As Kavanaugh Controversy Boils, 314 Action Targets Nevada Sen. Dean Heller for Record on Women’s Issues

Digital Campaign Calls Out Dean Heller’s Record of Flip-Flops and Dangerous Votes


(Washington, D.C.) - Today, 314 Action, the largest organization created specifically for scientists and STEM professionals running for office, launched a digital campaign targeting Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) for his voting record on issues important to Nevada women. The first digital video in the campaign highlights Heller’s votes to defund Planned Parenthood, his votes against equal pay legislation and his recent statement that the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh were a “hiccup.”

Ted Bordelon, Director of Communications for 314 Action, released the following statement:


“Dean Heller talks a good game in Nevada but his record in Washington shows he’s turned his back on Nevada’s women. Getting reelected is his priority, even if it means taking away a woman’s right to choose, or affordable health insurance that includes contraceptive coverage. He’s opposed to equal pay and he said America will be better off with Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. He doesn’t get it.”


Heller faces Democrat and STEM professional Jacky Rosen, who has been a tireless advocate for women in Nevada. In addition to 314 Action’s endorsement, Rosen is supported by Planned Parenthood and EMILY’s List.
