What the Heller? I Mean Yes Dean Heller!

Alright, I’ve waited entirely too long to write this column on the answer to getting rid of Harry Reid! Congressman Dean Heller is the answer to the nations problem known as Harry Reid. Polls show that Dean Heller could beat Harry Reid and as many of you already know, his approval ratings remain steady.

I’ve known Dean Heller for over 10 years and can tell you that he’s a great guy, and an even better Republican. Congressman Heller has always held the line on taxes and spending and while in the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office, he became known for looking for ways to save money while continuing to be innovative. Basically, Dean Heller is a class-act, a great campaigner and the ONLY answer we truly have to beat Harry Reid!

So all of this sounds great–we have a popular Congressman, a guy that can raise lots of money against an incumbent with a HUGE target on his back. BUT…here is when we put ourselves in Dean Heller’s shoes. Heller can remain in Nevada’s Congressional District 2 as long as he wants the job. Also, Heller sits on the powerful ways and means committee in the house, and he’s only in his second term. In addition, Heller may be comfortable in his current position in Congress and might not want to change jobs–I don’t know this for sure though.

Congressman Heller has kept pretty quiet while having everyone on the planet pressure him to run against Reid. I mean everyone has called this guy, from the head of the National Senatorial Committee, to former President George W. Bush. Nevada Republicans are calling and writing him like crazy and BEGGING him to run against Reid. Please don’t ever say that Dean Heller isn’t cool under PRESSURE! If you ask me, Heller is the coolest guy in Nevada!

None of us really know what’s going on behind the scenes and surely we don’t know what Congressman Heller is thinking. What we can be sure of is that if Dean Heller doesn’t run against Harry Reid…we’ll see Harry back in Washington in 2011. While I very much like and admire some of the announced or kind-of announced candidates currently on the Republican side, I fear they won’t be able to raise the money to put up a credible challenge against Reid.

At this point, all we can do is hope and pray that we get a good candidate in this race sooner, rather than later. While I want Dean Heller to jump in the race against Harry Reid, I also want and know that Heller will do what’s best for him and his family. It won’t be a cake-walk against Reid and even though I think Heller would win, it will be national campaign with some serious money and special interests involved. If I were in Dean Heller’s shoes, I would be thinking about how easy running a re-election campaign in CD2 would be and how hard the work would be running against Reid. Maybe we’ll all find out soon what he decides and then we can put all the speculation behind us–please Dean…let us know what you’re going to do!
