Throughout Catherine Cortez Masto’s time in the Senate, she has joined the radical Left to destroy America’s energy independence. She voted against energy exploration, in favor of banning diverse energy sources in the U.S., and FOUR TIMES to halt the Keystone XL Pipeline.
As Nevadans face record-high gas prices and some of the highest gas prices in the nation, Cortez Masto’s extremism is now catching up to her. It is no surprise that Cortez Masto is attempting to abandon her Green New Deal credentials to push a phony gas tax plan that would do nothing to help lower costs for Nevadans.
WATCH the NRSC’s new digital ad to learn more about how Catherine Cortez Masto is failing Nevada families.
Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Katharine Cooksey: “Nevadans don’t need Catherine Cortez Masto’s fake regrets about the outrageous prices at the pump. Nevadans need a senator who is proud to support American energy independence instead of radical, Green New Deal proposals that destroy America’s energy independence and are causing gas prices to hit record-highs in Nevada. Cortez Masto has caused this pain, and her purely political gas tax plan won’t do anything to help struggling families.”
