Nevada.
Democrats have a growing voter registration advantage in Nevada’s competitive open 3rd Congressional District, which President Obama won
in 2008 and 2012. The district covers Southern Nevada, including portions of Las Vegas and Henderson.
