Updated 3:30 p.m. | The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is spending precious eleventh-hour funds on two more incumbents, Reps. Steven Horsford of Nevada and Lois Capps of California, in the final days of the midterms.  

The committee aide confirmed the DCCC will spend $360,000 in the Las Vegas television market to help Horsford fend off a late blitz from Crossroads GPS, a GOP outside group. He represents Nevada’s 4th District. The committee will also spend $99,000 on radio the Santa Barbara-based California 24th District on behalf of Capps.
