Dean Heller Now Has A Republican Challenger For His Seat In 2018

"I have so many people that are contacting me over the past couple months saying 'You gotta run against Dean Heller.' They understand, as I do, that we're never going to make America great again unless we have senators in office that fully support President Trump and his America first agenda", Tarkanian said Tuesday. Tarkanian, the son of the late University of Nevada Las Vegas basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, has mounted several unsuccessful bids over more than a decade, including a 2010 Senate campaign.

Rep. Jacky Rosen, D-Nev., has announced as a Democrat for the seat. In an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, Tarkanian announced that he is mounting a run for the Senate, casting his decision as an opportunity to oust a lawmaker that has had a rocky relationship with President Trump.

Tarkanian calls himself a conservative Republican who supports the policies of President Donald Trump to repeal Obamacare and end illegal immigration. Heller came out strongly against the GOP bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), in a press conference the day after it was released. The Nevada Republican said he plans to campaign on the promise of supporting Trump's agenda, which he claims Heller hasn't done.

Tribal leader Soni Sori also visited the school a couple of days back but the warden did not allow her to enter the school. The children told their principal, and a case was registered under Section 354 IPC and POCSO.

A pro-Trump PAC initially created ads to attack Heller for his opposition to the bill, a move that drew the ire of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who asked the White House to get the ads pulled.

Tarkanian's announcement came on a morning when Trump retweeted clips or stories from "Fox & Friends" three times. But even as Tarkanian looks for backing from the president, he will likely face resistance from Republican congressional leadership.
