Sharron Angle in the House?

Slate reports that former U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle (R-NV) will run for the Second District House seat being vacated by Rep. Dean Heller (R-NV).  Heller is running to replace retiring Senator John Ensign (R-NV).

Should she be successful, Angle may find the House a better fit than the Senate because of the lower chamber’s greater maneuverability for colorful members.

Senate Votes for Trial Lawyers
Posted by Print

The Senate, currently debating health care, held a rare Sunday session.  Beyond the normal bloviating, Senators did take at least one consequential vote.

John Ensign (R-NV) introduced an amendment that would have limited trial lawyer contingency fee amounts in medical malpractice cases.  Predictably, the amendment was overwhelmingly voted down, 32-66.

It appears that the trial lawyer lobby remains strong in the Senate.
