LAS VEGAS (AP) — Campaign finance reports show that Nevada Republican Dan Rodimer outraised incumbent Democratic congresswoman Susie Lee in recent months.

Rodimer is a former professional wrestler who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump and appeared at recent rallies for the president and Vice President Mike Pence.

He had lagged behind Lee's fundraising earlier this year but new reports show he powered past her from July through September, bringing in about $400,000 more than Lee.

Their contest is expected to be the most closely watched and competitive of Nevada's four House races this year.
