Support Democrat Jacky Rosen’s campaign to unseat Nevada Senator Dean Heller in 2018.
Heller screwed up big-time when he succumbed to pressure to vote in favor of Trumpcare 2.0. He is feeling the heat, as he should. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to stop him from signing on to cosponsor Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham’s Trumpcare 3.0 bill.
Even before his Trumpcare 2.0 vote, polls had Heller losing to a generic Democrat, 39 percent to 46 percent. Nevada also went for Clinton during the 2016 election, enhancing the view that Heller is vulnerable. In the wake of Trumpcare 2.0, he is more vulnerable still.
Rosen has stepped up on the Democratic side to challenge him. Please check out her site and think about what you can do to help her. Note also that Rosen is supported by our friends at 314 Action, the organization that boosts candidates who have STEM backgrounds. She worked as a computer programmer and a software developer.
Note: Sarah Jane, lead editor on OTYCD, has since chosen Rosen for her Core Four.
