so i'll never understand politicians like congressman heck, who tried to defund planned parenthood. he was even willing to shut down the government over it. heck was opposed to roe v. wade and tried to criminalize abortion.
that's just shameful, it's just wrong, it doesn't help anybody. congressman heck does not share my values. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising. there's the nevada way. work hard. play by the rules.
