The 2020 election season is in full swing, and here at FFL we’re excited to see that there has been a surge in Republican women running for public office. We love to celebrate conservative women in all capacities and give our readers a look at what they stand for.

The filing date for the congressional races for 2020 in Nevada recently passed. Nevada will hold its primaries on June 9th, 2020 and will host the general election on November 3, 2020.

Citlaly Latinos-Elias (NV-01)

If she wins the GOP primary, she will be running to represent Congressional District 1 and unseat incumbent Democrat Rep. Dina Titus. Larios-Elias states on her Instagram that “there is a red wave coming!” On the issues, she endorses the repeal of Obamacare; states that we should make no new gun laws rather enforce the current laws; and says that the federal government should be kept out of the classrooms with regard to education. She is pro-life sharing, “Life is a precious gift given by Almighty God and we have a solemn responsibility to protect the unborn.” 

Mindy Robinson (NV-03)

Mindy Robinson is running for the CD-03. Robinson is a “political commentator, vocal conservative actress, and a host of a patriotic online show.” She moved from California to the Las Vegas valley 6 years ago, to escape the “high taxes, the unconstitutional gun laws, the preferential treatment of criminals over citizens, their revolving door of criminal justice… and of course, the rampant voter fraud that allowed all of that to happen in the first place.” She supports strict Voter ID laws, universal concealed carry, and pro-border control.

Catherine Prato (NV-04)

Catherine Prato brands herself as “Nurse Prato” on her website, and until recently, she was the Director of Nursing Education for the Nevada State Board of Nursing. She states that she “is willing to sign the Taxpayer’s Protection Pledge”. When it comes to healthcare, she wants to “put an end to the stigmas surrounding mental health issues and start solving the problem instead of treating the symptoms.” She believes when it comes to constituent services, that she should do what nurses do and “listen first, then act.” 

Randi Reed (NV-04)

Randi Reed shares that she is “an award-winning small business owner, involved parent, advocate, non-profit supporter and member of a community that needs a voice,” and that “Nevada values are my values: Hard work, fair play, service to our community and love of country.” While she does not have an issues section on her website, there are some threats listed on her homepage: the threat of “a rising tide of anti-Semitism, both socially and politically,” and the “threats of higher taxes and over regulation that put job creation and the booming economy in jeopardy.” 

Lisa Song Sutton (NV-04)

Sutton is “a businesswoman, entrepreneur, outspoken advocate for women, and Miss Nevada United States 2014,” per her website. She has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, and if elected, would advocate for the passing of a U.S. Balanced Budget Amendment. She says that the Constitution “wasn’t adopted to place limits on us as individuals, but rather to protect individuals from the heavy hand of government.” 

Rebecca Wood (NV-04) 

Wood is “a life-long Republican who has called Las Vegas home for 30 years,” as she writes on her website. The issues prioritized on her campaign site include the 2nd Amendment, taxes, immigration and border security, healthcare, the sanctity of life, and religious liberty. On the 2nd Amendment, she states, “once we begin to remove gun rights from our citizens, we begin the process of losing our free society.”
