659: Catherine Cortez Masto
The First Latina State Attorney General in the United States
Born: 29 March 1964, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States of America
Catherine served the state of Nevada.
She is a member of the Democrat Party and is now the senior senator from Nevada starting in 2017—becoming the first female senator from Nevada and the first Latina Senator from any state.
Her main focus includes ending human trafficking at the state and local levels and fighting for better healthcare for women and children across the country. As of 2020, Catherine sits on five committees in the United States Senate.
Catherine’s husband is a retired secret service agent.
Her term as Senator will end in 2023, so we’ll see if she runs again in the 2022 election.
