Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto lambasted President Donald Trump's efforts to undermine by-mail voting -- accusing Trump of hypocrisy over how he casts his own ballot in Florida.
"Even Donald Trump has requested an absentee ballot twice this year," she said.
Trump has targeted Nevada over the state's efforts to mail ballots to registered voters this year, as states adjust their election procedures amid the pandemic. Democrats in Congress have sought to increase funding for the US Postal Service, which has warned states it might not be able to process mail-in ballots in time in November.
"He is putting the lives of Nevada’s seniors at risk by trying to defund the post office. Here’s what that means: they won’t be able to get their prescriptions, because he wants to win an election," Cortez Masto said. "Mr. President: Nevada is not intimidated by you. America is not intimidated by you."
