After failing to hold a single town hall for months, Senator Dean Heller faced his constituents for the first time at a town hall in Reno. After his 100% record of voting for Trump’s dangerous agenda in the U.S. Senate
, Nevadans had a lot of questions for their Senator — and Heller didn’t have a single good answer.
Statement by American Bridge President Jessica Mackler:
“After hiding from his constituents for months, Senator Dean Heller caved to the pressure and held a town hall. But Heller is so completely unable to defend his record, he lied and lied for two hours, even going so far as to pretend to support Planned Parenthood two weeks after voting to block Title X funding for Planned Parenthood. When he couldn’t come up with a lie fast enough, Heller let his buddy and security blanket Rep. Mark Amodei answer the questions.”
“Last week, Heller dismissed town halls as ‘just a box you have to check.’ After Heller’s lying and lazy performance today, Nevadans know exactly how little he looks out for them — and they will hold him accountable next November.”
