However, as The Post’s David Weigel pointed out, Heller is the only Senate Republican facing reelection in 2018 in a state won by Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton last year. His unique position has made him the focus of several advertising campaigns trying to lobby for his vote.

Last month, Heller came out against an earlier iteration of the GOP’s health-care bill, becoming the fifth Republican senator to do so at the time. At a June 23 news conference, Heller said he was particularly concerned about potential cuts to Medicaid, as well as the impending loss of insurance for those struggling with mental-health and substance-abuse issues.

Three weeks later, Heller is in no less a precarious spot when it comes to voting on the GOP’s new proposal to remake the Affordable Care Act, unveiled by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) last week.

Currently two Republican senators — Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — have publicly said they continue to oppose the GOP’s health-care bill. Just one more “no” vote from a Republican senator would mean the bill would not have the 50 votes it needs to pass.

When Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced he needed to recover from surgery and would be absent from a vote Saturday night, McConnell said the Senate would postpone the vote.
