Nevada Attorney general of the united states Catherine Cortez Masto is shown in this file image talking to media at the Legislative Building in Carson City on May 29, 2013.

U.S. Sen. Harry Reid used his visit Friday to the Las Vegas Latin Chamber of Commerce luncheon to lob praise on Catherine Cortez Masto, the Democrat intending to prosper him in the Senate when he retires next year.

Cortez Masto, who served eight years as Nevada’s attorney general, announced her candidacy for Reid’s Senate seat in April.

“Catherine is going to win to be my replacement since she is the ideal person,” Reid stated. “She is someone the state of Nevada needs. We have actually been waiting for a Latina to come to the United States Senate forever.”

Referencing Cortez Masto’s track record and “excellent family tree”– her daddy, Manny Cortez, headed the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for 13 years– Reid stated he is confident she’s the best person to succeed him. The Senate minority leader backed Cortez Masto from the minute he announced his decision to retire, prior to she even tossed her hat in the ring.

“This lady is a standout in whatever she has actually done,” Reid stated at the luncheon, where Cortez Masto was also in attendance.

Two years earlier, the Senate passed a comprehensive migration reform bill, but the legislation has actually never made it to your house floor for a vote.

“Things we’re not going to do is do (migration reform) piecemeal,” he said. “We’re not going to do a little bit here and a bit there. We’re going to do it all at once. That’s the only method it’s fair.”

The senator’s statements, which accompanied the Latin Chamber’s 40th anniversary, largely revolved around exactly what he called discord in Washington and the mounting value of the 2016 elections. He advised voters to begin asking candidates their views on concerns, such as migration reform, the minimum wage, student loan financial obligation, Yucca Mountain and transport infrastructure repair services.

Before his speech, Reid likewise responded to election-related questions from the media, varying from the Democratic debate Tuesday in Las Vegas to the significance of the Hispanic vote.

“I believed Hillary Clinton did very well,” Reid said, referring to the presidential prospect’s dispute performance. “She’s a skilled taker of concerns.”

Reid went on to explain himself as a testimony to the increasing significance of the Hispanic vote, a group he said is continuously growing and ending up being more organized.

“The very first ad (opponents) ran versus me stated, ‘Harry Reid: best friend prohibited immigrants ever had,'” he said. “All it did was distressed the Hispanic community. They rolled up their sleeves and ended up like they had actually never ever ended up previously.”
