LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller is thanking his family and staff and touting the work of his office in a farewell speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate.


Heller in a speech in Washington Thursday morning cited his work on veterans' issues and the 2017 Republican tax overhaul as among his top accomplishments in his seven years in the Senate.

Heller lost a re-election race in November to Democrat Jacky Rosen. Heller was a former critic of President Donald Trump but became his ally and campaigned with him as he sought another term.


The senator on Thursday spoke about the 2017 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip and the way Nevadans stepped up to help in response.
