Dean Heller receives a primary challenger in Danny Tarkanian, a familiar candidate

Danny Tarkanian, a Nevada businessman and perennial political candidate, announced on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday that he would mount a primary challenge to Heller in 2018.

In the past, Senator Dean Heller stated many times that Obamacare should be repealed: "The repeal of this law will not only reduce federal spending, but it will also allow Congress to address problems within the current health care system".

Frequent Republican candidate Danny Tarkanian said Tuesday he will run for the U.S. Senate seat held by GOP incumbent Dean Heller in 2018.

In his own statement, Tarkanian proclaims himself a supporter of the president and vows to fight against the "liberals" in the Republican Party - a potential reference to Heller.

Tarkanian calls himself a conservative Republican who supports Trump's policies to repeal Obamacare and end illegal immigration.

Tarkanian said he is running because "Nevada deserves a senator who will keep his word and vote in Washington DC the same way he campaigns here in Nevada". "They understand as I do that we're never going to make America great again unless we have senators in office that fully support President Trump and his "America First" agenda".

Tarkanian also accused Heller of having "obstructed [Trump's] agenda". "We need people who will support the America first agenda and I will be that person". Check back for updates.

Tarkanian announced his candidacy early Tuesday morning on Fox News, and followed up with a statement on his website.

Tarkanian has run for office many times but has yet to have a successful bid.

Heller voted in favor of the GOP Senate's failed "skinny repeal" of the Affordable Care Act, after opposing the GOP Senate's initial health care repeal and replacement plan.

Of the Republican Senators up for reelection in 2018, Heller is considered the most vulnerable, as he holds the sole seat in a state won by Clinton a year ago.

The Senator touts his opposition to the burying of nuclear material thousands of feet deep using technologies and procedures that pose no measurable threat to the citizens of Nevada, trivial in comparison to the critical national issues that confront us today. I will continue to support President Trump's policies that have led to a 20% increase in the stock market in just six months.

"If you vote one way, you should have a good reason for changing your vote", Tarkanian told the AP in July. "Nevada voters have rejected him every time - including less than a year ago against Jacky Rosen", Ferraro wrote. "If he ultimately files for U.S. Senate he will lose in the primary". "This was the one we were anxious about", Trump said, motioning to Heller who was seated immediately to the president's right.
