Jill Derby, chairwoman of the Nevada Democratic Party and former university regent, is considering another run for Congress.
According to The Associated Press, Derby, heartened by the massive turnout in Nevada's presidential caucus this month, is "in some conversations," as she put it, regarding a challenge to Republican Rep. Dean Heller in November. Derby, a Democrat, ran against Heller for the open seat in Nevada's 2nd District in 2006 when incumbent Jim Gibbons ran for governor. She lost by about 6 percentage points, running the closest race against a Republican since the district was created in 1980.
