Cortez Masto to go up on TV

Democratic U.S. Senate contender Catherine Cortez Masto has made a six-figure buy in Nevada that begins Wednesday with a bio ad designed to introduce her to voters.

In the one-minute spot, she emphasizes her large family, including her father, who is identified as being from Mexican heritage and heading the Las Vegas tourism efforts (he ran the convention authority) but who was best known as a Clark County commissioner (not mentioned). Her efforts to fight sex trafficking also are mentioned, as well as endorsements from family members.

Message: She's real, she's from humble roots, she's a Latina and she fought evil.
