The people have woken up. They understand the establishment politicians of both parties are against them. The people are angry and intent on throwing the Washington, D.C., bums out.
This is what worries Nevada’s GOP establishment. This is why Nevada U.S. Sen. Dean Heller is in so much trouble.
Think about this. The mainstream media have tarred and feathered President Donald Trump for nine straight months, with billions of dollars of negative press. Every news report about Trump is not just run-of-the-mill negative, but horribly negative. As in, “This racist is the most horrible human being in world history.”
Hollywood celebrities call for a coup, impeachment or his murder. Elected Democrat politicians publicly wish for his assassination. His own GOP leaders shun him.
Yet the latest polls find Trump’s popularity at 40 percent to 45 percent, while Hillary Clinton is at 30 percent. After all these months of vicious attacks, Trump is still more popular than Hillary.
That could be why sitting U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (an anti-Trumper of the highest order) is trailing by 24 points in the Arizona GOP primary to newcomer Dr. Kelli Ward. Flake’s political career is on life support.
That could be why in Alabama, my pick for U.S. Senate, Judge Roy Moore, is 14 points ahead of a candidate supported by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. McConnell’s Super PAC is spending millions to defeat Moore — to no avail. My favorite candidate Judge Moore will win by a large margin. Wanna bet?
It’s all going bad for the political establishment.
That brings me to Heller. Nevada’s GOP voters are angry. They want blood. Heller killed the repeal of Obamacare. He fought for Medicaid expansion. He supports the idea that 40 million new Americans will be on Medicaid by 2027. How insulting to his own base.
Heller has never said a word about the middle class being ripped off and bankrupted. He’s never said a word about my insurance premiums rising from $500 to $2,000 per month because of Obamacare. He’s never said a word about the millions of middle-class jobs killed by Obamacare. He has never fought for his own GOP base.
And Nevada GOP voters know this. Does the establishment think we’re dumb? I don’t know a single Nevada GOP voter who supports Heller.
But I’ve saved the best for last. Forget his views on important issues. Forget his betrayal of Trump and his own Nevada GOP base. Here’s the real reason Dean Heller does not deserve re-election: Because he’s afraid of Wayne Root.
Isn’t that amazing? I’m a conservative talk radio host. My afternoon drive-time talk can be heard in Las Vegas, Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Ely, Battle Mountain, Hawthorne and Amargosa Valley. I can reach pretty much every conservative voter in this state as they drive home from work.
My producer has asked Heller to appear multiple times. His representatives refuse every time.
Talk about cowardly. If a Republican U.S. senator won’t appear on the most popular conservative talk show in his state, is he really a Republican? Is Heller afraid to have a debate with a real conservative? Afraid to answer real questions? Afraid GOP voters will hear what he really thinks?
And if a Republican senator is afraid of a conservative radio host, how can he protect us from ISIS, or the mullahs of Iran, or the madman Kim Jong Un of North Korea?
If he’s afraid of me, how will he stand up to powerful special interests, liberals, antifa protesters or big government advocates?
My challenge to Heller is simple. Face the music. Face Wayne Root. Come on my talk show. I don’t bite. I’ll be respectful. Answer my questions. Face your own voters. Because if you don’t, you don’t deserve be our senator.
