Heller was appointed to replace former Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) last year and has touted his Senate votes that broke with Republican ranks.

Heller and Berkley are fighting in a close race that could determine which party controls the Senate.

The Sun reported that despite Heller admitting his need for Democratic voters’ support, he hasn’t written off a victory in Nevada for the GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

“I think it’s going to be real close, but I think they can do it,” Heller said shortly after GOP running mate Paul Ryan delivered his final campaign speech in Reno. “I just chatted with Congressman Ryan, and he said it will be more difficult to win Nevada than Ohio but that they think they can win both.”
