NV Dems Bolster Communications Operation to Hold Ethically-Challenged Congressman Heck Accountable

Las Vegas, NV – The Nevada State Democratic Party announced today the expansion of its communications and rapid response operation to hold ethically-challenged Congressman Heck accountable.  The Party has hired Sarah Zukowski as Press Secretary, joining Stewart Boss and Zach Hudson on the communications team.

Zukowski most recently served as Press Secretary for Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal.  In 2014, she served as Press Secretary for the Wendy Davis campaign for Governor, helping manage the campaign’s rapid response operation.  In 2013, she worked on the special election for New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s campaign as Deputy Press Secretary.  In 2012, Zukowski worked in the communications operation for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign in New Hampshire.

“Sarah has worked in communications and rapid response for campaigns across the country, and we could not be more thrilled to have her on board to hold Congressman Heck accountable and elect Catherine Cortez Masto to the United States Senate,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange.  “Sarah will be instrumental in getting our message out to voters about the choice in this race between Catherine Cortez Masto’s record as a problem solver who works with both parties to help people, and Congressman Heck’s narrow conservative agenda that is responsible for the gridlock and dysfunction in Washington.”

“I’m excited to get to work to elect the first Latina Senator in United States history and to make sure Nevada voters understand just how out of touch Congressman Heck is with Nevada families,” said Zukowski.  “From voting with his Party 90% of the time, to opposing an increase in the minimum wage, to his multiple votes to defund Planned Parenthood and deport Nevada DREAMers, to his plan to abolish the Department of Education, Congressman Heck has proven time and again he can’t be trusted to fight for Nevada’s middle class in Washington.”
