    Republican Danny Tarkanian has reportedly agreed to drop his primary against Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) and instead run for the House after getting a public shove from President Trump on Fridayto do so, boosting Heller’s chances of reelection in the Democratic-leaning state. The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that Tarkanian has decided on another House run (he’s lost two previous bids for the House and six different campaigns in the state) almost immediately after Trump tweeted that he should do so and leave Heller alone.

In 1990, Heller won election to the Nevada State Legislature where he served two terms until 1994 when he ran for Nevada Secretary of State and served three terms.

    “Our booking team, and they’re good, reached out to Republicans of all stripes across the country today. Let’s be honest. Republicans often don’t really mind coming on Fox News Channel. We couldn’t get anyone to come and defend him here because we thought, in balance, someone should do that. We worked very hard at it throughout the day, and we were unsuccessful.” One Republican that apparently hadn’t been reached out to, is Danny Tarkanian, running for U.S. Senate against Dean Heller in Nevada. He accepted Shepard Smith’s challenge today on social media. He tweeted: Hey @ShepNewsTeam bookers didn’t contact me...
  • reasons Tarkanian can beat Heller (NV)

    08/18/2017 4:11:48 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 10 replies ^ | 8/17/17 | Victor Joecks
    Recent history says Danny Tarkanian is wasting his time challenging Sen. Dean Heller in next year’s Republican primary. From 2012 to 2016, only one sitting U.S. senator lost a primary challenge: a then-80-year-old Richard Lugar, R-Ind., in 2012. That’s a tough place to start from, but past trends ignore the unique problems Heller faces in his re-election bid. Here are four reasons Tarkanian can best Heller and advance to the general election. 1. Heller voted against repealing Obamacare. For six years, being a Republican meant vigorously opposing Obamacare. Heller voted to repeal it in 2015. But when Heller had a...

    Nevada Sen. Dean Heller is testing the political perils of opposing President Trump from inside his own party, with the entrance into the 2018 Republican primary Tuesday of Danny Tarkanian. Tarkanian, a five-time failed candidate for public office, is wrapping himself in the mantle of Trump, vowing to be an enthusiastic, loyal soldier for the president in the Senate, where Heller tends to vote with the White House, though not blindly and at times reluctantly. "I am a conservative Republican who supports the policies of President Trump to repeal Obamacare and end illegal immigration," Tarkanian said in a statement. "I...

    Perennial candidate Danny Tarkanian will challenge Sen. Dean Heller in Nevada's 2018 GOP primary, in the hopes of capitalizing on the incumbent's public clashes with President Trump. Tarkanian issued a statement Tuesday aligning himself with Trump and promising to stick with the president if he is elected next year. "I am a conservative Republican who supports the policies of President Trump to repeal Obamacare and end illegal immigration. I will continue to support President Trump's policies that have led to a 20 percent increase in the stock market in just six months. I will join Senator Lee, Senator Cruz, and...
  • Conservative Majority Fund Has Another Political Attack Ad With Obama Admitting He Is A Muslim

    07/28/2012 3:31:31 PM PDT · by Fred Garvin-MP · 65 replies
    This attack ad was made by the same group who released the controversial attack ad early this week on Fox News Channel, ABC and ESPN that questioned Obama's missing records. The newly formed group is called the 'Conservative Majority Fund' backed by big money out of Arlington,VA. Their recent ad this week caused a uproar with liberals and the media. There are a lot of doubters who disregard the fact that it is no big deal for a American president to be a Muslim, especially in a time of war against people who are Islamic extremist. It's so dangerous that...

    LAS VEGAS (June 7) -- A long-brewing feud between tea party factions over Tuesday's Nevada Republican primary election has boiled over into bitter e-mail exchanges in which activists are lambasting one another as "turncoats" and "representative of a liberal mentality." The dispute pits representatives of the Tea Party Express, the national group that has endorsed Sharron Angle to be Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid's fall opponent, against Nevada activists who resent outside groups trying to influence an election in which several of the leading candidates have laid claim to tea party bona fides.

    LA Times ^ | 060510 | Kathleen Hennessey and Ashley Powers
    If Republican Sharron Angle wins her party's Senate primary Tuesday, it will be a victory for the soft-spoken perpetual candidate, Nevada's conservative diehards, the national "tea party" movement and underdogs everywhere. It will also be a huge win for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The Nevada Democrat has been working for months — some might say years — to cast his own opponent in the against-all-odds drama that is his reelection campaign. With dismal approval ratings and an anti-incumbent political climate, Reid is so vulnerable that Washington insiders have been debating who the next majority leader might be. But Reid,...

    As the Nevada GOP Senate primary approaches its unpredictable conclusion, there is a potential disaster brewing for Silver State Republicans come fall. Sue Lowden, once the clear leader in the race has imploded thanks to politically asinine comments about bartering with chickens for health care. Never mind that bartering does continue to take place, when it comes to politics, such an unforced error is devastating. Moreover, Lowden’s questionable partial ownership and nondisclosure of her campaign bus has given her campaign an air of underhandedness. Add to Lowden’s woes her insider’s insider status as the former Nevada GOP Party Chair and...

    Now, with Democrats at risk of sustaining huge election losses in November, unions are ready to spend piles of cash to save as many incumbents as possible. The Hill reported this month that AFSCME and the SEIU have committed $94 million between them to bail out mortally wounded Democrats, including Sen. Reid. But first, they want a gesture of good faith in return. That's why Sen. Reid is in a rush to get this horrible legislation passed.

"They told us, 'Listen, this is none of your business. This has nothing to do with Nevada, this is the Tea Party Express.' In my view, that's not how grassroots is...
