In a statement teeming with conservative shibboleths, Rep. Dean Heller announced his candidacy this morning for U.S. Sen. John Ensign's seat in an email to supporters. Heller has been widely expected to run since he released a poll a few weeks ago showing him crushing Ensign, who announced his retirement last week.
So Dean Heller is now in. And we're all supposed to be in awe of his wondrous glory.
Does he still think we're "hobos"? Will he go along with his fellow Republicans continuing to try shoving a Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump down our throats? Will he still stand with his GOP colleagues in OPPOSING vital renewable energy projects set to create jobs here in Nevada and making our state & country more energy independent?
Is Dean Heller really interested in serving Nevada in The US Senate? Or will he do or say anything to get another promotion?
