Tarka­nian to chal­lenge Heller in Ne­vada

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

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.”
