Someone broke into a Republican congressman's office in order to leave a chilling message about his pivotal vote on Senate Republicans' Obamacare repeal and replace bill.

“Vote no on the health care bill or I will lose my health care and die, and you will, too," the note reportedly read.

A law enforcement official told the Nevada Independent that the note was taped to the Senate office of Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) by someone who gained illegal entry to the building.

“The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department received a call from an alarm company representative reporting a burglary alarm at the main entrance of an office building where Senator Dean Heller’s office is located,” a police statement said.

“The preliminary investigation by patrol officers determined that a burglary did not occur to the main building or to Senator Heller’s office," the statement continued. "However, a threatening note addressed to Senator Heller was discovered near the door to his office."

"Officers took a report for Threatening or Obscene Letters or Writing (NRS 207.180). The LVMPD has an on-going investigation into this incident," it concluded.

The vote on the Senate Republicans' health care bill has been delayed because of the hospitalization of Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) due to health complications. Heller has not said if he'll vote for or against the bill.
