Saying the decision on who to elect should rest with the people and not “politically elite powerbrokers,” Secretary of State Ross Miller announced today that the special election ballot for the 2nd Congressional District will be open to all candidates and not just nominees selected by the state’s political party.
“There’s only one critical question: how are those candidates picked? By the people of the state of Nevada or by a small group of powerful party officials,” Miller said. “We are announcing the ballot will be open to all qualified candidates.”
The special election will be Sept. 13 to replace U.S. Rep. Dean Heller, R-Nev., who will be appointed to the U.S. Senate next month following Sen. John Ensign’s resignation.
They tried so hard to shut Sharrrrrrrrrrrrrrrron Angle out of this election, but ultimately Brian Sandoval and Dean Heller couldn't. Party power brokers can't just handpick nominees, and Sharrrrrrrrrrrrrrrron will still run.
Run, Obtuse Angle, run!
