Tarkanian to challenge Heller in Nevada
Sen. Dean Heller, Nevada Republican, received a primary challenger Tuesday as Danny Tarkanian said he’d enter the 2018 midterm race.
“I’m very excited I’m going to announce to run for the United States Senate here in Nevada against Dean Heller,” he said on Fox News.
Mr. Tarkanian has run for both state and federal offices dating back to 2004 but never won — most recently losing last year to Rep. Jacky Rosen in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District.
Ms. Rosen has announced that she will seek the Democratic nomination for the Senate seat.
But Mr. Tarkanian said Mr. Heller “has broken one promise after another to the people of Nevada.”
