Amodei: no Senate run, but maybe Gov. or AG

Nevada Appeal staff report

U.S. Representative Mark Amodei of Carson City told the Reno Gazette-Journal on Friday he wouldn’t run for the U.S. Senate, saying his future political plans would likely eventually be on the state level.

The Republican Congressman said he’s committed to running for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2016. That essentially would rule out a run to fill Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate seat in Nevada. Reid is retiring after this term, so he will leave his seat vacant, which will be up for re-election in 2018.

As far as his plans for 2018, Amodei said he may consider a run to be Nevada’s governor or the state’s attorney general. Amodei added he eventually wants to return to Carson City when it comes to any possible future political plans after 2016.
