No Special-Election Bid for Sharron Angle After All


Sharron Angle has dropped out of the special U.S. House race in Nevada’s 2nd congressional district. She says she may consider another run for the seat or another office in the future.

At this point, the “candidacy” of all of the Republicans wishing to represent this district is somewhat moot, as the nominee will be selected by the state GOP’s central committee, although the court ruling that threw out the rules from the Nevada secretary of state and set up these rules is certain to be challenged in the Nevada Supreme Court.

Perhaps an early indicator that Angle’s bid was unlikely to go the distance was that her web site had no updates from the initial announcement of the candidacy.
