My 2012 campaign season has been made — Nevada Tea Party icon Sharron Angle has announced she will be running for Congress, even if she hasn’t actually picked a race yet.
Via The Washington Post:
Nearly five months after her strong bid to unseat U.S. Sen. Harry Reid ended in defeat, Sharron Angle said Wednesday she’ll run for Congress again in an effort to “stop the liberal agenda.”
Angle told supporters via YouTube, Twitter and an e-mail that she will pursue one of Nevada’s four U.S. House seats in 2012.
“With your help we can once again change the country’s direction like we started in 2010,” she wrote in an e-mail to supporters.
Reid beat Angle by 6 percentage points in November after a bitter campaign. But she put up a strong fight, raising $14 million in one three-month fundraising quarter and finishing ahead in a series of polls.
In her announcement video Angle says she’s going to run because of the “unconstitutional agenda” of President Barack Obama. By “unconstitutional” she no doubt means things like “unemployment benefits” and “public education,” just two of the many government programs she declared unconstitutional during her senate run.
