    National and Nevada Latino leaders recognize Dr. Joe Heck is the best choice for U.S. Senate in Nevada

    As Hispanic Heritage Month wraps up this week, national and Nevada Latino leaders endorsed Dr. Joe Heck for the U.S. Senate over Harry Reid’s handpicked candidate, Catherine Cortez Masto.

    Dr. Heck’s commitment to Nevada’s diverse communities is evident by his efforts to fix our broken immigration system, increase funding for career and technical education, make higher education more accessible and affordable, and working across the aisle to get things done for Nevada.

    “I am honored by the support from Latino leaders here at home in Nevada and across the nation,” said Dr. Joe Heck. “Hispanics are an integral part of the American family, their contributions have enriched our culture, and their commitment to bettering America is a commitment I share. In the U.S. Senate, I will continue to fight for better schools, access to health care, more good-paying full-time jobs, and safe communities for all Nevadans.”

    The list of Latino leaders endorsing Dr. Joe Heck follows an endorsement from the national Hispanic Business Roundtable Institute (HBRI) headed by the former administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration Hector Barreto, as well as Nevada’s Asian American Group’s endorsement over Cortez Masto.

    “Dr. Heck has earned the support of HBRI because he shares our vision – for the Hispanic community to consistently experience the best this nation has to offer, not just today but well into the future through economic and educational opportunities as well as quality, affordable healthcare,” said Hector Barreto.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.- The President of the Hispanic Business Roundtable Institute (HBRI), Hector Barreto, today announced the organization’s endorsement of Congressional and Senatorial candidates for the 2016 election cycle.

    “The current economic and political environment often makes me wonder— is this the best of times or worst of times for the Hispanic community?” business leader and former U.S. Small Business Administrator, Barreto asked. “The candidates that have earned the support of HBRI share a vision— they want the Hispanic community to consistently experience the best of times, not just today, but well into the future.”

    HBRI endorses candidates that are proven allies of small business, support a strong free enterprise and show interest in advancing economic growth and job creation through sensible and less intrusive legislation.

    The Hispanic Business Roundtable Institute is proud to endorse the following Congressional and Senatorial candidates for the 2016 election cycle:

    “Each of the individuals we are endorsing appreciates the unique opportunities that are available to all Americans – and to Latinos in particular – through small-business ownership,” Barreto explained. “Each of them understands that government doesn’t create jobs, but it does create an environment that can be either friendly or hostile to the small businesses that do create the majority of net new jobs in this country. We look forward to working with these government leaders who share the goals and values of HBRI.”
