Angle campaign private suite: "Reid never got above 46 percent of the vote and tonight he gets 51 percent? Ashjian and "none of the above" got less than 3 percent combined. Something fishy is going on."
UPDATE 3 -
I just met with two campaign people who said that Angle and her generals and her lawyers are huddling. They have not yet decided to concede. Campaign says that the gap between Reid and Angle is now down to 24,000 from 36,000 previously. "People's spirits up. Hope is not squashed," says one insider with the campaign.

I think it’s a GREAT time! We have momentum! The ball is in OUR court. Insert other catchy phrases here.
Fact of the matter is that even if an investigation finds that it was (unbelievably) legit, it will make it clear that we will not play the games anymore. Reid needs to see he is not untouchable. He needs to know, and the Democrats need to know, that we have their number.
Another seat we could have won with any other Republican. There were other good Republicans in the primary that would have easily beat Harry. So what have we learned?
Rove may be able to toss a few bucks her way. He owes us at least that after the way he bad-mouthed O’Donnell.
You’re playing what if? NOBODY was going to beat Harry. Never have, never will until somebody fights back
“So Sharon needs to show grace in defeat, concede, and work to make the party stronger in 2012.”
F that. It’s time to go for the jugular. It is wrong, deeply wrong, legally, morally, ethically, and in all other ways, to allow these serial felons, these domestic enemies of the constitution, to ponce about in public pretending that they are honorable.
They need to be dragged before the bar of justice to answer for their crimes. It should have been done long ago, but the pubbies are a pack of spineless wussies. Maybe these new women will show some courage.
Agreed. A set of protocols need to be written and a nationwide independent watchdog needs to be established. This is beyond ridiculous and continues to go unchecked!
Exactly. Reid got the opponent he wanted and the result he wanted. Dems got their butts kicked in Nevada except for this race...Reid’s own son lost.
There’s never been a better time. If there’s a reason America needs a Tea Party, this is it.
Son loses by 13% and Harry wins? No way. This is a scam. Repubs win all other races.
This race stinks to me as well - what is up with him giving an acceptance speech with only 58% of the precincts reporting. As I was watching it on FOX I was pissed that they would even call it and thought that Reid seemed a little to eager to claim victory.
LOL. Is that the narrative now? If the Dems cheated the electorat ethis much then why are Republicans doing so well across Nevada...except for this race.
I have heard Sharron talk. I have seen her campaign. She was not the best.
You do know Reid ran ads attacking Angle’s opponents in the primary. He wanted Angle to win the primary...for a reason.
you bet it was rigged. watch now, to see our own RINOs come out of the woodwork to congratulate Reid, and tell Angle to “move on”.
This is the problem with RINOs, they don’t fight tooth and nail. If this was a dem, they’d be paying millions for lawyers and challenging every vote, every machine, every illegal alien, challenging the SEIU repair men, etc.
Damn you RNC, get out there and back this woman!
We got a lot of fighting to do. We might as well get started right away.
Check the thread. They're already here.
You sound like you’re from Seattle!! Sharon shouldn’t concede — now way!
As I understand it, Sharon Angle and the Republicans have a basis for a lawsuit in Nevada.
There has been massive election fraud in that state.
There was an orchestrated effort by Harrahs management to intimidate and coerce its employees to vote for Harry Reid for the United States Senate.
These activities were demanded by one or more persons who work for Sen. Reid and it appears that Harrahs management has continually informed employees their concern with reelecting Harry Reid, and not just that employees go out and vote.
...Republican senate candidate Sharron Angles legal counsel (Mitchell) sent a letter to the Department of Justice today, requesting an investigation into whether the coordination between Democrat senate candidate Harry Reids campaigns and Harrahs revealed voter intimidation in violation of federal law.
Mitchell...had filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission last week about union intimidation of voters. That complaint noted that union employees had hung about polling locations while their members were inside voting, and had sometimes monitored inside the polling sites, actions which could potentially make union members feel intimidated.
This constitutes nothing less than a concerted scheme to violate the rights of Harrahs employees which clearly interferes with these employees rights to cast a secret ballot for the candidates of their choice,..This illegal, improper and heavy-handed intervention into the fundamental voting rights of Harrahs employees should be immediately investigated by the Department of Justice,..
I also hope that the Federal Elections Commission also looks into all those voting machines that kept coming up with Harry Reid already checked off the machines maintained by SEIU no less!!
I hope Harry Reid will be having a very, very interesting lame duck session in Congress this fall!
I believe that recounts can only be demanded if the vote is extremely close. That is the way it is in most places. The only thing that can happen here is for those who broke the law in vote buying/manipulation/ be prosecuted. The union activities in running the machines, must also be made illegal.
All across this country the mechanisms that are in place that make vote fraud so easy to commit need to be eliminated. Even the voter registration lists need to be purged and started from scratch with proof of citizenship required to be registered. The voting process in this country should be impeccably honest and reliable. If the republicans are worth anything then they need to set upon this task.
Care to have a drink to toast our progress first? I’m parched. All that cheering....
I saw he newscaster on Fox at the Reid camp and she was smiling and she said Reid was unpopular and had less than 50% and was not liked in Nevada but he managed to win it. My husband and I looked at each and thought what the hell is she listening to what she just said it did not add up it was so ridiculous it was funny.
