Joe Heck Likely To Win Arizona House Seat

Who Runs Gov reports on Joe Heck: An Army Reserve doctor with experience in the Nevada Senate, Heck has sought to take that experience to Congress in an attempt to unseat Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) in the nation’s most populous Congressional District in the 2010 midterms.Myers, Laura, “CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT 3: With Henderson concert, Angle to make foray into key battleground area,” Las Vegas Review-Journal, Aug. 1, 2010(1)Myers, Laura, “CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT 3: With Henderson concert, Angle to make foray into key battleground area,” Las Vegas Review-Journal, Aug. 1, 2010

Heck’s chances improved as the Silver State struggled to recover from unemployment, which was worse in Nevada than any other state during the 2008-2009 recession. He advocates smaller taxes and government and wants to decrease deficits, while also amending the health-care reform law enacted in March 2010.

But Heck’s future may be tied to 2010 Senate candidate Sharron Angle as she and Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) battle for votes in the 3rd district. If Reid’s efforts to paint Angle as out-of-touch with most Americans are successful, then Heck’s party ties might make him a casualty of the more publicized fight in the 2010 elections.Goldberg, Delen, “Democrats’ strategy: To hurt Joe Heck, link to Sharron Angle,” Las Vegas Sun, Aug. 10, 2010(2)Goldberg, Delen, “Democrats’ strategy: To hurt Joe Heck, link to Sharron Angle,” Las Vegas Sun, Aug. 10, 2010:

In His Own Words: “Being a physician, you can either treat the symptoms or cure the disease,” said Heck. “This Congress has been treating the symptoms. It’s time we cure the disease and take care of the problems that are underlying our poor economy.”“Titus Faces Tough Challenge For Re-Election,” Fox 5 News, Las Vegas, Sept. 9, 2010(3)
