Former Nevada U.S. Attorney Running in Special Election for Open House Seat

Former Nevada U.S. Attorney Gregory Brower is running in the special election for the House seat that is vacant now that Rep. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), has been appointed to the Senate, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Brower, a Republican, filed paperwork to run for Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, which covers most of the state and includes Reno and part of Las Vegas. Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) appointed Heller to serve  the remainder of outgoing Republican Sen. John Ensign’s term, which ends January 2013. Ensign announced his resignation last week. The special House election has not yet been scheduled.

“As a proud Republican, I am excited and humbled to enter the race for CD2.,” Brower said, according to KOLOTV.com. “I do not take this step lightly and want to be very clear that I am in this important race to win. I believe Nevada is best represented by a strong conservative voice in Washington, DC, and I am committed to see that we have it.”

Brower served as U.S. Attorney from 2007 until 2009. He became U.S. Attorney after U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden was fired along with eight other U.S. Attorneys in late 2006.

He has served in the state Senate since January, representing Reno.
