Posted on 03/16/2018 10:14:50 AM PDT by GIdget2004
Republican Danny Tarkanian has reportedly agreed to drop his primary against Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) and instead run for the House after getting a public shove from President Trump on Fridayto do so, boosting Hellers chances of reelection in the Democratic-leaning state.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that Tarkanian has decided on another House run (hes lost two previous bids for the House and six different campaigns in the state) almost immediately after Trump tweeted that he should do so and leave Heller alone.

I wish Heller would be fired.
I’m with ya, Donald, but I think this is the wrong call.
Tarkanian’s statement says Trump reached out to him on Wednesday, asking him not to run against Heller, and to switch to the House race.
Well, to be fair, the House is far more important this year.
I think what happened in Alabama and what COULD happen in Az. had a lot to do with it. Trump needs a win. He may very well not get it but if it makes the rats work harder perhaps we can trade it for one of the many red state seats. Throw in Utah and he’s got more to worry about.
Any relation to the basketball coach?
I’m gonna trust him on this. He didn’t like Saccone and he didn’t like the Alabama guy and he was proven right on both of them.
Now I wish President Trump would call his pal Sheriff Joe and tell him to stay on the porch.
Hell, if Kasich would run against Sherrod Brown Trump would do cartwheels. Another missed opportunity now that Mandel is out. And the GOP wants us to send in our money.
I hate Heller, but Danny has many loose strings.
Talk loses more than Judge Moore.
Keeping senate majority insures judicial appointments. Crucial.
When you consider pubbie aszholes, think mcpain, collins, rubio, paul, turtle, cornhole, the Wisconsin guy with the pre-embalmed lips, not to mention flaker and corkinhisasz.
Heller s*cks...but he spits it out, most of the time...maybe.
Heller voted for Rubio’s amnesty.
He really needs to be booted from office before he does it again.
Trump’s endorsements of Swamp Monsters have to be ignored.
Why did Mandel drop out?
What does this do for Kelly Ward? McSally the RINO is more likely to beat the pretty good Democrat candidate for Flake’s seat. Ward can hope McCain croaks and gets the appointment. The better candidate would be the sportscaster/Newsmax fella that lost to McLame in 2010. What’s his name?
Mandell’s wife had health issues-undisclosed.
I know who you are talking about but blanking on his name as well...very gelled hair right? I think he had some scandal plaguing him though.
