New House majority leader coming to Vegas for Heck

House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy, who succeeded the defeated and resigned Eric Cantor, will be in Las Vegas next week to help Rep. Joe Heck raise money.

Among those on the host committee are four gaming company luminaries: Caesars' Gary Loveman, Las Vegas Sands' Mike Leven and Station Casinos' Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta. Many well-known business doyens also are on the list.

Heck is considered a solid favorite against Democrat Erin Bilbray.
