It wasn’t even close… embattled Congresswoman Shelley Berkley looked frazzled while stumbling around for answers and repeating the same tired liberal talking points. If I’m not mistaken Berkley’s response to every question included lying about Paul Ryan’s budget and ridiculously trying to tie Dean Heller to ”Big Oil” and some mysterious cabal she kept referring to as “The Big Guys.”
I tweeted my reaction after the debate ended
It was clear from the start that Barack Obama & Harry Reid’s Handmaiden was more interested in demonizing and lying about her opponent than giving thoughtful, responsible answers… and Nevada does deserve better than Shelley Berkley!
The Heller campaign sent the following statement after the debate:
Heller Campaign Declares Victory
(Reno, NV) – Tonight’s debate between Dean Heller and seven-term Congresswoman Shelley Berkley provided a clear contrast between Heller’s pro-growth, pro-middle class policies and Shelley Berkley’s big-government agenda.
“Thank you to Mitch Fox and PBS for hosting the debate. Tonight, Dean Heller provided a clear path forward for a stronger middle class and greater economic prosperity, and how he will continue his work to bring Democrats and Republicans together to create a better future for Nevada.
“On the other hand, Shelley Berkley resorted to partisan talking points and misleading attacks without providing any vision for future generations or creating long-term, sustainable jobs for Nevadans. It has become increasingly clear that Shelley Berkley has spent her fourteen years in Washington bailing out special interests on Wall Street and in Detroit, and continues to follow her party leaders and support policies that are crushing the middle class in Nevada.
“This election has enormous consequences for Nevada and the country. It’s clear that Nevadans cannot afford Shelley Berkley’s big-government, burdensome-regulation, high-tax agenda anymore,” said Chandler Smith, Heller for Senate spokeswoman.
