Former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto beat Rep. Joe Heck in a race for a US Senate seat and will become the first Latina senator to serve in Congress. Cortez Masto will replace Sen. Harry Reid, who was one of her most visible supporters throughout her candidacy. Cortez Masto spoke to Mother Jones about her family’s immigration story. “My grandfather came from Mexico for the very reason that many other families have come here, which is an opportunity to succeed, to make sure your kids have more than what you had,” she said.
