Tarkanian, 56, unveiled the attack Wednesday during an interview with local KBET radio host Kevin Wall, focusing on the first daughter’s politics in an effort to characterize Heller as liberal.

“Dean Heller’s saying that he talks to Trump on the phone all the time,” Tarkanian said. “Well, Ivanka Trump was a Democrat, and she’s very, very moderate to liberal, compared to the Republican base.”

Tarkanian later said in a statement to CNN that he “did not say nor mean to infer a relationship with Ivanka is a bad thing. It is a good thing. She is the daughter of the president.”

But he added that Ivanka Trump “is a registered Democrat and more moderate than the GOP base, which means her political views are probably similar to Heller’s views, because he is a moderate to liberal.” Ivanka Trump, 36, referred to herself as a political independent in 2016.
