Rosen Announces Statewide Virtual Tour, Will Virtually Visit All 17 Nevada Counties Over 7-Day Period

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) announced that she will embark upon a state-wide virtual tour. In order to stay in touch with and hear from Nevadans during the COVID-19 pandemic, Senator Rosen will attend virtual meetings and roundtable discussions with various Nevada groups and organizations over a 7-day period in each of Nevada’s 17 counties.

As we’ve worked to combat the coronavirus over the past several months, Nevadans have faced incredible challenges and shown great resilience and resolve, said Senator Rosen. I felt it was critical to hear the first-hand experience of Nevadans from all corners of the Silver State so Congress can be a better partner as we continue the fight against COVID-19. I am proud to represent all Nevadans, and I am looking forward to the chance to hear from folks all across our great state.
