AUDIO: Dean Heller Takes a Beating from Conservative Talk Radio in Nevada

Las Vegas, NV – Conservative talk radio hosts and callers across Nevada don’t have anything nice to say this week about Republican Senator Dean Heller after his back-and-forth equivocating on Planned Parenthood prompted a right-wing revolt. Ultimately, Senator Heller’s office “clarified” that his position never changed at all, he just lied to the town hall – so Heller still opposes federal funding for Planned Parenthood and his office even touted his “long record that reflects his position.”


KXNT host Alan Stock summed it up best: “What Heller does is he comes out for one position, but he takes another position to try to mitigate it… so he like takes two positions at the same time.”

In case you missed the conservative backlash against Senator Heller trying to mislead voters about his support for defunding Planned Parenthood:

  • Erick Erickson: “Dean Heller must be defeated by either a better Republican or a Democrat.”
  • Conservative Review: “GOP Sen. Dean Heller’s latest pro-life flip is the rotten cherry on top of his craptastic voting record.”
  • Concerned Women for America president Penny Nance: “Disappointed doesn’t even begin to cover the reaction our members in Nevada will have when we inform them of Heller’s new position.”
  • Family Research Council president Tony Perkins: “Senator Heller’s waffling over federal funding for Planned Parenthood should be completely unacceptable to a majority of the voters in Nevada who elected him based in part on his pro-life promises.”
