Sharron Angle Announces Run For House Of Representatives

It looks like Sharron Angle sees the House of Representatives as an easier win than the US Senate. Today she announced a run for the US House (NV-2) to replace Rep. Dean Heller, who is running for John Ensign's seat in the Senate.

The 2012 elections will be an interesting test for the Tea Party. Assume they'll be well-funded so blanketing districts with ads and propaganda will be no problem. What may be a problem, however, is how they're perceived given the overplayed hands unfolding right now in many states as well as the mainstream Republican Party's frustration with them in the US Congress. Angle's election to the House of Representatives isn't a given, but it will be a bellwether for the Tea Party's viability.

And just imagine the fun she can have with Virginia Foxx and Michele Bachmann if she wins.
