Amodei ran for reelection and faced a primary challenge from Sharron Angle.

The 4th congressional district was created as a result of the 2010 United States Census. Located in the central portion of the state, it includes most of northern Clark County, parts of Lyon County, and all of Esmeralda County, Lincoln County, Mineral County, Nye County and White Pine County. More than four-fifths of the district's population lives in Clark County.
The incumbent is Democrat Ruben Kihuen, who has represented the district since January 2017. He was elected by defeating incumbent Republican U.S. Representative Cresent Hardy with 49% of the vote in 2016. In December 2017, Kihuen announced that he would not seek reelection in 2018 following allegations of sexual harassment.
After incumbent Representative Kihuen announced he would not seek reelection in 2018, the only candidate filed to run against him in the primaries was Amy Vilela.
Former U.S. Representative from this district Steven Horsford, who was defeated in the 2014 election, as well as Nevada Legislator Pat Spearman, later announced their plans to run for the Democratic nomination for the seat several months later, due to Kihuen's retirement announcement.
