DescriptionFor the victor of the congressional special election next month, the thrill of the win may be short-lived.

If Democrat Kate Marshall wins, she’ll be sure to face a concerted GOP effort to oust her in 2012 and could face new district lines that would make it even more difficult for a Democrat in the heavily Republican district.

If Republican Mark Amodei wins, he could be ripe for a primary challenge by a more conservative candidate who would hammer him before a singularly Republican audience for his support of tax increases and collective bargaining rights for state workers.

Enter Sharron Angle.

The ultraconservative perennial candidate who gained national prominence but suffered a spectacular defeat in her race against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada last year has shown no indication she’s willing to forgo the ballot next year.
