On June 18, the Nevada Republican Party held a nominating convention and chose Mark Amodei as its nominee for U.S. House, in the September 2011 special election in the 2nd district. The Democrats will hold a similar convention on June 25. The Independent American Party will also hold a nominating convention. However, no one yet knows if the convention nominees will be on the ballot as the sole nominee of that party, or not. The Nevada Supreme Court will be deciding that issue soon.
