Amodei will replace Republican Dean Heller who was appointed from the House to the Senate in May 2011 to replace Republican John Ensign who resigned in scandal.
Amodei easily bested Democrat Kate Marshall Tuesday in the rural Nevada district that has never elected a Democrat.
Amodei is a former state GOP chairman. He promised to fight for a balanced budget amendment in Congress and signed an anti-tax pledge.
Amodei was elected in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District to replace Republican Dean Heller. Heller was appointed from the House to the Senate in May to replace Republican John Ensign. Ensign resigned over a sex scandal.
