Crowd boos Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto at Nevada Day Parade

Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) was greeted with anything but a warm welcome at the 84th Annual Nevada Day Parade in Carson City on Saturday.

As the vulnerable incumbent traveled with parade-goers atop a re-election campaign float, she was greeted by a host of boos, angry shouts and thumbs-down gestures, campaign video of his Republican opponent shows.

“The crowd in Carson City booed Catherine Cortez Masto harshly today,” GOP U.S. Senate candidate Adam Laxalt’s campaign wrote on Twitter. “It is not a surprise ! Nevadans don’t want a rubber stamp for Biden to represent them in the Senate. »

The Laxalt team released another video showing cheers and positive reactions from the crowd as former Laxalt State Attorney General passed by on his own float.

The starkly different crowd responses come less than 10 days before Cortez Masto and Laxalt face off in the midterm elections. Laxalt has narrowly led his Democratic opponent since September, with at least ten polls showing him in the lead.

“Nevadians are sending a clear message that they do not want a Biden rubber stamp in the Senate. They want a senator who will fight on their behalf day in and day out. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do,” Laxalt tweeted.

Cortez Masto didn’t post any video of the parade to Twitter, but she did post a photo calling the experience “incredible.”

“I am always proud to celebrate our state and the wonderful communities that call it home to all of us. Thank you to our firefighters for your support and for joining me today,” she said.
