Trigg pulls out of race against Heller

CARSON CITY – Cindy Trigg of Douglas County has decided to pull out of the race against Dean Heller.

Trigg, a Democrat, announced her candidacy for the Congressional District 2 earlier this year, saying the Republican incumbent was out of step with his constituency.

She said she made the decision to end the campaign after a sudden series of professional obligations arose.

“While I believe that Dean Heller can be defeated next year, I cannot dedicate the time required to mount a winning campaign.”

She said she will assist the democratic nominee for the seat “in pushing a message that Democrats are the party of job creation, economic recovery, healthcare reform, energy independence and, most importantly to me, education reform.”

Heller is serving his second two-year term as representative from Congression District 2. He has not yet said what his plans are although some Republicans are urging him to run against Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.
