Trump offers support for Nevada senator

Republican Danny Tarkanian, a perennial and unsuccessful candidate for Nevada elective office, said he's dropping his bid to challenge Heller after President Donald Trump urged him to seek a House seat instead.

Plus Trump's endorsement of Dean Heller may surprise Nevada Republicans because Heller was a #NeverTrumper and spoke against the now president openly both in the primary and the general.

He said Trump and his political team reached out to him on Wednesday and "asked me to consider supporting the America First agenda as a congressional candidate" in the third district. Along with Trump, Tarkanian has also received support from former White House strategist Steve Bannon.

Danny Tarkanian is no longer running for the U.S. Senate in Nevada, but rather for Congress.

Tarkanian's announcement came shortly after Trump tweeted Friday that, "It would be great for the Republican Party of Nevada, and it's unity if good guy Danny Tarkanian would run for Congress and Dean Heller, who is doing a really good job, could run for Senate unopposed!"

"This campaign has always been about running to repeal and replace Dean Heller, and we're going to flip this seat in November", she said in a statement.

Entertaining the idea of defeating Heller may be why many Republicans within the state jumped on Tarkanian's bandwagon.

Tarkanian is a vocal supporter of President Trump (Tarkanian's official Twitter account features a pinned tweet, with a photo of Trump getting sworn in, that says "RT if you're proud of Making America Great Again!") and he's certainly further to the right than Heller. Republicans also lost a special election for a Senate seat in Alabama in December, with Democrat Doug Jones prevailing and narrowing the GOP majority in the chamber to 51-49. The results have yet to be certified in the district, which Trump won by 20 percentage points in 2016.
