Congressman Heller will surely be victorious in his quest for the Republican Senate nomination. Congressman Heller is well respected throughout Nevada, and will be a breath of fresh air for those independent voters looking for a good quality candidate. Perhaps the most intriguing question is whether Rep. Heller is able to move to the center on immigration issues. Senator Reids race proved that winning or faring well within the Latino community is crucial in winning a statewide election. In a year where President Obama will be on the ticket, will Rep. Heller make the mistake of discounting the Latino vote?
