Sharron Angle Hints She Might Run Again
Sharron Angle is a name that most Republicans would probably like to forget. In a year when the GOP was riding high atop a cresting wave of bad economic news, Tea Party enthusiasm, and voter distrust of a complicated health care plan, she ended up taking a race against the most powerful Democrat in the Senate that seemed to be winnable and did everything possible to lose it. Now, she’s saying she might run again:
When asked if she would ever run for a Senate seat again, Angle responded that “it’s a possibility.”
“Certainly, we need to replace Harry Reid’s leadership and it would be nice to have a different person representing our state as well,” she said. “I encourage you all to run for office. I wouldn’t encourage you to do anything I haven’t done myself and wouldn’t do again.
“…If you believe in representative government, then you have to be willing to be one of those representatives. And I’m willing.”
Reid is up again in 2016. He’ll be 76 by then and may well decide to retire. You can bet the Nevada GOP will do everything it can to make sure Angle isn’t their nominee.
