Rep. Dina Tit­us (D-01) an­nounced Tues­day that she would run for reelec­tion, opt­ing not to seek re­tir­ing Sen­ate Minor­ity Lead­er Harry Re­id’s (D) seat and clear­ing the way for former state At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Cath­er­ine Cortez Masto (D).

Tit­us: “After ser­i­ous re­flec­tion, I have come to my de­cision. There are many reas­ons why I chose this path, but none more im­port­ant than what is best for our great state. It has been an in­cred­ible hon­or to serve and rep­res­ent the people of Nevada. I’m proud of what we’ve ac­com­plished to­geth­er, but I know that there is still much work to be done.” (Face­book)

Re­id, fol­low­ing Tit­us’s an­nounce­ment: “Dina Tit­us has done a re­mark­able job rep­res­ent­ing Nevada in the House of Rep­res­ent­at­ives and I know she will con­tin­ue to do so for a long time. Rep­res­ent­ing the first dis­trict, Dina will be able to gain cru­cial seni­or­ity on com­mit­tees and en­sure our small state has a voice on is­sues af­fect­ing us. She will con­tin­ue the work she has done for dec­ades: fiercely fight­ing for Nevada.” (re­lease)
