The Hill reports:
Former Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) said Monday he will run for governor in Nevada next year, reentering politics three years after he lost his seat in a Democratic wave. In a video posted Monday, Heller cast himself as a conservative opposed to mask mandates, defunding the police and lockdowns in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
“After serving Nevada in the Senate, I thought I was done with politics,” Heller says. “But look what’s happened to Nevada. We have a governor more interested in putting us out of work than putting us back to work. Las Vegas became a sanctuary city. Violent crime’s exploding. People who work for a living are scared. And I’ve had it.”

In his campaign clip below, Heller drives a race car, hauls bales of hay, fires a pistol in the company of his children, and holds a baby. USA! USA! Heller last appeared on JMG in 2019 when Trump blamed his 2018 Senate loss on Heller having been “extraordinarily hostile” to him.
As @DeanHeller seeks a political comeback with his #NVGov campaign, and as @JoeLombardoNV seeks to revive his campaign, we look to California and find potential clues from the #CaliforniaRecall #CARecall fallout on what’s coming our way. #nvpol pic.twitter.com/TI535gWMO5

My dad taught me that working people are the heart of Nevada. But today, folks who work for a living are getting crushed by Steve Sisolak. I’ve had it. It’s time Nevada had a conservative Governor with a lick of common sense. That’s why I’m running. https://t.co/LUyNBshrVm pic.twitter.com/roamVhoxoC
