Dean Heller Running for Ensign's Seat

 Now that disgraced Senator John Ensign has announced that he is not running for another term, the field is opening up. Potential candidates include both Congressman Joe Heck and failed Senate candidate Sharron Angle. One that has already gotten into the fray is Congressman Dean Heller.

Heller, a four-term Republican, will attempt to win election in a state that put Harry Reid back in the Senate last year, despite the Republican wave.

The Democrats are looking at a weak field to try and take the open seat:

No Democrat has yet jumped in the Senate race, although Rep. Shelley Berkley is said to be considering a bid. Former Rep. Dina Titus, who lost her swing district to Republican Joe Heck in November, and Reid’s son, Rory, who faltered in his campaign for governor last year, could also be interested.
 It looks like it will be interesting. The Republicans (unless they nominate Angle) have a good shot.
