The always fun game of political musical chairs has begun following this morning’s news (brought to you right here) that Congressman Dean Heller has told multiple sources he will indeed be running to become Nevada’s next junior Senator.
Two sources confirm that former state senator and current Republican state party chairman, Mark Amodei, will resign and announce a run for NV-2 once Dean Heller formally announces for Senate, which is expected to occur as early as next week.
Amodei is one of as many as a dozen Nevada Republicans who are eyeing Heller’s congressional seat. Expect others to announce in the 24-48 hours following Heller’s press conference.
I’ll post ‘em as I get ‘em confirmed, Dear Readers.
