LAS VEGAS (AP) - Assemblywoman Lucy Flores announced her candidacy Saturday in the high-stakes race for Nevada lieutenant governor and pledged to be a voice for the middle class.

The Las Vegas Democrat told a group of supporters at the College of Southern Nevada that she wants to "bring a vision and a voice to Nevada that hasn't been heard before."

She drew immediate support from several key Nevada Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Reps. Dina Titus and Steven Horsford, and Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

The lieutenant governor's race could become a spring board to the governor's mansion should Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval win re-election this year and decide to seek national office in 2016.

Sandoval has endorsed Republican state Sen. Mark Hutchison in that race, but he's facing a primary challenge from former state Sen. Sue Lowden.
