Jacky Rosen first entered public life in 2016, when she declared her candidacy to represent Nevada’s Third Congressional District. A first-time candidate in a swing seat, she nevertheless narrowly defeated her Republican opponent Danny Tarkanian in the general election.

Rosen announced her candidacy in July 2017 for the Senate, challenging Senator Dean Heller (R). The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and EMILY’s List immediately endorsed her campaign.

Heller is the most vulnerable Republican senator on the ballot in 2018, and Nevada’s Senate seat is widely viewed as the most likely to flip parties in November. Heller, who is also facing a competitive primary challenge from Tarkanian, is the only incumbent GOP senator running for re-election in a state that Hillary Clinton won. A recent poll shows Heller neck-and-neck with Rosen in a potential general election matchup.

Rosen raised more than $1.5 million in the most recent fundraising quarter, outraising Heller for the second quarter in a row and nearly doubling his fundraising haul. But the Republicans have already pledged to spend heavily to try to hold this seat, which Leader Mitch McConnell recently admitted was essential for Republicans to keep the majority in the Senate.  

Last year, Heller promised to oppose McConnell’s plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act. But Heller broke his promise and supported the Republican bill, and just days later McConnell’s Super PAC rewarded Heller by promising millions of dollars’ worth of television commercials for his campaign. 

As a freshman Member of Congress, Rosen has recorded only a few votes on our issues. She voted in favor of an amendment to require the Congressional Budget Office to submit 30-year estimates of the cost to maintain and overhaul the U.S. nuclear arsenal. She also voted in favor of a failed amendment to restrict funding of the new nuclear cruise missile.
