**Dr. Joe Heck Campaigns in Pahrump**
The Dr. Joe Heck for Senate campaign stopped in Pahrump recently on their “Stronger Nevada” tour of the Silver State. Dr. Heck spoke to several dozen area residents at the Bob Ruud Community Center. Pahrump was one of the several rural communities Heck visited, along with Ely, Eureka, Yerington and Tonopah. Dr. Heck spoke of the unique concerns and challenges that those living in rural communities have that their neighbors in urban areas do not have to contend with. “People from rural areas are concerned with public land use and management and their rights. They also have serious concerns about the second amendment. People from rural areas are also concerned about the bread-and-butter issues such as jobs and the economy, health care, education and national security. Fortunately for me, those four areas are areas that I have lived and worked in my entire life so I can address those issues with firsthand experience.”
