Nevada GOP Rep. Joe Heck has attracted some headwinds in his bid to retake Harry Reid’s Senate seat—a flock of angry Trump voters are in a snit about Heck’s disavowal of Trump earlier this month. And the chair of the local GOP in Reno, Roger Edwards, also a Trump believer, has become the tip of the spear. Lauren Fox writes:
“He could have just shut up. That’s all he had to do,” Edwards said. “Had to shoot his mouth off about how he just couldn’t stand Trump.”
When angry voters call now, Edwards sends them directly to Heck's campaign. He's got the number for the office and an e-mail for the staff taped up on a Post-It on the wall behind him. [...]
Edwards printed off an email from his own wife, Bonnie Edwards, to Heck, asking the congressman to “start right now looking for a real job” and “packing up your office in D.C.” because Heck could pretty well “count on losing the election" after he distanced himself from the base's beloved Trump.
Gotta love that hi-tech voter contact effort facilitated by Post-It note! As the RNC has been saying all along, their organization has been executing the most sophisticated ground operation ever.
More importantly, Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto is running just a couple points behind Heck after Senate Republicans put some resources into winning the seat back. They want it bad.
