Nevada gubernatorial candidate Dean Heller refuses to say Biden is president

Although Republicans maintained their U.S. Senate majority in the 2018 midterms — Democrats didn’t retake the Senate until January 2021 — they were disappointed when then-Sen. Dean Heller was voted out of office in Nevada. Trumpism did not serve Heller well in 2018; he lost to Democrat Jacky Rosen, now a U.S. senator, by 5%. But Heller, who is running for governor of Nevada in the 2022 midterms, hasn’t grown any less Trumpian since 2018 — and that includes promoting the Big Lie.

Nevada’s Blue Wave

For most of the last 30 years, it’s been Republicans who have charted Nevada’s political destiny. The GOP won every governor’s election from 1998 until 2018 and usually controlled the state Senate. In the 2000s, the state went to George W. Bush twice, albeit by a few percentage points. Then, three years ago, Nevada Democrats did something remarkable.
Buoyed by a nationwide “blue wave” backlash to Trumpism, Nevada voters elected a Democratic governor, Steve Sisolak, and handed all but one of the statewide offices to Democrats.

Instead we get mansions stocked to the brim with champagne; private phone booths in which hot suitors decide which random stranger sounds like marriage material; F-boys and girls making out on the beach. (Or trying not to make out in a beach house.
