American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp released the following statement on Trump’s attempt to bail out Dean Heller:
“You know things are dire when you look to Donald Trump for help in your race, but that’s where Dean Heller finds himself now. Unfortunately for Heller, with or without a primary opponent, he’s still a spineless politician who has sold out Nevadans time and again. Voters aren’t going to forget that come November.”
Last year, Heller went back on his promise to Nevadans to protect the Medicaid expansion hundreds of thousands depend on for their health care, and voted, at Donald Trump’s behest, to repeal the Affordable Care Act. When that bill failed, he also sponsored another version of ACA repeal that was even worse.
