Nevada Republican Sharron Angle would consider waging an independent bid for Congress if she were passed over by party insiders in a potential special election for Rep. Dean Heller's (R-Nev.) House seat, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) is expected to make an appointment by the end of the week to fill the seat of Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), whose resignation is effective May 3. Sandoval is widely expected to pick Heller, who is already in the 2012 race for Ensign's seat.
That pick would set the stage for a special election to fill Heller's vacant House seat, but state elections officials are still trying to determine whether the candidates would be selected by party officials or would run in an open election.
If party insiders were to select the nominee, Angle would be at an immediate disadvantage, and, if shunned, could wage an independent bid.
Finally, Sharrrrrrrrrrrrrrron Angle has proven to be useful! As batshit crazy as she is, even she can rip off the veil of "legitimacy" to reveal what's really happening here. And of course, she's doing this because she knows Sandoval and Heller are trying to screw her out of that Congressional seat (in addition to trying to shore up Heller for next year).
It's nice to see this lovely little scheme already start to backfire on Sandoval and Heller. Serves them right. ;-)
