At a glance

  • Amid the onslaught of negative ads and accusations on both sides in the bitterly fought Nevada Senate race, Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto’s closing argument includes an urgent but practical message to supporters.
  • During stops at the Great Las Vegas Taco Festival, while celebrating Diwali with Hindus, and at a variety show with the Filipino community, Cortez Masto stressed the importance of early voting.
