Heller announces for Senate, takes shots at Obama, TARP and spending

In a statement teeming with conservative shibboleths, Rep. Dean Heller announced his candidacy this morning for U.S. Sen. John Ensign's seat in an email to supporters. Heller has been widely expected to run since he released a poll a few weeks ago showing him crushing Ensign, who announced his retirement last week.

The email is at right.

Heller will appear on "Face to Face" this evening.
