Chicago, IL – iVote, the campaign to educate voters about the importance of secretaries of state in protecting voting rights, released a new ad today which highlights Kate Marshall's record of serving Nevadans with Barbara Cegavske's record of looking out for her own interests. The thirty second ad, entitled "Herself," will air today and run through election day statewide. You can find a link to the ad and transcript below.
For Secretary of State, a clear choice.
Kate Marshall’s a proven fighter for the middle class.
As Treasurer, Marshall started the state’s first-ever college savings program.
And she made state government more efficient, saving taxpayers millions.
Then there’s Barbara Cegavske.
She’s repeatedly voted against raising the minimum wage…
but billed taxpayers $55,000 in food and travel costs
and raised her own compensation 47 percent.
Barbara Cegavske’s out for herself.
Kate Marshall’s looking out for us."
