Former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto is a solid progressive, running against right-wing Rep. Joe Heck to replace retiring Democratic Leader Harry Reid. She would be the first Latina in the Senate. This is the one Democratic seat that is a toss-up and could be picked off by Republicans if we don’t give Cortez Masto all the firepower we can.
- On the Issues: Catherine Cortez Masto is committed to improving jobs and wages for low-wage workers, boosting education funding, fighting climate change, overturning Citizens United and fixing our broken campaign finance system. Her top priorities include immigration reform, and criminal justice reform. She supports LGBT equality, and is strongly pro-choice.
- Election update (9/27): Nevada polling historically underestimates by a couple of percentage points the Democratic support that shows up on election day, and current polling averages show Cortez Masto down by 4%. Clinton is polling slightly behind Trump in NV, and is spending significant resources, including a ground game that will help Cortez Masto. Over $13M in independent expenditures and dark money has already been spent against Cortez Masto, with more on the way.
