Nevada Sen. Heller thanks Trump for support

Heller released a statement Friday acknowledging Trump's praise offered on Twitter, but it included no mention of Heller's primary election opponent making an abrupt decision to drop out at the president's request.

Nevada Republican Danny Tarkanian, who had planned to run against US Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) in this year's Senate primary, has instead made a decision to run for the Congressional seat being vacated by Democrat Jacky Rosen, who is running in the Democratic primary for Heller's seat. Dean Heller from the moment he announced his Senate bid, but Trump's Friday morning tweet changed the dynamics of two Nevada races.

Tarkanian has torched Heller as a so-called "Never Trumper" for his opposition to the president in the 2016 election.

Heller's race is rated a "toss-up" by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.

But while avoiding a primary is a godsend for Heller, Trump's seal of approval is unlikely to help in the general election in a state he narrowly lost in 2016, has large and fast-growing populations of Hispanics and Asian Americans.

It "would be great" if Heller "could run for Senate unopposed!" he wrote in a tweet.

He didn't see much action throughout his four-year stint there but he set career-highs in nearly every category last season. The Indianapolis Colts have needs at nearly every position, including wide receiver, where the depth is extremely thin.

Tarkanian said in a statement that he believes he would have won the Senate seat, "but the president is adamant that a unified Republican ticket in Nevada is the best direction for the America First movement".

Heller is considered one of the most vulnerable Republicans running for re-election in the Senate this year. These grassroots supporters saw in me a fierce defender of President Trump's America First agenda.

President Donald Trump is advocating for Nevada Sen. But there are holes in the GOP map: The retirements of Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) this month has some GOP strategists fearing a potential repeat of last year's special-election debacle in Alabama, where Democrat Doug Jones won a Senate seat after Republicans nominated Roy Moore, a conservative hard-liner. "The President's pro-growth agenda is already showing results in Nevada".

The Las Vegas Republican businessman only narrowly lost a 2016 bid to win the battleground congressional district.

It appears Trump is suggesting Tarkanian should run for a seat in the House of Representatives.

He says he plans to instead run in the state's 3rd Congressional District. He added that "public service is doing what is in the best interest of the people you represent, not yourself politically".
