The Mellman Group, a national Democratic polling firm, tested the upcoming all-but-certain Senate general election campaign between first-term Nevada Sen. Dean Heller (R) and freshman Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Henderson). According to the ballot test results, Sen. Heller is clinging to a 40-39% edge. In 2012, Mr. Heller scored a similarly close one-point victory over then-US Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Las Vegas).
The Nevada Senate race is one of the nation’s premier Senate contests. It is a must-win for Democrats if they are to have any chance of taking control of the legislative body. If Mr. Heller is re-elected, the Republican majority will be secure.
