Jacky Rosen, the Democratic Congresswoman hoping to become Nevada’s next senator, has won endorsements from Barack Obama and Joe Biden, but she’s received a different sort of shout-out from President Trump, who nicknamed her “Wacky Jacky” in a now-viral speech.
Rosen, 61, wears the insult as a badge of honor. “It surely means that I’m on the president and Dean Heller’s radar,” she says of her Republican opponent. “They have a lot to be worried about because I’ll tell you this: Dean Heller will never outwork me and my team. We are determined to win this race, and I will not rest until the polls are closed. If you want to call that wacky, he can go right ahead!”
Rosen’s is considered one of the most competitive races in the Senate and, if she manages to unseat Heller, a key foothold for Democrats in their effort to tip the upper house blue.
