“I congratulate Dean Heller on winning the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. There is a clear difference in this race. Dean is a common-sense leader who believes we need to focus on pro-growth, pro-jobs policies for the Silver State. In contrast, his opponent was handpicked by Harry Reid, is mired in an ethics scandal and believes we should focus on growing government in Washington, instead of jobs in Nevada. It’s time we get Nevada and our country working again and we can do that by keeping Dean Heller in the U.S. Senate.” – U.S. Senator John Cornyn, NRSC Chairman
While we rarely agree with Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid, we do agree with his assessment that Shelley Berkley’s “flamboyant Vegas-centric personality” will cause hemorrhaging in pivotal Washoe County.
Additionally, throughout her 14-year career in the House of Representatives, Shelley Berkley has become a backbench Representative who follows Nancy Pelosi’s orders and rubberstamps President Barack Obama’s failed economic agenda into law.
Meanwhile, the always likeable Dean Heller has proven that he’s beholden to no one and has always fought tirelessly for the people of Nevada.
