Conservative Talk Radio Hosts Mock Heller’s “Opportunistic” Trump Embrace

This weekend on KKFT 99.1 FM in Reno, conservative talk radio hosts mocked establishment Republican Senator Dean Heller for his “opportunistic” embrace of President Trump now that he has a Trump-inspired primary challenger in conservative businessman Danny Tarkanian. One host even came up with some new nicknames: “Senator Swamp Dweller Heller” and “Dean I’ll saying anything to get re-elected Heller.” Listen to the clip here.

Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Abel released the following statement:

“Senator Heller has managed the impressive feat of uniting Democrats, independents and his own party’s base against his re-election campaign. Conservative talk radio hosts in Nevada don’t trust Dean Heller for the same reasons no one else does: he’s a self-serving career politician who has no core values and no credibility. Whether it’s on Trump or health care, Nevadans across party lines can see right through Heller’s political gymnastics.”
