Reno Radio Coverage of Congressman Heck’s Social Security Privatization Tour

Listen to the radio coverage

Reno, NV – Day 3 of Congressman Heck’s Social Security privatization tour in Northern Nevada and Heck’s previous statements and positions continue to haunt him.  After literally inducing groans from television anchors yesterday morning over his positions on Social Security, Congressman Heck received another blow from Reno radio coverage of his tour.  Reno radio station KOH – which carries the shows of conservative radio commentators Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, and Mark Levin, among others – ran a brutal news segment on Heck’s Social Security privatization proposal and his past comments calling Social Security a “pyramid scheme” that “isn’t working.”

Further embarrassing his inaugural campaign tour in Northern Nevada, Congressman Heck got called out yesterday by the political reporter for the Reno Gazette-Journal, Ray Hagar, for initially excluding Hagar from his campaign’s press list.
