Cortez Masto will continue to advance economic and social equality in Nevada, and prioritize the prosperity of all those she represents when re-elected.”
Nevada AAPI Community and Business Leader Tim Wong issued the following statement:
“I am proud to endorse U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto as she has worked to protect immigrants in Nevada’s AAPI communities, supported small businesses impacted by the pandemic, and passed legislation to combat anti-Asian hate crimes.”

“The many different AAPI communities in Nevada are vibrant, essential parts of our state. Throughout my career I have worked to support and protect AAPI families, businesses, and workers, delivering critical resources during the pandemic and standing up against racism targeting these communities.
