LAS VEGAS (AP) - Tea party favorite Sharron Angle says she is running as a Republican in Nevada's first-of-its-kind special election to replace U.S. Rep. Dean Heller.
Angle told supporters Friday she needs to raise $150,000 immediately to win the seat.
Heller is heading to the Senate to replace resigning U.S. Sen. John Ensign.
This will be Nevada's first special election for a House seat. There will be no primary under state law and the rules about how candidates should file for the general election remain unclear.

Angle told supporters she was initially unprepared to challenge
Reid because he had more campaign cash.
She says that won't happen again.
