NV Dems Chair Commends Cortez Masto Campaign’s Debate Challenge to Congressman Heck

“The campaign’s proposal is the first of its kind in Nevada history…highlighting the leadership Catherine will bring to Washington”

Las Vegas, NV – Today, Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange issued the following statement commending Catherine Cortez Masto’s Senate campaign for its groundbreaking proposal regarding debates with her opponent, Congressman Heck:

Catherine’s campaign’s proposal is the first of its kind in the modern history of Nevada Senate races – never before has a Senate campaign required Nevada’s Spanish-language media host a debate. This proposal highlights Catherine’s commitment to ensuring the Latino community has a voice in this election. Catherine has spent her campaign engaging all of Nevada’s diverse communities, and as the first Latina U.S. Senator in history, we know she will be a unique voice for Nevada’s burgeoning Hispanic community in Washington.

“This stands in stark contrast with her opponent, Congressman Heck, who continues to support Donald Trump to be our next President. Congressman Heck shares Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda that would tear families apart and repeal the citizenship of American citizens born to immigrant families. This debate proposal makes clear that Catherine Cortez Masto is the only candidate for Senate that Nevada’s Latino community can trust to fight for them.”
