After Receiving Endorsement Yesterday From La Prensa Latina Newspaper, Shelley Berkley Accepts Endorsement From El Mundo Newspaper, the oldest and largest Hispanic-owned Newspaper in Nevada.
El Mundo Owner Eddie Escobedo Jr. Praises Shelley’s Record Of Fighting For Latino Families Across Nevada While Slamming Senator Heller’s Dismal Record On Latino Issues
Las Vegas— Today, U.S. Senate candidate Shelley Berkley received the endorsement of El Mundo newspaper, Nevada’s oldest and largest Hispanic-owned newspaper, outside of Cardenas Market in Las Vegas. Shelley was joined by El Mundo owner Eddie Escobedo Jr., and state Assemblywoman Lucy Flores at the endorsement event, who both spoke about Shelley’s long record of standing up for Nevada’s Latino community and Senator Dean Heller’s dismal record on Latino issues.
“I’m proud and honored to receive the endorsement of El Mundo newspaper, Nevada’s oldest and largest Hispanic-owned newspaper,” said U.S. Senate candidate Shelley Berkley. “While my opponent continues to turn a blind eye to the Latino community in Nevada by skipping candidate forums, blowing off scheduled meetings, and voting against the DREAM Act while cutting funding for Pell grants and support for small businesses, I’ll continue to prioritize Latino families across Nevada by fighting to create good-paying jobs, giving Nevada small businesses the tools to expand and hire, making education affordable and accessible for all, and continuing to press for passage of the DREAM Act.”
“When it comes to the important issues impacting Latino families in Nevada, there is an ocean of difference between Shelley Berkley’s commitment to creating good-paying jobs and her opponent, Republican Senator Dean Heller’s anti-middle class, pro-Wall Street agenda, and that’s why I’m proud to endorse Shelley on behalf of El Mundo newspaper,” said Eddie Escobedo Jr., the owner of El Mundo newspaper. “Shelley will continue standing up for Latino working families by fighting for good-paying jobs, giving small businesses the tools to hire again, protecting Medicare and Social Security, and voting for the DREAM Act. Senator Dean Heller’s record on Latino issues is atrocious, and he continues to stand with Republicans like Mitt Romney in putting Wall Street millionaires, billionaires, Big Oil companies, and corporations that ship our jobs overseas first, and Latino working families last.”
El Mundo is the second Spanish-language newspaper endorsement Shelley has received in as many days. Yesterday, Shelley received the endorsement of La Prensa Latina, a Spanish-language newspaper in Nevada that praised her long record of standing up for the Latino community in Nevada, while calling Senator Heller’s record on the issues important to Latino families in Nevada misguided and anti-middle class.
