SHOT:Heck's desire to defund Planned Parenthood will be lethal

CHASER:Planned Parenthood Votes goes after Heck with radio ads


“Planned Parenthood Votes is spending $70,000 on radio ads in Nevada attacking Rep. Joe Heck. The ads respond to an earlier Spanish-language radio ads from the conservative America’s PAC, which attacked Democrat Catherine Catherine Cortez Masto on abortion rights. The ads, one in English and one in Spanish, say “Joe Heck’s friends are running a racist and offensive ad that implies women can’t make their own decisions about healthcare.”


Background: Joe Heck is dangerous for Nevada women
