State of Nevada Archives: on Abortion


Catherine Cortez Masto: Endorsed by EMILY's List

Catherine Cortez Masto, seeking to become the first Latina elected to the Senate, has won the endorsement of EMILY's List. The group that supports Democratic women who back abortion rights hailed the former Nevada attorney general as a champion of women and families. "Catherine is a dedicated public servant with a record of working to make communities safer, prevent violence against women and increase educational opportunities so that all Nevadans have a fair shot," said EMILY's List President.

If she wins the 2016 race, Cortez Masto also would become the first woman elected to the Senate to represent Nevada. She is the fourth female Senate candidate endorsed by EMILY's List so far this cycle, joining incumbent Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, who is seeking a fifth term in 2016, and candidates Kamala Harris in California and Rep. Donna Edwards in Maryland.
