Sen. Heller reveals: I voted for Trump

Nevada Sen. Dean Heller (R) revealed to a reporter on Monday that he voted for President Trump last November, ending nine months of evasiveness on whether he voted for his party’s presidential nominee.

Heller told The Nevada Independent in a statement that he voted for Trump, despite his often vocal criticism of the GOP president.

“Yes, I voted for Donald Trump,” Heller texted a reporter for the news outlet.

Hillary Clinton narrowly won the state in November, winning 47.9 percent of the vote compared to Trump’s 45.5 percent. Because his state went for Clinton, Heller is seen as the most vulnerable GOP senator up for reelection in 2018.

{mosads}Heller is facing a primary challenge from Danny Tarkanian, a wealthy businessman and frequent candidate. Tarkanian is running on his support for Trump’s agenda, including repealing ObamaCare.
