Nevada Treasurer Kate Marshall has announced she will run for Congress in hopes of filling a seat left vacant by a Republican named to the U.S. Senate, according to local news reports.

Marshall, a Democrat now in her second term, will join at least five others in a race for the seat during a Sept. 13 special election, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

As an incumbent treasurer, Marshall won re-election by a 4.5% margin in November over Steve Martin, a Las Vegas certified public accountant.

Marshall worked previously in the U.S. Department of Justice’s antitrust division and was also a senior deputy attorney general in Nevada.
