Laxalt, the top candidate in Nevada's Senate GOP primary, looks ahead to challenging Cortez Masto

In another part of Las Vegas, the Culinary Union, Democrats' largest get-out-the-vote machine in Nevada, canvassed door to door. Wearing giant hats and clutching electronic tablets of voter information, Ariana Tovar and her team walked slowly through the searing heat.
Tovar has been walking six days a week, 10 hours a day since late March. A Latina housekeeper in a casino, Tovar sees Cortez Masto, the country's first Latina senator, as someone whom she's determined to keep in office.
The Culinary Union, representing 60,000 hospitality workers in Nevada's biggest cities, is a majority people of color organization and has been a potent force in turning out Democratic voters in Clark County, the largest in the state.
But Tovar admitted this midterm won't be easy based on what she's hearing at the doors.
Tovar said. "...I don't think it's the Democrats' fault but it's gonna be tough. We're gonna work for Democrats. That's why we're doing this, to help them."
