But the Republican senator says he likes his current job.
(Burgess Everette, Politico) – Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), the top target for Senate Democrats in the 2018 midterms, isn’t ruling out running for governor instead.
In an interview Thursday, the senator said he enjoys his current job but indicated he’s keeping his options open. The state’s current governor, Republican Brian Sandoval, is termed out in two years.
“I like what I do, so I’ll consider it but I like what I do,” Heller, a critical swing vote on matters such as immigration reform and extending unemployment benefits, said. Asked to elaborate, he responded: “I’m not going to tell you what that means. I’m happy with my job.”
