RENO — U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Nev., announced he will run for re-election in 2018.

The Las Vegas Sun reports Amodei said Tuesday on “Nevada Newsmakers” that he considered the options and decided on a bid for re-election.

Amodei flirted with the possibility of running for either governor or attorney general.

Amodei first said publicly he was thinking about running for statewide office in August, although he always left the door open to return to Congress.

The former state assemblyman, senator and chairman of the Nevada Republican Party was first elected to Congress in 2011.
