NV Dems Statement on Congressman Heck Skipping the Caucuses to Return to Adoptive Hometown of Washington

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Zukowski released the following statement following reports Congressman Heck is skipping the Nevada caucuses to return to his adoptive hometown of Washington:

While we understand Congressman Heck is struggling to choose between his fellow anti-immigrant ideological soul mates Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, his excuse about ‘doing his job’ is laughable.  For Congressman Heck, ‘doing his job’ is voting to shut down the federal government while accepting his own pay, voting three times against equal pay for equal work, voting dozens of times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and opposing comprehensive immigration reform. Clearly, what Congressman Heck considers ‘doing his job’ isn’t working for Nevada families.”
