LAS VEGAS (AP, KRNV & — The three leading Republicans in Nevada's 4th Congressional District primary have been targeting each other for months, but the real battle begins after Tuesday's primary.  The 4th Congressional District is the new district that stretches from the northern parts of Clark County to Storey County.

The winner will face Democratic Nevada Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford in a district that heavily favors Democrats.

Despite the uneven odds, Republicans Barbara Cegavske, Dan Schwartz and Danny Tarkanian all promise they can beat Horsford — if they survive the primary.

The contest is the marque race of Tuesday's primary, when Republican Sen. Dean Heller and Democratic Senate hopeful Shelley Berkley are expected to easily prevail against a slate of unknowns.

In Nevada's 3rd Congressional District, Republican Rep. Joe Heck and Democratic challenger John Oceguera have also enjoyed quiet primaries. Their general election showdown should be the state's most competitive House race in November.
