Press Release: Nevada Policy, the state’s leading conservative think tank, finds Assemblywoman Heidi Kasama to be the most liberal Republican legislator in Nevada

October 4, 2023

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada Policy, formerly the Nevada Policy Research Institute, issued its 2023 Legislative Scorecard, which found that Heidi Kasama is the most liberal Republican member of the Nevada Legislature, scoring an abysmal 64.55 percent on the critical issues that preserve economic and individual liberties and freedom. For context, the average Assembly/Senate Republican scored 83 percent.

Kasama recently entered the Republican primary for Nevada’s 3rd congressional district against leading candidate Drew Johnson, a conservative columnist and free market policy analyst.

Nevada Policy is a critically acclaimed and highly regarded independent, non-partisan think tank dedicated to promoting policies that encourage free-market solutions, protect individual liberties, and eliminate unnecessary governmental restrictions on the citizens and businesses of Nevada. After each legislative session, Nevada Policy provides a percent-based score to each legislator based on their voting record and whether campaign rhetoric matches legislative action.

I’m not surprised that Assemblywoman Kasama, a former Susie Lee supporter and donor, scored so low on issues of critical consequence to Nevada conservatives,” stated Drew Johnson. “She’s consistently served as a big government advocate, voting with Democrats and supporting far-left candidates. Kasama is hoping to fool Republican voters into believing she’s a conservative.”

“After her glaring endorsement of Democrat Susie Lee in 2018 — someone she now seeks to run against — and funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to leftists like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Ilhan Omar during her time on the National Association of Realtors PAC, it’s time for Heidi Kasama to finally admit she’s a Democrat and switch parties.”

Johnson has devoted his career to fighting for limited government, parental choice, and personal responsibility at many of America’s leading conservative think tanks, grassroots organizations, and media outlets. Drew has saved taxpayers more than $60 billion as one of America’s most effective government watchdogs, created parental choice legislation that allowed tens of thousands of students to get an excellent education at the schools of their choice, and is credited with slashing red tape for hardworking small business owners.
