Vulnerable GOP senators may pay a price for backing skinny repeal

Take Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada, one of 49 Republicans to vote in favor of the so-called “skinny repeal” proposal on Friday. Heller is the lone GOP senator up for re-election in a state Hillary Clinton won in 2016. He’s now on the record voting for an extremely unpopular bill that could have resulted in millions of Americans losing their insurance.

Democrats will try to ensure that he pays for that vote. Priorities USA, the powerhouse Democratic super PAC, has already released an online ad targeting Heller for his health care position.

“That’ll continue,” Patrick McHugh, the executive director of Priorities USA, said about the attack ad against Heller. “I think you’ll see advertising and communications educating voters [about who] voted for Trumpcare from now until Election Day. I don’t think it’s gonna stop.”
