"I'm excited and energized by the overwhelming support Nevadans have shown my campaign," Kate Marshall said. "This election is about Nevadans, and with 12.5% unemployment and Medicare and Social Security on the chopping block, Nevadans want someone who will fight for their families. In Congress, I won't give in to the special interests or dole out billions of dollars in bailouts to Wall Street and big oil companies, but I will bring my proven record of even-handed financial management and dedication to fighting for Nevada's working families to Washington."
