Heller, Hardy, Amodei Back Fellow Republican Heck For Senate

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Sen. Dean Heller and congressmen Mark Amodei and Cresent Hardy are formally endorsing their Republican colleague Joe Heck for Senate.

The trio issued statements Wednesday supporting the three-term congressman a week after he announced a bid for the seat being vacated by Democratic Sen. Harry Reid.

Heller said he's been proud to work with Heck on initiatives benefiting Nevada.

Hardy and Amodei pointed to Heck's work in the Army Reserves and as a doctor as proof of his dedication to Nevadans.

Heck faces a competitive race against Democratic former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.
