To be a US senator one should need far more than an American law degree (the sum total of Catherine Cortez-Masto's political acumen). The US senate is brimming with lawyers.
When you as a citizen of Nevada vote for a candidate to go to Washington, D.C., as your U.S. Senator, to represent the life altering interests that effect the lives of blue collar/no collar Americans, you hope they'll do as promised to better your life and the lives of your family and friends. You hope they'll do what we see Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren doing daily to better the lives of the people who sent them there.
Catherine Cortez-Masto is a phone-it-in-senator like so many before her, with a smug sense of entitlement. Her personal legislative accomplishments are zero - she forwards silliness as her hallmark legislation. She can't point to one real piece of legislation she's sponsored of noteworthiness - not one bill in the senate - and believe me I've searched high and low.
Even going back to her early days as a criminal prosecutor for the US Attorney's office in D.C., she can't point to a single case of her personally prosecuting any murderous, racists, criminal class cops in any state in the union, when right here in Nevada, it was (and still is) open season on black and brown Nevadans by those same racists cops killing black and brown Americans like it was 1920 Mississippi (with state sponsored impunity).
And, when she came in as Nevada's Attorney General - for 8 years - she didn't review not one case of LVMPD racist cops murdering some unarmed black or brown human being for suspicion of suspicion (there is no statute of limitations on murder - so she could have gone back to the 1940's/1950's if the SOB's were still alive and charged them with murder).
My temperature rises even talking about her ineptitude.
She's just a waste of good political space. She's just another phone-it-in phony-period.
As quiet as it's kept, Catherine Cortez-Masto is Republican-lite on the Down Low.
And, Adam Laxalt is a Carpetbagger - a garden variety political hustler.
