LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Dean Heller issued the following statement after being elected to serve in the United States Senate:
“I am so grateful to our team of volunteers who knocked on doors, made phone calls and dedicated so many long, hard hours to achieve victory tonight. This was a hard fought campaign, and I would also like to thank Congresswoman Berkley for her service to our state and to our country.
“Throughout this campaign, I have been focused on creating a bigger, brighter future for our children and grandchildren. For their sake, we need to put a stop to out of control spending in Washington. Washington must stop rewarding bad decisions with bailouts, and we must pass policies that encourage entrepreneurship and allow the middle class to thrive. I look forward to returning to the Senate and acting on these priorities immediately to create a better future for future generations.”
