  • Sen. Heller reportedly refers to Kavanaugh assault allegation as a ‘hiccup’

Heller's opponent Jacky Rosen, who is running on a broad platform of health care expansion, immigration reform, and protecting veterans and retirement benefits, is running roughly even in polls.

Trump will be in Nevada supporting Senator Dean Heller, now up for reelection against Democrat Jacky Rosen.

"Eighty percent of what this president has done has been very, very good, very positive", Heller said.

President Trump torched Democrats, claiming they're anti-ICE and anti-law enforcement.

To win, Heller has to get support from nonpartisans, who make up about 21 percent of the state's active voters, while ensuring that Republicans, including those still resentful over his past criticism of Trump, vote for him.

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) reportedly characterized the sexual assault allegation against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh as a "hiccup" and predicted that President Trump's nominee will soon be confirmed for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.


"The other 20 percent. he has a reality show".

"They are lousy politicians and their policies are awful", said Trump, in only his second rally as president in a state he lost two years ago, "but they are good at sticking together and resisting, that's what they do".

Trump saved Heller from a costly primary earlier this year when he persuaded Danny Tarkanian to drop out of the Senate race and instead seek a House seat. But I don't think you can delay it any longer. I mean, you could also say, when did this all happen, what's going on?

But Trump also said he wants to hear Ford's side of the story, adding: "Let her say what she has to say".

"She's introducing herself to the rest of the state while he's making the case that he's been hard at work", Ferraro said. "We got a little hiccup here with the Kavanaugh nomination, we'll get through this and we'll get off to the races".
