Sam Peters wins Republican primary in Nevada’s 4th congressional district – Ballotpedia News
Sam Peters defeated Annie Black and Chance Bonaventura in the June 14 Republican primary for Nevada’s 4th congressional district. Peters will face incumbent Rep. Steven Horsford (D) in the general election. The Democratic primary was canceled since Horsford was the only candidate standing in the race.
Inside the elections and Sabato’s Crystal Ball called the general election Lean Democratic, and The Cook Political Report viewed the race as a draw. According FiveThirtyEightNevada’s 4th had a lean D+5 supporter after the 2020 redistricting round, while the old district had a lean R+1. A partisan lean indicates the difference between how a state or district votes and how the country votes globally.
Black and Peters led the Republican primary field in fundraising, media coverage and endorsements, including an endorsement for Nevada’s two Republican Party candidates.
Peters is a US Air Force veteran and owned a risk management company. In 2020, Peters ran in the Republican primary for US House in Nevada’s 4th and was defeated 35%-28% by Jim Marchant (R). A Peters campaign ad said Peters is “running for Congress to end President Trump’s wall, stop illegal immigration, stand up for our rights, and stand up to socialists.” Two members of the U.S. House Freedom Caucus, Reps. Andy Biggs (R-Arizona) and Paul Gosar (R-Arizona), and former Nevada Gov. Robert List (R) endorsed Peters.
Black is a real estate agent and business owner. She served on the Mesquite City Council from 2018 to 2020 and was elected to the Nevada State Assembly in 2020 to represent Assembly District 19. Black’s campaign website said, ” Biden-Horsford’s economic policies are destroying our state and bankrupting Nevadans. I am running for Congress to revive our economy. Two U.S. House members, Rep. Carol Miller (RW.Va.) and House Republican Conference Speaker Elise Stefanik (RN.Y.), have endorsed Black and the Republican National Committee of Congress has selected Black as an On the Radar contestant.
