Terrified D.C. Republicans Trying to Rescue Dean Heller

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.”
