Catherine Cortez Masto has spent her entire career fighting to protect Nevada families, and will continue to fight for Nevada in the US Senate! Cortez Masto served two terms as Nevada’s Attorney General and became well known for her integrity and leadership on behalf of Nevada families, women, and seniors.
As the chief law enforcement officer of Nevada, Cortez Masto worked closely with law enforcement, treatment providers, and community advocates. Staying true to her commitment to protecting seniors, Cortez Masto also created a senior protection unit in the Attorney General’s office to ensure that her investigators and prosecutors had the necessary tools to pursue those who abuse, neglect, or exploit seniors in our communities.
A lifelong advocate for women and children, Cortez Masto worked to strengthen laws preventing sex trafficking and violence against women. She helped pass a bill that established the crime of sex trafficking of children and adults, allowed victims to receive assistance, and gave them the right to sue their traffickers.
Catherine has the experience and unique voice we need in the US Senate.
