President Trump “met with Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), and Dean Heller (R-NY) on Friday at the White House to discuss their plan to give federal funds to the states for states to implement components of their own health care plan.” (NBC News)

The Nevada Democratic Party accused Heller of “another lie.” Spokesman Stewart Boss: “While Senator Heller’s PR team says he’s working across the aisle on health care, the Senator himself was secretly meeting at the Trump White House to help pitch another partisan repeal plan.” (release)

In response to Heller's health care vote, Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV 03) launched a 60-second digital ad attacking her opponent. "The video, titled 'Repeal,' features Senator Heller’s ... June 23 press conference, where he said: 'I cannot support a piece of legislation that takes away insurance from tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans.'" (release)
