(CNN) - Sharron Angle, the Tea Party-backed underdog who in last year's midterm election came close to defeating Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, may be setting her sights on another high profile political job.
Speaking at a premiere for a conservative Christian movie in Iowa Wednesday night, the Nevada Republican would not rule out a run for president, saying only, "I have lots of options for the future, and I'm investigating all my options," according to the Des Moines Register.
Angle was speaking to Iowa caucus-goers and grassroots workers who gathered for a sneak preview of "The Genesis Code," a film that "reconciles the Biblical account of Genesis with the scientific account of the origins of the universe," according to a press release.
But while the Tea Party favorite's presidential ambitions are far from certain, Angle has already signaled that she plans to play a pivotal role in the 2012 elections.
Angle announced plans last month for a political action committee (PAC) aimed at helping Tea Party candidates in 2012 races. Her "Patriot Caucus" will open offices in crucial presidential battleground states, including Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida and Nevada.
