Las Vegas, NV – Nevada Congresswoman Shelley Berkley will continue her “Jobs Here, Not China” tour in Reno tomorrow. Berkley will highlight her commitment to creating jobs in Nevada, in contrast to unelected Senator Dean Heller’s votes to protect the Chinese government’s unfair trade policies that are cheating Nevada workers out of their jobs.

The event will highlight the clear choice Nevadans have in next year’s election between Berkley’s commitment to creating jobs in Nevada and Dean Heller’s standing with the Chinese government over unemployed Nevadans.

The press conference will be at 1:30 pm tomorrow afternoon at the Washoe Democratic Party headquarters.

 What: Reno stop on her “Jobs Here, Not China” Tour to highlight Berkley’s commitment to creating jobs in Nevada, not China.

Emily’s List: Senate Protection Project

It’s a simple fact, but it couldn’t be more important: if the Emily’s List pro-choice Democratic women win, then Democrats can hold the Senate majority. In 2012, six Emily’s List senators are up for reelection — that’s half of the Democratic women in the Senate! With appalling legislation coming out of the GOP-controlled House on just about a daily basis, these women have been the crucial firewall blocking the draconian Republican agenda.

The Senate Protection Project is about getting and keeping Emily’s List advocates in the Senate — Maria Cantwell, Dianne Feinstein, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, Claire McCaskill, and Debbie Stabenow — and about providing them with the resources they need to hold onto their seats in 2012. Contribute to one or more of these Emily’s List senators today so they can start their campaigns strong.

Since launching their Senate Protection Project, Emily’s List has seized on an exciting pick-up opportunity in our state: U.S. Rep. Shelley Berkley. Shelley has rightly earned her reputation as one of the “hardest-working women in politics.”  She’s now earned a coveted Senate endorsement from Emily’s List. It’s early yet, but Berkley’s polling is very promising, and there’s no doubt she’ll be an incredible campaigner against Dean Heller for that Senate seat. Learn more about Shelley here and give her your support today.
