Congressman Heck Still Silent on Donald Trump Muslim Comments

Las Vegas, NV – We guess he’s still reading that NRSC memo… It’s been nearly 24 hours since GOP Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s call for a ban on all Muslim travel to the United States, and ethically-challenged Congressman Heck is still silent.  While numerous Republican state party chairs and most of the GOP presidential field have condemned Trump’s comments, there’s been radio silence from Congressman Heck.

“Considering he rushed to embrace Donald Trump’s immigration proposal to repeal birthright citizenship, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that Congressman Heck still hasn’t condemned Trump’s plan to ban all Muslim travel to the United States,” said Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Regardless, Congressman Heck’s silence on Trump’s discriminatory and irresponsible proposal is downright shameful.”
