ROSEN STATEMENT: Is Dean Heller Running for Re-Election or Auditioning for a Job in the Trump Administration?

Heller to Trump: “I think everything you touch turns to gold”

President Trump returned to Nevada today to continue rewarding Sen. Dean Heller for breaking his promise to protect Nevadans’ health care and agreeing to “fall in line” with Trump’s agenda. Heller continued cozying up to President Trump, even saying, “I think everything you touch turns to gold.” The event marked Trump’s third visit to Nevada in 2018 as part of a desperate attempt to rescue Heller’s faltering re-election campaign and keep his loyal rubber stamp in the Senate.

Nevada Congresswoman and candidate for U.S. Senate Jacky Rosen released the following statement responding to President Trump’s latest visit to Nevada:

“Is Dean Heller running for re-election or auditioning for a job in the Trump Administration next year? Our state deserves a Senator who will be an independent voice, a bipartisan problem solver, and a check on the White House, not a rubber stamp who thinks everything the President touches turns to gold. Instead of standing up for hardworking Nevada families, Dean Heller has been voting for a reckless partisan agenda in Washington to slash protections for pre-existing conditions, defund Planned Parenthood, block bipartisan immigration reform, and confirm unacceptable Cabinet nominees like Betsy DeVos. After fleeing from reporters after our debate, it’s clear that Senator Heller has nothing to show for his decade in Washington and can’t defend his record of broken promises.”
