U.S. Senate Candidate Deborah Ross Will Fight for N.C. Families

Deborah Ross, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat in North Carolina against Republican Richard Burr, understands all too well that the best way to create new jobs for working families is by rebuilding the state’s crumbling bridges and roads, especially after the havoc wreaked by Hurricane Matthew.

Celia's Story of Working for Donald Trump

We can assume that Donald Trump isn't spending much time preparing for tomorrow's debate. One thing we know he won't be doing instead of debate prep is taking the time to help out the working people who make Vegas work. He says he's for all workers. But his record shows that he certainly isn't for those who work at his hotel, like Celia. Immigrants like Celia move to Las Vegas for a better life. Trump refuses to recognize this. Watch her tell her story in this video.
