Who Is Dean Heller's Wife? New Details On Lynne Heller

Since 2011, Dean Heller has served as a U.S. Senator from Nevada, previously serving as Secretary of State of Nevada and as a U.S. Representative. But in the recent 2018 midterm elections, he was defeated by his challenger, Jacky Rosen, making him the only Republican Senator to lose re-election in this cycle.

It’s good news for Democrats because Heller is known to have moderate Republican views. And though he was initially an opponent of the president, he learned to “embrace” him and “aligned himself closely” with him. Trump threatened to support a primary challenge against him, causing Heller to flip-flop on key issues, including immigration reform and healthcare.
