CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Another candidate has thrown their hat in the ring for the job of lieutenant governor.

Republican Sue Lowden announced her bid this morning, saying she’d make the part-time position her full-time job if elected.

She is former Chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party and a former State Senator in Nevada.  Lowden ran for her party’s nomination in the 2010 race U.S. Senate, but was defeated by Sharron Angle.

Gov. Brian Sandoval has already endorsed another Republican, State Sen. Mark Hutchison, in the race, which could be a springboard into the governor’s mansion.
