Former State Sen. Ann O’Connell endorses Mark Amodei for Senate
Former State Sen. Ann O’Connell endorsed Carson City Republican Mark Amodei in his bid to take Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate seat.
O’Connell, who opposed any tax increases throughout her 20-year Senate career, cited Amodei’s
four-year legislative career as key to her support.
“At this critical juncture in our nation’s history, the U.S. Senate is no place for on-the-job training,” she said.
In addition to the endorsement, O’Connell said she has agreed to be Amodei’s finance chairwoman for the campaign.
Amodei, who is leaving the Nevada Senate after
12 years because of term limits, is one of a dozen Republicans in the primary seeking to challenge Reid.
