We can only win this 3 hours at a time...


That's right.  A three-hour shift.  That's what we're asking from all Washoe County Democrats.  We know you can find three hours between now and 7 pm on Nov. 8 when the polls close to help carry Nevada for Hillary Clinton, Catherine Cortez Masto, Chip Evans, and all of our candidates.  Three hours of your time could very well determine which way Washoe County swings.  We are THE swing county in the swing state of Nevada. 

Volunteers are needed to canvass or call supporters to remind them to vote, and enter data.  That's it.  It's not complicated, it's not hard.  It IS how Democrats win races.

So please call 323-VOTE, that's 323-8683 today to schedule your 3-hour shift.   Our Democratic candidates are depending on you!

FactCheckHeck.com Pushing Back on Attacks Against Catherine Cortez Masto


Outside groups backed by the Koch brothers, Mitch McConnell and other Washington Republicans have spent almost $20 million falsely attacking Catherine Cortez Masto’s record as Attorney General.

To help push back on these attacks, please visit FactCheckHeck.com, which lays out the truth behind each and every one of the false claims being made against Catherine. Also be sure to follow our Twitter @FactCheckHeck for real-time updates.  

Anyone who worked with Catherine knows she spent every day as Attorney General fighting for Nevadans and did so with the utmost integrity. Working with Republicans and Democrats, she passed over 40 bills that help protect our children, our seniors, and our state’s most vulnerable.

Catherine is going to bring that same bipartisan, problem-solving approach to Washington as our next U.S. Senator. But we need your help pushing back on these false and disgusting attacks. Please visit FactCheckHeck.com and follow us @FactCheckHeck on Twitter, to learn the truth behind these ads and who is paying for them. Together, we can elect the first Latina to the U.S. Senate!

Bonnie Barber
Our Volunteer of the Month!

Bonnie has been a political activist since the late 1970's when she moved to Alaska and joined the Fairbanks Education Association.  She quickly learned how political decisions and who we elect affect education and many other aspects of our daily lives.  

After many years of lobbying for school funding, Bonnie and her family moved to Reno where she joined the American Association of University Women (AAUW), and then, soon after, became a volunteer leader for the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign.  She used her organizing skills to lead her neighborhood team and help carry Washoe County for President Obama and other Democrats on the ballot.

She has been actively engaged in every election since.  Bonnie also staffs our front desk every Friday morning, helps register new voters, and is a member of our 300/300 Campaign.  Thanks, Bonnie, for everything you do!  


In Reno, Cortez Masto & Women’s Health Advocates: Politicians Who Support Trump Should be “Punished,” Not Nevada Women

Reno, NV – This morning, at a woman-owned small business in Reno, former Nevada Attorney General and U.S. Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto and women’s health advocates slammed Donald Trump and Congressman Heck’s dangerous agenda on women’s health. Earlier this week, the Supreme Court struck down Texas laws that severely limited women’s access to safe, affordable health care. While the ruling is a victory for women’s health, Nevada women’s access to preventative healthcare is still in jeopardy due to Republicans like Donald Trump and Congressman Heck.

“While the Supreme Court’s ruling was a major victory for women’s health across the country, Congressman Heck and Republicans in Washington continue to play politics with the health and safety of women,” said Cortez Masto. “Congressman Heck has spent his time in Washington putting his Party ahead of solving problems for the people of this state. Congressman Heck not only opposes a woman’s right to choose – he has voted time and again to defund Planned Parenthood. Congressman Heck also supports Donald Trump for President, someone who says he wants to 'punish' women who have abortions. A woman’s health care decisions should be between herself and her doctor, not politicians like Donald Trump and Congressman Heck.”

statement here.
