AUDIO: Heller Says Meeting Nevadans Is A Chore (That He's Scared To Do Alone)

Apr 13, 2017

Talking to prospective special interest donors behind closed doors, Senator Dean Heller yesterday made it very clear how little he respects the Nevadans who elected him.

At a paid-admission luncheon, Heller dismissed the importance of meeting with his constituents — something he hasn’t done at a public event for 3 months, 9 days — and going on 22 hours. To laughter, Heller confessed to the business leaders that he’s finally decided to meet voters face to face with a town hall next Monday, quipping that it’s just “one of the boxes you have to check.”

Heller explained why he’s teaming up with his buddy Rep. Mark Amodei: “Because [Amodei] will do all the talking.”

American Bridge President Jessica Mackler made the following statement:“Heller is either full-on scared to face the people who elected him, or he’s completely disinterested in their concerns. It’s hard to say which is worse, and there’s a good chance both are true. Nevadans deserve a Senator who sees meeting his or her constituents as a privilege — not another “box” to be checked — and Dean Heller doesn’t fit the bill.”
