The 1st Congressional District of Nevada will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Nevada's 1st is a Democratic-leaning district, so Incumbent Dina Titus (D) will have a definite advantage in the November general election against Republican challenger Annette Teijeiro. Titus has only been in office since 2013, but Shelley Berkley (D), who held the seat before her, took office in 1999.[1][2] Titus won election to the U.S. House in 2012 with a 32.1 percent margin of victory over Republican candidate Chris Edwards. The Cook Political Report also rates Titus' seat as "Solid Democratic," meaning that it is not expected to be competitive.[3] Although Teijeiro does have a substantial amount of campaign funds, Titus still has the monetary advantage. As of the April Quarterly Federal Election Commission (FEC) reports, Titus had $238,458.15 in cash on hand, more than twice Teijeiro's $117,719.25.

Both Titus and Teijeiro faced challengers in the primary election on June 10, 2014, but while Titus defeated Herbert Peters 86 to 14 percent, Teijeiro defeated Jose Padilla by only 9.4 percent.
