NEVADA — Today the Human Rights Campaign PAC (HRC PAC) announced its endorsement of five pro-equality candidates for the Nevada State Legislature in today’s primary. Earlier this year, HRC also announced its endorsement of Nevada US Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Governor Steve Sisolak and Attorney General Aaron Ford for reelection. HRC PAC is committed to engaging our volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize the more than 700,000 Equality Voters in Nevada in support of pro-equality candidates up and down the ballot.
Human Rights Campaign Nevada State Director Karl Catarata released the following statement:
“The Human Rights Campaign is proud to support leaders who will fight for LGBTQ+ Nevadans. 85% of Nevadans support laws that protect LGBTQ+ people from discrimination according to recent PRRI polling data, and our state has seen many successes over the past few years to advance LGBTQ+ equality. But as states across the nation face an onslaught of anti-LGBTQ+ attacks in state legislatures, we know that our fight is far from over. We need to elect leaders who will advance equality for all Nevadans, no matter who they are or who they love.”
Today’s endorsements include:
Melanie Scheible (State Senate District 9)
Daniele Monroe-Moreno (State Assembly District 1)
Will Rucker (State Assembly District 13)
Cecelia González (State Assembly District 16)
Sarah Peters (State Assembly District 24)
HRC’s Commitment to Nevada
Equality Voters, including the more than 700,000 Equality Voters in Nevada are a voting bloc of demographically and geographically diverse Americans who are united by the advancement of LGBTQ+ equality. Equality Voters are younger, more racially diverse, and more female than the general electorate, they recognize and trust the HRC brand, and they are more likely to identify with issue-specific organizations than candidates or political parties.
HRC has had staff and resources on the ground in Nevada since 2017. Across the country, HRC PAC works every day to elect pro-equality leaders who support policies that will support the rights and lives of LGBTQ+ people. During the 2020 election cycle, HRC staff on the ground recruited 5,800 individual volunteers nationwide who completed 28,500 hours of voter contact in more than 2,650 volunteer events. HRC engaged in robust digital and online GOTV efforts, including sending over 2.7 million person-to-person text messages, a massive increase from 2018 when approximately 500,000 texts were sent. HRC sent over 2.5 million mail pieces, had over 930,000 phone conversations with voters, and engaged more than 200,000 voters through HRC’s voter dashboard at hrc.org/vote.
