As Senator Dean Heller grows increasingly unpopular within his own party, Nevada GOP Chair Michael McDonald is slated to fundraise for his pro-Trump primary opponent, Danny Tarkanian, later this month. Senator Heller is already dumping thousands of dollars just to try to make it to the general election.
Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Abel released the following statement:
“From caving on health care to bragging about writing the GOP’s harmful tax bill, Senator Heller is clearly panicking about his primary against pro-Trump businessman Danny Tarkanian. While Senator Heller clings to Mitch McConnell and D.C. special interests to prop up his struggling campaign, he is quickly losing support at home. It is a sad and embarrassing referendum on Heller’s chances that even the chairman of the Nevada GOP is helping an incumbent Senator’s opponent raise money.”
