Nevada 2018 Race

More than 630,000 Nevadans — one of every six residents of the Silver State — obtain health coverage through Medicaid. But when it counted most in 2017,  U.S. Senator Dean Heller voted to attack Nevadans’ access to care — backing an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act that would’ve caused millions of Americans to go without Medicaid coverage.

In addition, the bill supported by Heller would have blocked Nevadans who rely on public health-care funds from obtaining care at Planned Parenthood health centers. Heller’s vote broke his explicit promise — made before voters at a town hall — to “protect Planned Parenthood” for patients who rely on it for reproductive and sexual health care.

Nevadans deserve a senator whose voice and vote they can trust — one who will stand with Planned Parenthood, and by their word.

Dean Heller (R), Incumbent

Sen. Dean Heller has been a rubber stamp for the Trump-Pence agenda, including numerous attempts to undermine reproductive health and rights.

On several occasions, Heller has called for legislation to block millions of women from getting birth control, cancer screenings and STI testing at Planned Parenthood health centers. Heller doesn’t stand for equal pay, access to safe and legal abortion, or low-cost birth control for women in Nevada. He does not stand for the interests of Nevadans.
