President Trump said that former Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) lost his re-election bid last fall because the Nevada Republican had been “extraordinarily hostile” to him during the 2016 election and the conservative base “wouldn’t go for him,” the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
When told of Trump’s comments, Heller said: “This president called me that day before the election and said I was going to win by five points. Now all of sudden he has a different spin on that. Not surprising. I think America’s used to that.”
