Former US Senate nominee Sharron Angle (R), who lost a close 2010 campaign to then Majority Leader Harry Reid (D), yesterday announced that she will challenge four-term US Representative Mark Amodei in next year’s Republican primary. Ms. Angle ran for the GOP Senate nomination in 2016, a last minute campaign that resulted in her losing a landslide decision to then-Rep. Joe Heck (R-Henderson). She lost a very close contest in this district back in 2006, to now-Senator Dean Heller (R). In that campaign, Angle’s margin of defeat was only 421 votes from just under 69,000 ballots being cast.
Ms. Angle is losing support with every new race she enters, so Rep. Amodei will be rated a strong favorite for re-nomination. She established herself in yesterday’s announcement as a candidate who wants to help implement the Trump agenda, failing to mention that Rep. Amodei was the Trump Nevada campaign chairman last year.
