NV-02: It’s Angle Time!

Ralston via Taegan:

Jon Ralston confirms that Sharron Angle (R) will run for the seat of Rep. Dean Heller (R-NV), who is running for U.S. Senate.

He notes the GOP primary “will be something else.”

It’s time to play the music! It’s time to light the lights! It’s time to meet the wingers on the crazy show tonight! Yeah, my friends, I’m in a good mood today. It’s like I can smell the cat fud that hasn’t even been opened yet. It’s not that I expect Angle to win – see Ralston via DavidNYC:

As for that 2nd CD race, Jon Ralston said he’s seen three different internal polls in recent days, all of which show Sharron Angle doing poorly in a one-on-one fight against Krolicki (and also against Heller for Senate). Ralston says he can’t divulge the numbers, but he now thinks that Angle – whom he had previously considered “the favorite” for NV-02 – would need a multi-way primary to have a chance at the nomination.

But this sure as hell ought to be entertaining!

UPDATE: Here’s Angle’s announcement video:

  1. Out just yet! Remember, both Nevada GOP Chair Mark Amodei AND Lt. Gov Brian Krolicki want to run in NV-02 as well. If they both run and split the GOP establishment vote and $$$$, much like Dean Heller and Dawn Gibbons did in 2006, Angle just might slip through. (She came within 500 votes and a federal law suit then!)

    The only big worry for her is probably Kirk Lippold. If Chuck Muth is serious about sidelining Sharrrrrrrrron and remaking Lippold into “Mr. Tea Party”, then Krolicki just might be able to breathe a little more easily.

  2. I wonder if this will have any effect on Democrat’s efforts to pack Republicans into a non-Reno district. If they make a district that a Democrat should win, it would lessen the sting a little bit of Sharon Angle being their candidate.

  3. Makes a little more room for a viable crazy person to challenge Heller without having to split the vote with the queen of crazy.  

  4. Almost. If Heck ends up getting most of the rurals and NV-2 becomes more Reno anchored, then Angle will have even more trouble winning it. If she does pull it off, get ready for 434 to Angle.

  5. Oh, Sharron.  I await the latest correspondence telling me that if I’m the Republican you’ve heard I am, I’ll readily donate to your cause.  I need another good laugh.

  6. simply does not work(it is a clear distraction); this woman’s media team is perhaps the worst i have ever seen; who did she hire for this? the folks who brought us o’donnell’s ‘i am not a witch’ ads??
