She also added that Nevada is a place where nobody is left behind. This means that the area stands up for its people, even if no one is supporting them.
After the race’s final decision came out, Adam Laxalt hasn’t commented. According to a close source, he hasn’t even called Cortez Masto with a concession. Taking to Twitter on Saturday, Adam Laxalt acknowledged the supporters and said that he would be overtaken by Cortez Masto because the mail ballots are still counted. After that, there has been no tweet from him.
The winning of Catherine Cortez Masto was one of the replies to her critics who said about everything she said was a complete lie and it wasn’t going to make her win. So, in the final campaigning weeks, Catherine’s messages about democracy were accelerated.
