LAS VEGAS Former U.S. Senate contender Sharron Angle is making another run for Congress.

The Republican announced in a YouTube video Wednesday that she will run for one of Nevada’s four U.S. House seats in 2012 to “stop the liberal agenda.”

Angle lost a Senate bid to Sen. Harry Reid in November. But the election helped to make her a leader within the tea party. She raised $14 million in one fundraising quarter and has traveled to Republican rallies in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Angle previously ran for the House in 2006, but lost to Republican Rep. Dean Heller. He announced Tuesday that he’ll run for Sen. John Ensign’s seat.

Angle and her campaign didn’t immediately respond telephone messages.
