Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.), a pro-Israel stalwart, will run for Nevada’s United States Senate seat.

Berkley (D-Nev.), who is seen as the most pro-Israel member of Congress, made her decision Thursday after months of dropping hints, according to a tweet by Jon Ralston, a political reporter for the Las Vegas Sun.

Berkley is considered a strong candidate, with an ability to bring in Republican voters because of her credentials as a hard-liner on foreign policy.

Rep. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) already has declared his bid to replace the scandal-plagued Sen. John Ensign, a Republican, who is retiring in 2012.
