There was a break-in over the weekend at the Las Vegas office of Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), a Republican senator who could be a critical swing vote on the GOP health-care bill.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Department confirmed a break-in occurred Saturday morning at Heller’s office in southwest Las Vegas but did not give details, citing an ongoing investigation, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

A “threatening note” was also left at the office after the break-in, according to 8 News Now, based on an anonymous source. Las Vegas police would not confirm any information about a note to local media outlets.

Representatives for Heller did not immediately respond to a message left at his Las Vegas office or to questions sent by email Monday morning. The voice mail box for Heller’s Washington office was full.

Heller has been under tremendous pressure from both the left and the right on his vote on the health-care bill. Republican lawmakers have been steadfast for years in their promise to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act, former president Barack Obama’s signature measure — a pledge President Trump frequently invoked on the campaign trail.
