Rep. Berkley to run for the Senate

Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.) has decided to run for retiring Sen. John Ensign’s (R-Nev.) seat.

She made the announcement in a statement Thursday morning.

“Nevadans know me and they know I will never stop working on behalf of our state, standing up for veterans, creating opportunities for our children, fighting to end Yucca Mountain and helping our economy recover by putting people back to work. There is so much at stake in this election for Nevada. And that is why I have decided to run for the U.S. Senate and work to build a stronger future for our state,” she said.
