Mark Amodei Reminds Us of Congressman Heck’s Failed Leadership and Unwavering Devotion to Washington Dysfunction

Las Vegas, NV – Career politician and lobbyist Mark Amodei isn’t often right, but you know what they say about broken clocks…The Nevada Appeal reported that Amodei doubled down on calling out Republicans like Congressman Heck and Sharron Angle who support Washington Republicans’ failure to do their jobs and give President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee a hearing. Congressman Amodei said, “Why wouldn’t you give this person a hearing and vote next week?” Our thoughts exactly.

Amodei’s straight talk stands in stark contrast to Congressman Heck. After hiding behind Washington-speak to avoid taking a position on this issue, Congressman Heck finally joined his primary opponent Sharron Angle in supporting Senate Republicans’ plan to go a year without doing their jobs.

Mark Amodei just did what Congressman Heck is incapable of – breaking with his Party and call on Senate Republicans to do their job,” said Sarah Zukowski, spokesperson for the Nevada State Democratic Party. “It is sadly no surprise that Congressman Heck, who votes with his Party 90% of the time, would support Washington Republicans’ failure to do their jobs and give President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee a fair hearing. Nevadans deserve a Senator who will do what is in their best interest, not a politician like Congressman Heck who blindly follows the orders of his Party’s bosses in Washington.
