Mark Amodei, Nevada Republican Party Chairman, announced today he is entering the election for the 2nd Congressional District of Nevada. (That includes Nye County). The seat he is running for is the seat vacated by Dean Heller to become Senator.
The Special Election will be held September 13.
four five Republicans have announced their candidacies for the 2nd District.
- Sharron Angle
- State Senator Greg Brower
- U.S.S. Cole Commander Kirk Lippold and now
- Mark Amodei
- Ed Hamilton [LVRJ]
At this same moment there are three Democrats running for the 2nd District.
Democrats have never held the 2nd District seat. The district has always been represented by a Republican.
There will be more announcing their run for the 2nd District in the days ahead.
We, here in Pahrump and Nye County, will surely be seeing and hearing from them all during the course of their campaigns. Weâll try to keep up with them all.
