(Newser) – Sharron Angle, who lost to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in a hotly contested Nevada race last year, will seek office again—but this time in the House. Angle was considered a likely candidate after Sen. John Ensign announced last week that he wouldn’t seek reelection. But instead, she’ll pursue the House seat vacated by Rep. Dean Heller, the likely GOP nominee for Ensign’s job, the Washington Post reports.
