Dear Fellow Nevadan, When news broke earlier this month that the Obama Administration used an unmarked cargo plane to transfer pallets loaded with $400 million worth of foreign currencies to Iran on the same day that four American hostages were released by the regime, the American people saw the transaction for what it was: a ransom payment.

No amount of semantic gymnastics can change the fact that our government, irrespective of strong protests from senior officials at the Department of Justice, made a cash-for-prisoners exchange with the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.

We’ve learned this week, contrary to official statements, that the Administration intentionally timed the money exchange to coincide with the release of our fellow citizens from unlawful imprisonment. This is the textbook definition of paying ransom.

 As details continue to unfold, what is clear is that the Administration has chosen to double down on its capitulation to Iran a year after its disastrous nuclear deal with the regime.

After voting to further sanction Iran and to prevent the nuclear deal from being implemented, I will continue to work with my colleagues to hold the Administration accountable and prevent Iran from threatening the United States or our ally Israel. Should I have the opportunity to vote on legislation concerning this transaction with Iran, I will be sure to keep you informed.
Serving you,
Cresent Hardy

Aerospace Day in District Four

This past weekend, I hosted Aerospace Day at Bridger Middle School and brought together NASA, the Air Force Association, Arcata, Lockheed Martin and other aerospace innovators to show our students what opportunities are available to them through STEM education.
I also announced the 2016 Congressional App Challenge open to students living in Nevada’s Fourth District. Click here for details on how to enter.

Celebrating the Queen of Thailand

I had a wonderful time celebrating the Queen of Thailand’s birthday this week. Thank you to the Thai American Association of Las Vegas for allowing me to be a part of this incredible event where I got to experience Thailand’s beautiful culture first-hand. 

Working Together to Serve Our Community

Helping to meet the needs of our community is one of my top priorities. I was glad to spend time with Wendell Williams, a former Nevada Assemblyman and the President of the Martin Luther King Jr. Committee to discuss ways we could work together to better serve our families and our great state.
