LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Democratic U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto announced on social media Wednesday morning that she will officially run for a second term.

She was the first Latina to serve in the U.S. Senate when she won her race in 2016.

In a video, Cortez Masto said she will always make Nevada families a top priority in the U.S. Senate. She said there is a lot to do, especially after the past year when Nevada saw thousands of people lose their jobs due to the pandemic.

Cortez Masto currently leads a subcommittee on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee that oversees the mining industry and public lands.
