While others are announcing retirements around him, Nevada Sen. Dean Heller (R) is taking the opposite approach.

Sen. Heller has drawn primary opposition from perennial candidate Danny Tarkanian (R), and looks to face freshman Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Henderson) in the general election should he win re-nomination. Both the primary and general election contests today appear as toss-ups.
