This morning, Danny Tarkanian announced that he will challenge Sen. Dean Heller in the Republican Senate primary in Nevada, making a tough race even tougher for the flip-flopping senator.
“Dean Heller is unmistakably a career politician trying desperately to hang on to power by constantly changing his stance on health care, and even Nevada Republicans are sick of his pandering,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler. “Heller sold out Nevadans’ health care because the only person he serves is himself. Now, he’s being rewarded with a primary challenger who is just as outside the mainstream as he is and will make this a nasty, costly campaign. Republicans just saw their path to holding on to his seat become even narrower.”
