"The tea party movement stood with me through a hard fought race against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid," Angle said in a statement. "It's time for me to give back and help our movement take the fight against big government to a new level."

Team Angle did not immediately respond to TPM's requests for comment.

Correction: The Patriot Caucus is not new, as this post originally suggested, but Angle's involvement with it is.
