LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani is hosting a fundraiser for U.S. House candidate John Oceguera.
Oceguera is the Democratic Nevada Assembly speaker challenging Republican Congressman Joe Heck this November.
Giunchigliani is a well-known Democrat in Las Vegas who ran for mayor and lost last year.
She is holding the fundraiser at her home Saturday afternoon.
Voters sent Heck to Washington in 2010, after he defeated former Democratic Congresswoman Dina Titus.
Oceguera hopes his campaign will keep Heck from winning a second term.
The House district that includes suburban Henderson is home to a mix of Republicans, independent voters and Democrats and could swing either way.
