Congressman Dean Heller is Nevada’s next U.S. senator.  Heller sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, saying he will step down as congressman. He was then sworn in as senator.  The Republican lawmaker was appointed to replace John Ensign, who resigned last week.  A special election will be held in September for Heller’s congressional seat.
