LAS VEGAS - Rep. Shelley Berkley is charging ahead in her bid for a U.S. Senate seat, even as her main rival prepares to take the post in an unprecedented appointment.

Berkley says Nevada voters have a clear choice between her and Rep. Dean Heller in the 2012 election.

Gov. Brian Sandoval said Wednesday Heller would replace resigning Sen. John Ensign, giving Heller the advantage of incumbency heading into next year's Senate race.

But Berkley isn't backing down. She is expected to share her campaign strategy in a press event Thursday morning.

Meanwhile, Heller's move to the Senate will require Nevada to host its first special election for a House seat.

Officials are reviewing state election law, leaving a field of candidates unsure about whether they will make the ballot.
