Rosen’s ad shows Heller saying he “cannot support a piece of legislation that takes insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans” in June, a month before the vote.

It also highlights a woman saying during a TV interview, “I have stage four cancer. … ObamaCare is keeping me alive. … I’m asking Sen. Heller, please save my life and vote no.”

Heller last week joined several GOP senators who voiced reservations about Senate Republican leaders’ measure aimed at repealing and replacing large parts of the Affordable Care Act, but still voted to support the repeal measure as a way of getting to a conference with the House.

The video highlights cable news and newspaper clips of Trump’s pressure on Heller to vote yes, as well as a clip of Heller sitting next to Trump at a White House meeting and laughing as Trump promised he would support the bill.

Heller has faced massive backlash over his vote, which put him at odds with Nevada’s popular Republican governor, Brian Sandoval.

A Democratic-leaning pollster on Tuesday released a survey showing Heller’s approval rating in the state at 22 percent, with 55 percent disapproving.
