CORTEZ MASTO: I'm Catherine Cortez Masto and I come from a big family. A whole lot of people, a whole lot of love and a whole lot of food. My dad's family was from Mexico. My mom's was from Italy. Sixty years ago they met here in Nevada and we grew as a family -- really grew as a family.

CYNTHIA (sister): Dad got his start parking cars at the Dunes Hotel, but he went on to be the head of tourism for Las Vegas and helped build the city we know today.

CORTEZ MASTO: Dad lived his life following three principles: work hard, be honest and respect everyone. That's what I tried to do as attorney general.

PAUL MASTO: Catherine took on the big banks when they preyed on homeowners and forced them to pay $1.9 billion dollars to Nevadans.

CYNTHIA (niece): She became a national leader in protecting children from sex traffickers.

JOANNA (mother): And passed laws to keep senior safe from crooked scams.

CORTEZ MASTO: I'm Catherine Cortez Masto. I approve this message, because I've spent my career solving problems. Isn't that something we need more of in Washington?
