SMP Statement on Senator Cortez Masto’s Victory in Nevada as Democrats Defend Senate Majority

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority PAC President JB Poersch released the following statement congratulating Senator Catherine Cortez Masto on her re-election victory in Nevada, securing our Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate:

“With Senator Cortez Masto’s victory, Democrats have accomplished a historic feat in defending our Senate majority against all odds and when the conventional wisdom said we have no business even being in the fight. The last time Senate Democrats successfully defended all our seats as the party in power during a midterm election was sixty years ago, in 1962, and we fully intend to make history once again and expand our majority as we head into the runoff cycle in Georgia.”

“Senator Cortez Masto is a dedicated public servant with a proven record of delivering for Nevada and fighting for hard-working families like her own. From creating good-paying union jobs to protecting abortion rights, Nevadans know they can trust her to look out for them and always do what’s right for the Silver State—that’s why they’re sending her back to the Senate.”

“SMP is deeply proud that our significant investments in the Silver State helped to make the choice crystal clear for voters: a Senator who will fight for them at every turn versus a corrupt politician who uses public office to serve himself and his corporate special interest allies—not Nevadans.”

“We thank and commend Senate Democratic Leader Schumer for his strong leadership and the entire Senate Democratic Caucus for their hard work this cycle. Congratulations to each of our winning candidates, their campaigns, our local and national allies, the DSCC, and our SMP staff for their tireless efforts and the pivotal role they played in defending our Democratic Senate majority during one of the most significant elections of our lifetimes.”

“Voters across the country measured what Democrats have achieved and sent a message loud and clear in rejecting GOP extremism and re-electing a Senate majority that will deliver for the American people. Now, it’s time for all of us to come together to protect our freedoms, defend our democracy, and fight for hard-working families — and that is exactly what Senate Democrats will continue to do.”

“Now, our work continues in Georgia to ensure Reverend Warnock is re-elected and to expand our majority.”


For Background Purposes — SMP’s 2022 Investments in Nevada:

  • SMP and its affiliated organizations invested over $42.3 million in paid communications in Nevada’s Senate race, including television, radio, and digital advertising, helping to highlight the wins Senator Cortez Masto delivered for Nevadans while also successfully defining our opponent early on as corrupt, self-serving, and too extreme on abortion.
