As the sparring continues in Republican Sen. Dean Heller’s primary battle, it’s increasingly clear that Heller is counting on Mitch McConnell’s Super PAC to save the day in his efforts to beat back GOP primary challenger Danny Tarkanian. Today, McConnell’s super PAC announced their own new digital ad to help drag Heller across the finish line.
Earlier this week, Heller released “anemic” fourth-quarter fundraising numbers and launched an expensive new 60-second TV attack ad of his own against Tarkanian.
Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Abel released the following statement:
“Mitch McConnell knows he can always count on Dean Heller to be a spineless vote for his toxic Republican agenda in Congress, even when it’s at the expense of Nevada families. This early outside spending from McConnell’s Super PAC proves they intend to make good on their promise to spend millions in 2018 to protect their Republican rubber stamp in the Senate.”
