“I am a Republican, but Catherine has earned our support in rural Nevada” – Mayor Nathan Robertson

Ely, NV – The mayor of Ely, Nevada, Nathan Robertson, announced his support for Senator Catherine Cortez Masto’s reelection campaign today. Mayor Robertson is a fifth generation Nevadan who highlighted Cortez Masto’s advocacy for rural Nevadans and mining jobs in his endorsement.

“I am proud to endorse Senator Cortez Masto because she has listened to the needs of the people of Ely and has consistently delivered for us in the Senate,” said Mayor Robertson. “I am a Republican, but Catherine has earned our support in rural Nevada by blocking new taxes on our mining industry and supporting funding for local infrastructure needs. I know she will continue working hard in the Senate to champion issues important to all rural Nevadans.”

“Mayor Robertson is a strong advocate for Ely and for all of rural Nevada and I’m proud to have his support,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “My priority is delivering for Nevadans in every corner of our state, and I will continue to work with both Democrats and Republicans to get the job done.”

Catherine is always fighting for Nevada’s rural communities, working with anyone to deliver for them. She took on her own party and led the Senate fight to protect Nevada’s family farms and ranches from an unfair tax hike. She stood strong for Nevada’s mining industry, single-handedly stopping new mining taxes which would have hurt a critical rural industry and the tens of thousands of good-paying Nevada jobs it supports. She passed a bipartisan bill to ensure rural Nevadans have access to reliable high-speed internet, and in response to a shortage of health care providers in rural Nevada, she is leading the fight to increase the number of physicians in rural hospitals.

Catherine is a leader in the Senate working to lower costs for Nevada families. She’s holding Big Oil companies accountable for high gas prices and pushing for common-sense bills to bring these costs down, working to cap the price of insulin at $35 and lower prescription drug costs and housing costs for Nevada families.
