Embattled Congresswoman Shelley Berkley, in an email blast to her supporters once again cites an oversampled internal poll conducted by a Democrat firm, choosing to ignore a new SurveyUSA Poll showing Senator Dean Heller 5% lead, opting instead to flat-out lie to her supporters in a futile attempt to bolster her standings in the race.
Question: If Shelley Berkley can so easily lie to her own supporters… how can Nevadans trust her to tell them the truth?
Here’s the email in question:
“The survey shows the campaign overall continues to be tight, with the Democratic congresswoman at 44 percent and the Republican senator at 42 percent.”

We always knew this race was close. New polling shows the Nevada Senate race is statistically tied.
The special interests have spent more than $3.7 million attacking me in this campaign already. It’s no secret the far-right wants to keep me from fighting for the middle class in the Senate.
In order to beat them, we need to be more active, more engaged, and more committed than they are to winning this race — and that means everyone needs to play a part.
We need $100,000 this month to hit our mark before the fall campaign season begins — and with just eight days to go, we have just under $52,000 left to raise. Whether you give $3 or $300 makes no difference — so long as you do what you can to help out today.
All the things we want to talk about — protecting women and families, investing in clean energy, creating jobs, helping families stay in their homes — rely on us having the resources to break through with our message.
And the more people we have helping us out now, the closer we are to winning in the fall.
If you stay involved, we stay ahead in the momentum game. And in a close race like this, that will make the difference.
Thank you for being a part of our grassroots campaign. I’m so grateful for all your support.
