Angle Announces Bid For Nevada House Seat

March 22, 2011 by  

Angle announces bid for Nevada House seatTea Party favorite Sharron Angle will make another bid for Congress next year, but this time she's aiming for a seat in the House of Representatives.

On March 16, Angle announced her candidacy for the 2nd Congressional District seat in Nevada, which is currently held by Republican Dean Heller. A two-term Congressman, Heller revealed on March 15 that he will run for the Senate seat that will be vacated by John Ensign (R-Nev.), who recently announced his retirement amid controversy surrounding an alleged affair with a campaign aide.

In November 2010, Angle was defeated by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) despite being ahead in several pre-election polls. In a YouTube video in which she announced her candidacy for the House, Angle called the 2010 elections "bittersweet" because of sweeping victories for other GOP politicians, including several Tea Party-backed conservatives.

"Conservatives had some victories but we still face obstacles from Democrats in Congress and in the White House," she said. "The Obama administration has made it clear that it intends to pursue unConstitutional legislation like Obamacare, job-killing policies, new regulations and a Federal spending increase that will paralyze our economic health."

According to The New American, Angle is popular among staunch conservatives because of her hard-line stance against Federal funding for abortions as well as social security and unemployment benefits.

    Why don’t you tell us the reasons, like the dems raiding social security to balance the budget during the clinton administration. You don’t think that idiot clinton did anything to balance the budget. The unemployment issue was people being on it for more than 2 years, which I agree with her. There are alot of people out there who are riding the unemployment train. I know a few and I’m sure everyone else know of some!!!!

    I am still not convinced she lost to Harry Reid.

    • Cribster

      She didn’t.

      Reid called in favors from casinos to whom he basically supplies illegal labor. The casinos gave people paid time off from work to vote for Reid. At other events people were given food and gift cards to vote for Reid. There were anomalies in voting machines where registered Democrats reported instances of Reid being selected before they even voted.

      Reid pulled out all the stops and used every dirty trick available to barely eek by Sharron.

    Here Nevada goes again. Sharon Angles made some real popular statements here. Like the average American is lazy and doesn’t want to work.That they have no right to believe their entitled to social security and should have planned better for retirement. Although I concede there are some lazy and some should have planned better for retirement,but NOT all americans are lazy and most have planned for retirement we ARE entitled to the social security back that we paid in. It’s time to stop using the social security for their pork bill slush fund.We did plan for retirement,but I think it went into one of those million dollar bonus that was handed out because it sure not going into my pocket.She sits back and collects her husbands goverment pension and goes on her merry way. She even avoided the media here because everytime she opened her mouth she said something stupid. She needs to wake-up and remember this country was built on the blood of our soldiers and americans hard work,through blood,sweat or tears.Not on the back of lazy people who stand in line for a hand-out. I have paid into social security for 40 years and you better belive I want my $#% money back.

    Reid usurped the election mainly through the unions… Angle is running against someone that does not have ties to the unions so she may have a chance of winning.

    Yes Reid and SIEU and the casinos had several voter vote the Chitcago way voting, vote and vote often, even if you are a illegal and cann’t speak English. Is is just methods used by soros socialist democraps for decades and refined with Onumnutts mystery organization ACORN. Don’t forgety all of Harry Weeds kids that are lobbyist in Washington DC. Time to send the charge of impelmenting the Ricco chargeon not only Reid but the whole democrat party using forgeign money man Soros that is creating shadow PACs.
