Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, Dr, Joe Heck, continues his support for Donald Trump despite Trump’ seriously flawed, bigoted and dangerous plans for our country. Sen. Dean Heller long ago announced that he will not support Trump.
I don’t any Republican who doesn’t support the GOP candidate for president. Why is that such a big deal? All Republicans should denounce Donald Trump. It should be easy. Trump is destroying their Party. Why on earth would anyone support a candidate who, in my opinion, is borderline, if not actually, insane.
Does Heck support Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Japan, and God only knows what other countries acquiring a nuclear bomb? Donald Trump does. Doesn’t Heck realize the potential for a nuclear holocaust if we go down the path Donald Trump is walking? Evidently not.
Does Heck want to punish any woman who has an abortion for any reason, perhaps sending them to jail? Donald Trump told Chris Matthews that he does. On Aug. 23,Trump actually called Hillary Clinton a girl and said that women are physically inferior to men and don’t have the stamina to be president. This is what Joe Heck is supporting.
Does Heck believe women should be called pigs, bitches, babes, bimbos, slobs, sluts, dogs and despicable animals? Donald Trump does. Does Heck want any legal immigrant coming into this country to pass a religious litmus test? Trump does. Does Heck believe Mexicans coming into this country illegally are all murderers, criminals, and rapists sent here by the Mexican government? Trumps said they are.
Does Heck want to round up about 11 million illegal immigrants and have them deported? Trump did, maybe he still does, maybe he doesn’t anymore. Who knows? Maybe Heck does.
Dr. Heck, do you want Russia to hack into the emails of your political opponent? Trump does. Maybe he was joking. Dr. Heck do you mock those with physical disabilities? Trump did. Maybe he was joking. Do you repeatedly ask why we can‘t use nuclear weapons if we have them? Trump does.
So, Dr. Heck, do you believe your candidate for president knows more about ISIS than our generals? He said he does. Do you believe your candidate for president knows how to stop all crime in the inner-cities of America? He said he does. Do you know why he isn’t sharing this secret plan right now? If so, tell us.
This isn‘t all you support when you back Donald Trump for president. He has backed his supporters to commit acts of violence against his opponents. He has suggested gun rights activist might have a “Second Amendment solution” should Hillary Clinton get elected. Maybe he was just telling a bad joke. It is hard to believe that Heck or anyone else still supports this candidate. Still it’s Heck and Trump. Two peas in a pod. Heck is with Trump all the way.
Catherine Cortez Masto is Heck’s Democratic opponent for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid. She evidently rubbed some the wrong way by not letting them know her schedule of visits to rural Nevada. Funny, I knew when she was visiting Fallon.
Cortez Masto is far and away the best candidate for the Senate. She believes in cooperating with the opposing party to get things done. As Nevada’s attorney general she worked with Gov. Brian Sandoval to protect the lives of Nevada residents. As a Senator she will have no problem crossing the aisle to get things done.
Cortez Masto supports women’s rights, including the right to have a safe abortion. Therefore, she opposes the closing of free clinics such as Planned Parenthood, which also provides medical care, including cancer screening, which has saved many lives. Heck and Trump are on the other side of this issue.
She supports the right to bear arms. But she wants to keep terrorists and the mentally ill from buying guns. And she doesn’t want guns in schools or in nightclubs as Trump suggested.. Booze and guns don’t mix.
She thinks women should be paid equally as men for doing the same work. Heck and Trump don’t. She wants a $15 minimum wage. Heck’s candidate said Americans are overpaid.
Attorney General Cortez Masto worked closely with law enforcement and others to combat the use and distribution of methamphetamines. She worked to prevent the sex trafficking of children and adults She led the fight against foreclosure fraud, securing $1.9 billion from big banks on behalf of Nevada homeowners as part of the National Mortgage settlement.
Cortez Masto is with you. Heck’s with Trump.
