Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has snapped up another endorsement from a Nevada lawmaker.

Democratic Assemblyman Howard Watts, who represents a Las Vegas district, said in a statement Friday that he wants a president who will help working families, keep public lands publicly held and hold big corporations accountable.

Warren says she's honored to have Watts' support and called him a "fierce advocate" for Nevadans.

The Massachusetts senator has also been endorsed by Democratic Assemblywoman Heidi Swank, along with State Controller Catherine Byrne.
