Heller announces bid for Ensign's seat in Nevada

(CNN)- Nevada Rep. Dean Heller told supporters Tuesday he intends to run for the seat being vacated by scandal-plagued Sen. John Ensign, a boost to national Republicans who view Heller as the best hope to keep the seat under GOP control.

"I know that the tough times are not yet over. However, I also know that there are better times ahead," wrote Heller in a Tuesday-morning e-mail to supporters. "Together we can move our country in a new direction, get Nevadans working again, and create a more prosperous future for us and our children."
