U.S. Senate candidate Shelley Berkley made the last stop of her week-long statewide "Keeping Jobs In Nevada" tour at the Nevada AFL-CIO Convention in Reno. The tour highlighted Shelley's record of fighting to create good-paying Nevada jobs that can't be outsourced, and the Dean Heller -- Paul Ryan -- Mitt Romney agenda of protecting tax breaks for corporations that ship American jobs overseas while opposing measures to create jobs at here at home. Shelley talked to voters in Boulder City, Carson City, Winnemucca and Elko, before wrapping up her tour today in Reno.
"What Nevada needs is a Senator who understands who she is fighting for -- and understands that we must create good-paying jobs right here at home that can't be outsourced." said U.S. Senate candidate Shelley Berkley. "I'm running for the United States Senate because Nevada can't afford the Heller-Ryan-Romney agenda that protects Wall Street corporations and special interests -- while Nevada middle-class families get the rug pulled out from underneath them. We need to invest in our small businesses and create good-paying middle-class jobs that will last for generations to come -- not get shipped overseas."
Along with highlighting Shelley's record of fighting to create jobs in Nevada, the tour brought to light the Heller-Ryan-Romney agenda of protecting tax breaks for corporations that ship American jobs overseas and opposing measures to jump-start job creation at home in Nevada like giving small businesses the tools they need to hire and investing in clean energy.
