LAS VEGAS (AP) - Assemblywoman Marilyn Dondero Loop is setting her sights on the Nevada State Senate.
The three-term Democrat from Las Vegas announced Monday she will run for the District 8 Senate seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Barbara Cegavske, who is termed out.
The seat is one of handful in play that will determine whether Democrats retain a slim majority in the upper chamber.
Republican businesswoman Patricia Farley also plans to file for the seat and has been endorsed by the GOP caucus.
