Nevada U.S. Sen. Dean Heller has been mentioned as the possible next head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) which will be in charge of recruiting and funding candidates for the 2016 election cycle.
It should be noted that the last Nevadan to head that committee was former Sen. John “Pants on the Ground” Ensign – who proceeded to lose a multitude of seats in 2008, thus making Harry Reid the Majority Leader.
To be fair, though, Ensign was just the front man. The “brains” behind that magnificent disaster was Nevada political consultant Mike Slanker – the guy phoning in Gov. Brian Sandoval’s non-race campaign.
Slanker is also a consultant to Heller.
Uh-oh. Anyone else sensing a little déjà vu all over again?
