    Harry Reid may no longer lead Senate Democrats in Washington, but the political machine he built in Nevada has Republicans on the run. Democrats romped up and down the state in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, ousting Republican Sen. Dean Heller, winning races for governor and lieutenant governor, and expanding their state legislative majorities. The shellacking was 15 years in the making, the culmination of a long-term plan to shift a battleground into the Democratic column. Democrats elsewhere will work to replicate Nevada for years to come. Republicans were humbled. “These things can change, but right now Nevada is a...

    Gangsta: Sen. Lindsey Graham has been on a tear lately, having been so offended by his Democratic colleagues’ treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh he no longer feels the need to hold back his true feelings, apparently. During an appearance in Las Vegas for GOP incumbent Sen. Dean Heller, who’s locked in a tight race, the South Carolina Republican was clear about how he views those on the “radical Left.”

    The Hill ^ | October 9, 2018
    Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) holds a slim but statistically insignificant lead over Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) in the Nevada Senate race with a month left until Election Day, a poll released Tuesday found. An NBC News/Marist poll shows Heller leading 46-44 percent among likely voters. The difference falls within the poll's margin of error of 5.5 points. Heller is considered one of the most vulnerable Republican senators up for reelection next month. The poll found that independents favor Heller, 42-39 percent. The incumbent is also the preferred candidate among likely male voters by a 16-point margin. Rosen holds an 11-point...

The freshman congresswoman ended Sept. 30 with $2.6 million on hand, according to fundraising numbers provided first to Roll Call. Her campaign noted that more than 95 percent of contributions have been donations of $100 or less with an average contribution of $54.

    President Donald Trump heads to Nevada, where the Affordable Care Act is perhaps the most important issue in a pivotal Senate race. GOP Sen. Dean Heller, who voted for a bill to repeal parts of Obamacare after pledging to oppose an earlier version, is facing a tough re-election bid against Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen. Nevada saw a massive decrease in its uninsured rate after it expanded Medicaid under the health care law. As he pushed Senate Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act last year, President Donald Trump zeroed in on Sen. Dean Heller. When the president had lunch with...

    the Hill ^ | 11/07/18 | JORDAIN CARNEY
    The Senate on Wednesday took a symbolic shot at President Trump’s trade policy amid anxiety on Capitol Hill over his tariff strategy. Senators voted 88-11 to instruct lawmakers hashing out a deal on a government funding bill to include language “providing a role for Congress” on tariffs implemented for national security reasons, known as Section 232 of the trade laws. The vote is nonbinding, meaning lawmakers don’t have to add trade language into the funding bill. But the vote margin, with more senators supporting it than the amount needed to override a veto, underscores the depth of concern on Capitol...

    They call themselves Main Street Republicans, moderates consigned to the back alleys of politics by their own party. But despite a severe bruising in the fall election, this minority within a minority finds itself with new avenues to explore, including working more closely with Democrats. The Republican Main Street Partnership, a leading voice of GOP moderates in Congress, lost seven of its 48 House members to Democratic challengers in the November election. Two other senior members, Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, R-N.Y., and Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., are retiring. The group also saw Sen. Lincoln Chafee, R-R.I., one of its eight Senate members...

    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 Heller’s chances of reelection in the Democratic-leaning state. The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that Tarkanian has decided on another House run (he’s 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.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) have introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, which would move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and therefore recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital city. Currently, the U.S. Embassy is located in Tel Aviv. In a statement, Sen. Cruz said that it was "finally time" to move the embassy. “Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided capital of Israel,” Sen. Cruz said. “Unfortunately, the Obama administration's vendetta against the Jewish state has been so vicious that to even utter this simple truth - let alone the reality...

    Nevada Sen. Dean Heller is testing the political perils of opposing President Trump from inside his own party, with the entrance into the 2018 Republican primary Tuesday of Danny Tarkanian. Tarkanian, a five-time failed candidate for public office, is wrapping himself in the mantle of Trump, vowing to be an enthusiastic, loyal soldier for the president in the Senate, where Heller tends to vote with the White House, though not blindly and at times reluctantly. "I am a conservative Republican who supports the policies of President Trump to repeal Obamacare and end illegal immigration," Tarkanian said in a statement. "I...

    Perennial candidate Danny Tarkanian will challenge Sen. Dean Heller in Nevada's 2018 GOP primary, in the hopes of capitalizing on the incumbent's public clashes with President Trump. Tarkanian issued a statement Tuesday aligning himself with Trump and promising to stick with the president if he is elected next year. "I am a conservative Republican who supports the policies of President Trump to repeal Obamacare and end illegal immigration. I will continue to support President Trump's policies that have led to a 20 percent increase in the stock market in just six months. I will join Senator Lee, Senator Cruz, and...

    Root for America ^ | June 27, 2017 | Wayne Root
    Dean Heller has earned a new nickname. He should forever more be known as “One & Done Dean.” It’s amazing that any politician could be this (choose one): A) ignorant, B) clueless, C) self-destructive, or D) All three. Because there’s no question about it- U.S. Senator Dean Heller has just chosen to destroy his own political career. He’s a one term Senator. He’s “One & Done.” Isn’t politics about making your constituents lives better? Obamacare has wrecked healthcare…wrecked the economy…killed middle class jobs…exploded the welfare state…bankrupted small business and the middle class with massive premium increases…bankrupted Obamacare exchanges from coast...

    Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant revival tour might cause headaches for down-ballot Republicans who are already trying to put space between themselves and the divisive party front-runner. (SNIP) Three Senate Republicans from Latino-heavy states, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Dean Heller of Nevada and Jeff Flake of Arizona, are all well-practiced in the dance of softening tough-talk on immigration enforcement to avoid alienating voters.

    And now we've closed the circle. And now we're back at why Donald Trump is in the race and why Donald Trump is running away with it. You can get as deep or as shallow in the analysis as you want. But it's about a last chance, a last-gasp effort at preserving the culture that developed after the founding of this country. It's no more complicated than that, folks. The country's under siege from all quarters, and recently the Democrat Party has joined those who have put the country under siege. Now, in this instance I'm not even talking about...

"Lawmakers are flocking to support Marco Rubio's White House campaign after former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush dropped out of the GOP race on Saturday. A slew of Republicans in Congress who previously backed Bush are moving to support Rubio as he battles GOP rivals Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Rubio's campaign announced ahead of Tuesday's caucus in Nevada that Sen. Dean Heller (Nev.) and Rep. Mark Amodei (Nev.) would be backing his campaign." And some...

    Two days before the Nevada caucuses, Senator Dean Heller (R.,NV) has thrown his weight behind Marco Rubio for president. Heller, previously a Jeb Bush supporter, announced his endorsement this morning on Twitter. The move comes mere hours after Bush's exit from the race on Saturday evening. Marco Rubio "is the next generation of conservative leadership, and I am proud to offer my full support," Heller tweeted. "Marco understands Nevada, he grew up here -- I look forward to campaigning with him today," he added. Heller's imprimatur could help Rubio thread the needle with crucial pockets of the Silver State electorate....
