Defeated Nevada 2010 U.S. Senate candidate Sue Lowden was sued again Wednesday over allegations she and her campaign failed to pay about $78,000 to a Denver polling and public affairs company.

Vitale & Associates LLC filed suit in federal court in Las Vegas against Lowden.

Lowden was defeated in the Republican primary by Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle, who went on to lose to incumbent Democratic Sen. Harry Reid.

Wednesday's suit says Lowden "promised to personally pay all campaign debts" but has failed to pay Vitale & Associates.

A request for comment was placed with Lowden.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Denver Post reported in 2011 that Vitale & Associates had sued Lowden for the $78,000 in Colorado state court in Denver.

That case was dismissed when a judge found Vitale and Lowden didn't have sufficient dealings in Colorado for that court to have jurisdiction.
