Why AP called Nevada Senate race for Catherine Cortez Masto

Why AP called Nevada Senate race for Catherine Cortez Masto

By Mike Catalini, Associated Press, Nov. 12, 2022

The Associated Press called the Nevada Senate race for Democrat Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto on Saturday after a batch of votes from the Las Vegas area gave her a 5,000-vote lead that the AP determined she would not relinquish.

The win for Cortez Masto also meant Democrats would keep control of the Senate.

The AP concluded Cortez Masto’s lead would carry even if Republican Adam Laxalt made gains in rural Nevada counties that are still counting votes.

Her victory allows the Democrats to retain control the Senate with at least 50 seats because of Vice President Kamala Harris’ tiebreaking vote even without a victory in the Georgia runoff in December.

Congratulations to Sen. Cortez Masto! And to all of us.

Now, let's re-elect Senator Warnock for the icing on the cake.

Want to help re-elect Sen. Warnock? Send letters to Georgia voters!

Vote Forward has pivoted to the Georgia senate runoff. As you may know, Vote Forward identifies Dem-leaning voters who may need a little extra nudge to get them to the polls. Volunteers can "adopt" blocks of voters to send hand-written letters (using the Vote Forward template).

The goal is to send non-partisan GOTV letters to voters who don't always show up to the polls, but when they do are likely to vote for Democrats. It's entirely anonymous for the sender (you sign your first name only and don't use your return address). The project has boosted Democratic turnout since the project launched in 2018. 249,000 Vote Forward volunteers have sent 29 million letters to voters in the past four years, helping to boost turnout by as much as 3.4 percentage points. In races as close as the ones we're trying to win, that's huge!

As I post this on Friday afternoon, Vote Forward volunteers have adopted 399,760 Georgia voters and will be sending them letters in the coming days. (Instead of one "Big Send" day as in previous campaigns, these are going out ASAP given the short runway to the start of early voting in advance of the Dec. 6 election day.) There are currently 215,233 unclaimed voters, so feel free to jump in! If you haven't done this before, you might want to claim 5 names and addresses to start, to make sure this is a good volunteer activity for you.

I've sent Vote Forward letters to a few hundred voters in various states during the past couple of election cycles. It's a good feeling to know I'm contributing to the success of Dems--and supporting the post office in the process!

The only active campaigns at this point are two for Georgia's runoff pitting Warnock against the play sheriff guy Trump anointed:
  1. a “Social Campaign” to support Vote Forward’s core social mission of helping to increase the participation of historically underrepresented communities in the electorate.

  2. a “Political Campaign” to support the political efforts that Vote Forward, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, undertakes in addition to its core social mission.

Let me know if I can help answer any questions, or you can get more information here:

Happy letter writing!

As of 10:50 pm, 32% of DeKalb County GA's votes are not yet tabulated.

Warnock is winning here with 87 percent of the vote. So there could be a lot more of a blue shift in the remaining tally.

I don't want to give false hope, but of the remaining votes around the state, a quick review of the largest population centers shows that it's way too early to assume we have to go to a runoff.

Oh, yes -- and almost 30 percent of the Fulton County votes are still out. Warnock leads there with 75.6% of the vote at this point.

I'm turning in, if I can sleep. Will check back later. Fingers crossed!
