Two Nevada House seats listed in Top 50 competitive in country

Rep. Joe Heck's seat and a new House district in Nevada are among the most competitive in the country, the National Journal reports.

Heck's CD3 battle with Speaker John Oceguera has dropped from 35th to 40th in the listing: "The overlapping turnout machines of Obama, Harry Reid and Shelley Berkley will help Democrat John Oceguera, but he's been an unsteady candidate."

And the Danny Tarkanian-Steven Horsford battle in CD4 has moved up from 45th to 41st: "We haven't seen a poll with Republican Danny Tarkanian behind, and Republicans have a good set of ethical hits against Steven Horsford on TV in Las Vegas right now. The NRCC is pouring more money into the Democratic-leaning district to help Tarkanian make the tough breakthrough from the mid-40s to victory."
