Joe Heck’s Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Week Continued with Clear Loss to Cortez Masto

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement on Catherine Cortez Masto’s decisive win in tonight’s U.S. Senate debate:

“Joe Heck may have had high hopes his train wreck of a week was coming to an end, but his clear loss to Catherine Cortez Masto ruins any chance of that. Catherine was the decisive winner as she highlighted her record of solving problems for Nevada families, in contrast to Joe Heck, who is part of the problem in Washington. Joe Heck spent the debate on the defensive for his votes against Nevada families in Washington and his support for entrusting Donald Trump with the nuclear launch codes. Joe Heck’s support of Donald Trump wasn’t a blip on the radar. He spent months being Trump’s biggest supporter in Nevada even while other Republicans like Brian Sandoval and Dean Heller were disavowing Trump. Joe Heck only abandoned Donald Trump when it threatened his political career.”
