Angle: “Harry Reid still rules the US Senate” and that’s why I’m running for Congress

So says the vanquished 2010 U.S. Senate candidate in an email today announcing her candidacy. It's below, along with a YouTube video announcement:

Harry Reid still rules the US Senate, holding up government spending cuts and other legislation passed by the Republican majority in the House. Nancy Pelosi still organizes the Democrats, working her hardest to keep funding Planned Parenthood and NPR.

Ralston Flash, the job still needs doing.

We can't simply celebrate our victories from 2010. Once again, we face a determined opponent who won't give ground. The Obama administration still plans on running a TRILLION dollar deficit. The Democrats in Congress still plan on implementing their gigantic bureaucratic takeover of our health care system.

Ralston Flash, the job still needs doing.

That's why I am announcing today that I will be running for the US House in Nevada's 2nd Congressional district. The job still needs doing, and I won't stand by and wait for someone else to do it.

In 2012, we will have an opportunity to put an end to these dangerous policies. We can preserve our Republican majority in the House and win a new majority in the Senate. We can defeat a President intent on spreading the influence of government to every part of our lives. Now is our opportunity.

I won't back down when the stakes are so high and when the job needs doing.

As we get things started again for 2012, I'll need your help. I'll need you to tell your friends, go door to door, make phone calls and send emails.

But for now I need just one thing. Turn the energy that changed the direction of our country in 2010 to another election.

With your help we can once again change the country's direction like we started in 2010. Thank you for your support!
