Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) won her primary Tuesday night. She will go on to face far-right Adam Laxalt, a former Nevada attorney general. JAC has been a strong supporter of Cortez Masto since her first run for the Senate in 2016.
During her freshman term, Cortez Masto has been one of the Senate’s most vocal supporters of women’s reproductive health. She vowed to protect women’s access to a full range of health care services no matter what.
Cortez Masto has also been a strong advocate for meaningful immigration reform that balances critical border security measures with a path to citizenship for Dreamers. She can be counted to protect our natural resources as a supporter of clean energy and technology.
She is getting ready for one of the toughest fights of her political career. Laxalt, who was a Nevada co-chair of Trump's 2020 campaign, has been an outspoken supporter of Trump's election lie. He remains election denier, and will continue to promote that falsehood to rev up the strong Trump base in the state.
As well as having strong name recognition from his time as Attorney General, Laxalt is also the grandson of former Nevada Senator Paul Laxalt.
Nevada has voted blue at the top of the ticket since 2004, trending more purple overall. President Joe Biden won the state in 2020 by just over two points. However, according to The Cook Political Report, the state's "in play" upon a closer look. Republicans often do better here in favorable midterm years, and the state has a significant white non-college population.
Laxalt will have the entire force of the MAGA movement behind him, not only because he led the Big Lie conspiracy theories for Trump in Nevada, but because he would vote for a national abortion ban if Republicans flip the Senate.
We need to make sure to send Cortez Masto back to the Senate. She can be the critical vote needed to break the filibuster and make Roe a federal law. DONATE HERE.
