WATCH: Danny on Dean

#TBT! Before Dean Heller and Danny Tarkanian take the stage with President Trump tonight in Las Vegas, we thought we’d take a walk down memory lane.

We’re sure tonight will be all about unity, but just one short year ago, with Tarkanian and Heller locked in a bitter Senate primary fight, they weren’t what we’d call allies.

Here’s a round up of Tarkanian’s greatest hits against Heller, to start the night off on the right — or, at least, the honest — foot:

Tarkanian’s Scorched Earth Anti-Heller Campaign Continues

Danny Tarkanian is continuing his scorched earth interview series, this time on Nevada’s Heidi Harris Show. Tarkanian blasts the Washington establishment for forcing him out of the race and says that “they are just underestimating the outrage people have in Nevada for Heller” — because Heller has disappointed his base. Tarkanian’s far-right base will “never vote for Heller even though they’re strong Republicans.” The host backs up Tarkanian, saying “I have certainly seen that…Boy people just don’t want to vote for him.”

After Dean Heller’s dismal fundraising quarter, in which he was lapped by his Democratic opponent, and with polls showing him in deep trouble, Heller’s Washington, D.C. insider friends are attempting to come to the rescue.

They’re so terrified that Heller could lose that they’re getting publicly involved in an intra-party primary, with Leader Mitch McConnell’s super PAC today releasing a new ad to prop up Heller and hurt his Republican rival Danny Tarkanian.

“After his years of broken promises and putting politics ahead of the people he’s supposed to represent, Dean Heller is in huge trouble and his Republican establishment friends know it,” said American Bridge spokesperson Allison Teixeira Sulier. “Nevadans realize they can’t trust spineless Dean Heller as far as they can throw him and they won’t forget it– no matter how much money Mitch McConnell spends trying to bail him out.”
