Rebuilding Nevada

Thanks to U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Northern Nevada will have the resources that it needs to protect homes and businesses from flooding in the Truckee Meadows.

Health Care Has Improved; Let’s Keep the Progress Going

Virginia has become the most recent state to expand Medicaid. Thanks to a few bold Republicans in the state’s legislature, more Virginians will have access to the healthcare they need.
