The former Nevada State Treasurer Kate Marshall on Wednesday, September 13th, announced that he will be running for the Nevada lieutenant governor election.

Marshall was elected Nevada’s state treasurer dating way back in 2006 and re-elected in 2010. Prior to her stint as the state treasurer, she served as senior deputy attorney general, creating Nevada’s Antitrust Legal Division under Attorney General Frankie Sue del Papa stretching from 1997 to 2010.

Marshall’s announcement lists endorsements from several state Democratic leaders including former United States Senator Harry Reid, current U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada and Congressional Representatives Dina Titus and Jacky Rosen.

Additionally, the state Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford and Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson also pronounce their endorsement to Marshall.

“I’ve spent my career in public service putting the interests of Nevadans first,” Kate Marshall said in a news statement.

“During my time as State Treasurer, I set political posturing and gamesmanship aside, working with both parties to get the results Nevadans depend on. Working together we made our state government more transparent, we found innovative ways to diversify our state’s economy and increased educational opportunities for all of Nevada’s students while saving taxpayers millions of dollars.”

The former two-term state state treasurer Marshall, who announced her Nevada lieutenant governor candidacy, will be running up against Roberson, leader of the Nevada Senate Republicans, who Michael announced his bid for the state lieutenant governor last month.

The winner between Chip Evans — who also announced his bid to become the next Nevada lieutenant governor on Wednesday — and Marshall would likely compete against Michael Roberson, the outspoken Nevada State Senate Republican leader who had previously announced that he’s candidacy for the position.

In an ambush interview with the Centrio News, Marshall stated that she considers the job as a massive opportunity to make sure “the economy works for all the people in Nevada.”

With that being said, bringing more high-paying jobs to Nevada, it means establishing affordable education and health care and “making sure the money that goes to government is being used for things that then serve you as the people of Nevada.”

Marshall also ran for the State’s second Congressional District, which blankets the northern half of the Nevada, during a special election back in 2011, but has been defeated to Republican Mark Amodei by 23 percent. Moreover, she also ran for secretary of Nevada back in 2014, but failed to win against Barbara Cegavske by 4 points in an campaign that saw Republicans sweep the Nevada’s constitutional offices.

Marshall owns and operates a legal consulting business in Reno and serves on the Board of the United Way of Northern Nevada. She’s also teaching part-time at the University of Nevada, Reno.
