Sharron Angle on possible 2012 run: 'No, I'm not'

Angle set to visit two early primary states

(CNN) - Sharron Angle, the long-shot Tea Party-backed candidate who almost defeated Senate Majority Leady Harry Reid in last year's midterm elections, is hitting the road this week and it looks like another election may be on her mind.

Angle will be making stops in two early and important 2012 primary states this month for viewings of a Christian movie entitled "The Genesis Code," which is described by the producers as a film that "reconciles the Biblical account of Genesis with the scientific account of the origins of the universe."

Angle beats back criticism in Arizona shooting aftermath

Washington (CNN) – In the aftermath of the Arizona shootings, some critics have accused Republican Sharron Angle of spewing potentially dangerous political rhetoric in her recent bid for Nevada's Senate seat. Now, Angle is responding: releasing a statement on Wednesday that denounces any form of violence - and calls the criticism of her dangerous.

"I condemn all acts of violence. The despicable act in Tucson is a horrifying and senseless tragedy, and should be condemned as a single act of violence, by a single unstable individual," Angle said in the statement.
