Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani — a Democrat who lost the gubernatorial primary this year to her colleague, Steve Sisolak — expressed similar disappointment with Heller. He’s not the “pretty moderate” lawmaker she worked with in the Legislature and grabbed hamburgers with at the now-closed Penguin Drive-In, she said.
Giunchigliani said Heller should have stood his ground over certain issues in Washington, D.C.
“You don’t just change in the political winds,” she said.
Still, her reason for attending the demonstration outside the president’s rally — organized by groups such as Battle Born Progress, NextGen Nevada and For Nevada’s Future, among others — was far broader. Trump and his supporters, she said, jeopardize progressive family values.
“I’m out here to make sure our voice is not drowned out,” she said.
