North Las Vegas, NV — Tonight, State Senator Ruben Kihuen released the following statement on being elected to Nevada’s 4th Congressional District:
“I am humbled by this opportunity to serve the people of the 4th District. When my family came to America 28 years ago with nothing, we never imagined the day where I would be elected to the United States House of Representatives. In January I’ll go to Washington to work to improve this country for the people I’ve been elected to represent.
“Congress is broken. For too long we’ve seen partisan differences threaten the ability of working class people to achieve the American Dream. We, like all Americans, dream of a good education, a good-paying job, to own our own car, our own home, that our kids will breathe clean air and grow up on safe streets.
“I give you my word that I will work tirelessly for all of you — Democrat, Republican and independent, rural and urban — to fight for the American Dream. We must ensure that all of the opportunities that were available to me will be there for the next generation and generations to come. Thank you for placing your trust in me by sending me to Congress.”
