Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, told a crowd of about 200 Democrats in Carson City on Wednesday this election “is about our Democracy, about whether we are truly a Democratic nation.”
“The reason we’re here fighting is for our values,” she said.
Faced with the millions of dollars flooding Republican coffers from the likes of the Koch Brothers, Warren said the key for Democrats is turnout.
“The Koch Brothers believe if they drop a few more million into Nevada they can buy the election,” she said referring to Catherine Cortez-Masto’s race against Republican Joe Heck.
“When everybody votes, we win,” she said.
She said everyone should have the ability to get an education “without being crushed by debt.” Warren said everyone should be able to organize and fight for better pay and benefits, adding organized labor built the U.S. “I can’t believe I have to say this in 2016 but we believe in equal pay for equal work and a woman’s right to control her own body,” she said.
She said it’s crucial Democrats keep the White House and win back the U.S. Senate to make it possible to advance Hillary Clinton’s agenda and put her appointments on the Supreme Court.
Warren addressed the crowd outside Carson City Democratic headquarters speaking just 10 minutes from the bed of a pickup truck before heading to her next event.
