In Nevada, Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto is in a tossup race to defend her seat in opposition to Republican Adam Laxalt, who succeeded her as state lawyer basic six years in the past.
Cortez Masto, 58, is taken into account to be essentially the most weak Democratic senator preventing for reelection, and if Laxalt defeats her, it is going to be an important pickup for Republicans seeking to flip the seat and achieve management of the higher chamber.
Cortez Masto turned the primary Latina senator when she gained the race in 2016 to succeed the late Sen. Harry Reid when he retired on the finish of his time period, and this cycle’s contest may very well be determined by a razor-thin margin — she and Laxalt are neck-in-neck heading into Election Day, in response to a CBS News ballot.
CBS News’ Battleground Tracker charges this race a toss-up.
