“Nevadans sent me back to the Senate to fight for them, and I’ll keep delivering for working families all across the state,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “Right now that means bringing down high prices while continuing to create good-paying jobs in every Nevada community. I’m proud to come from a hardworking Nevada family, and I will always stand up for my home state.”
