Of the deadly drunk drivers Cortez Masto released early as Nevada’s Attorney General, 20 percent went back to prison – and 80 percent ended up back on the road.

The ad is part of a major television and digital buy in Nevada and begins airing today in the Las Vegas and Reno markets.

“Catherine Cortez Masto failed Nevada families over and over again. She neglected her duty to keep Nevada safe as Attorney General and her decision to allow dangerous drunk drivers back on the road endangered lives. As the state’s top law enforcement official, Cortez Masto should have put the safety of Nevada families first – but every dangerous drunk driver allowed back on the road put lives at risk.” – NRSC spokesman Greg Blair
