RENO, Nev. (AP) — Democratic Congresswoman Dina Titus says she's considering running for the Senate seat soon to be vacated by retiring Sen. Harry Reid, but isn't in a hurry to make a decision.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported Thursday (http://on.rgj.com/1FALepy) on the prospect of Titus entering a race that so far includes Democratic former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto and Republican Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers.

Titus told columnist Ray Hagar that one of her first considerations is her seniority in the House, and said she'd be starting all over if she heads to the Senate. She noted she's representing a solidly Democratic district that includes the Las Vegas Strip.

Titus also commented on speculation that Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval might enter the race, calling him an ideal candidate and good fundraiser.
