NV Dems Response to Koch Brother’s $700,000 Attempt to Prop Up Congressman Heck’s Campaign

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Zukowski released the following statement on reports that a Koch Brothers-funded group will spend $700,000 on television ads for Congressman Heck:

After Congressman Heck once again did the Koch Brothers’ bidding by refusing to call on the Senate to do its job and take up the vacancy on the Supreme Court, it isn’t surprising they would spend over half a million dollars propping up his campaign. After all, whether it’s supporting the privatization of Social Security, voting to turn Medicare over to private insurance companies, or opposing an increase in the minimum wage, Congressman Heck has spent his half a decade in Washington voting with the Koch Brothers and special interests at every turn.
