We Didn’t Elect The First Woman President, But We Elected The First Latina Senator

With Donald Trump elected as president, many of us have woke up feeling discomfort, shock, despair, fear and disappointment. Although history was not made by electing a woman as president of the United States, history was made at a smaller scale. The first Latina has been elected to senate: Catherine Cortez Masto – our beacon of hope.

We didn’t elect the first woman president, but America made history by electing the first Latina senator – Nevada’s Catherine Cortez Masto.

Many thanks to our great President @BarackObama for joining us in Las Vegas today & reminding Nevada about what's at stake in this election. #NvSen

After last night’s results, Cortez Masto stresses, “As the first Latina senator I will use my seat at the table to fight for diversity.”

Being the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants, Cortez Masto strongly believes that “we must pass comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship… Building walls is NOT the answer.”


More than ever, Cortez Masto is also standing for the equality of women.

She firmly believes that “women should earn the same as men do for the same job.”

Catherine Cortez Masto has our back.



Just as her supporters have her back.


And despite everything, she has faith en seguir luchando.



Because we cannot give up. 💪🏾

Now, more than ever, we have to raise our voices higher.



And with Catherine Cortez Masto as our first Latina senator, we have a powerful chance.

Congratulations, senadora!
