  • Todd Akin a Tea Partyer? Not So Much.

    Slate ^ | David Weigel
    Vox attempts to explain the media narrative of the day—that "the Tea Party will lose three primaries"—but this is a subject that defies simple Voxplaining. Here was the original lede: After some Twitter-shaming, the article has been edited and the "Tea Party" candidates are now called "right wing." That's a blander term that covers basically everyone who irritates the Republican Party's establishment. Still, the back-of-hand calculation that "the GOP would control the Senate today if not for the Tea Party" has never seemed right to me. Below, I've ranked the candidates mentioned by Vox. No. 5 had the least claim...

He is a strong fiscal and social conservative who stands on principles above politics. He has never wavered in his support for family values understanding the impact that strong families have on a prosperous economy.

    Mr. McCain mocked Tea Party-allied Republicans in the House for believing — wrongly, he said — that President Obama and Democrats will get the blame for a default if Republicans refuse to increase the nation’s debt ceiling. By that flawed logic, “Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements and the Tea Party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth,” he said, quoting a Wall Street Journal editorial. “This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into G.O.P. nominees,” he jeered, referring to two losing Tea Party...

    Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who won re-election to his Senate seat nearly two weeks ago in a tight race against Republican challenger Sharron Angle, has decided to not take the high road. Instead, he has decided to be completely smug, showing voters that Angle was, all along, right about his elitism. To see his egotism, all one has to do is take a look at his campaign site. In an article on his campaign site entitled, "Harry Reid’s near-perfect game plan makes victory look like child’s play," Reid gives himself a nice pat on the back. The article,...

    National Legal & Policy Center ^ | November 11, 2010 | Carl Horowitz
      Votes without voters - the notion seems like something from "The Twilight Zone." Yet this outcome, the result of a mysterious computer glitch, may have helped re-elect Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid over his Republican challenger, Sharron Angle, last week by a 50.2%-44.6% margin. Actually, the "mystery" is very likely the doing of a local of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which nationwide provides votes, money and muscle for the Democratic Party. Critics are charging that voting machines throughout Clark County (Las Vegas), where about three-fourths of the state's population resides, were rigged to place check marks next...

    While public polling generally gave a good projection of what to expect around the country in Election 2010, that was not the case in Nevada. Rasmussen Reports' final poll on the race showed Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid trailing by four points and the Real Clear Politics average showed the Democratic incumbent down by 2.7 points. When the dust settled, however, Reid won by 5.6 percentage points. After every election, polling firms review the things that went well and those that didn’t to learn and make modifications. In this process, Nevada seems like an ideal place to start. That’s especially...

    Tea party-backed candidates helped and hindered Republicans, injecting enthusiasm into campaigns but losing Senate seats held by Democrats in Delaware, Colorado and Nevada that the GOP once had big hopes of capturing. Republican leaders and strategists are muttering that the same tea party activists who elevated Speaker-to-be John Boehner and the party to power in the House simultaneously hobbled the GOP's outside shot of running the Senate. Tea partiers largely spurned establishment candidates in the GOP primaries and helped nominate Christine O'Donnell in Delaware, Sharron Angle in Nevada and Ken Buck in Colorado. All three lost on Tuesday. "You let...

    Harry Reid’s victory over Sharron Angle this past Tuesday may have had a great deal to do with the senator’s campaign breaking not only federal campaign law, but, just to make things worse, criminal law also. According to the Justice Department itself, as recently as this past Friday, it is currently looking over a complaint that Angle’s lawyer has filed, demanding that Reid be investigated for what appears to be coordination between his campaign and a corporation, Harrah’s casino in Las Vegas. The complaint is based on damning e-mails that were exchanged between executives at Harrah’s casino and a staffer...

    The Justice Department is reviewing a complaint from failed Republican Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle after allegations that Sen. Harry Reid's campaign engaged in voter intimidation and broke campaign finance law in his re-election campaign. Laura Sweeney, a spokeswoman for the Justice Department, told FoxNews.com on Friday that the department is reviewing the complaint filed by an attorney for Angle that followed a National Review report about internal e-mails among Harrah's casino executives and a campaign staffer for Reid. The e-mails appear to show the group orchestrating an effort to push Harrah employees to get out and vote for Reid.

    The fear and loathing after defeat in Las Vegas don't mask the reality that Sharron Angle's campaign was just not top notch. The reasons for Sharron Angle’s loss to Harry Reid in a GOP surge year, when other conservative candidates like Rand Paul of Kentucky and Joe Walsh of Illinois won victories, are not rooted in strategy. Nor are they rooted in a flawed ideology that was too conservative. Instead, the loss was a product of simple logistical failures by the Angle campaign, failures they often were unwilling or unable to understand.“Amateurs talk about strategy. Professionals talk about logistics,” said...

    Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., may have beaten back challenger Sharron Angle and retained his post as the majority leader, but his campaign and one of his biggest supporters may have violated federal law to do so. As National Review reported earlier this week, the Reid campaign sent a desperate e-mail to the senior vice president for government relations at Harrah's Casinos asking the company to pressure its employees to get out and vote for Reid. The campaign even offered to have Reid call Harrah's executives to help give "the backing" needed to get the company working on this. The Reid...

    Las Vegas (AP) - Republicans said for months that if the Nevada Senate race was a referendum on Harry Reid, the unpopular Majority Leader would lose. Reid didn't let that happen. He adeptly painted opponent Sharron Angle as an extremist immediately after she won her primary -- and proceeded to make the contest as much about her awkward and unconventional statements as Reid's own troubles. Then he deployed his secret weapon: a powerful turnout machine that brought Democratic and Hispanic voters out to the polls in droves. Reid's relentless TV ad assault against Angle and his powerful get-out-the-vote effort were...

Reid said he didn’t think we should be using “words like chastened.” Instead, we need to be working together, he said. Reid wound up with a 50%-45% victory over Sharron Angle. Going into the Election, Reid had trailed Angle in the last eight polls...

    I put some effort into compiling this data and hope it may help prove, with hard data, that the Nevada "election" was not a one-legal-citizen, one-vote affair. I believe the Angle campaign has a case based on a comparison of the accuracy of polling of other races with that of their own, where the result was well outside the MOE of an aggregate of polls. Off one pull fine. Off seven by a wide margin, not kosher. The first data points (EXHIBIT A) are from a sampling of races and the poll aggregates leading up to election day. The second...

Preliminary figures show Republicans turned out 37 percent of early voters in traditionally Democratic Clark County, several points above the party's registration.

You may think it is logical that Reid would at least try to promote the things he has said that he has done for Nevada. Nope. The entire article is a vicious attack piece against Angle, full of lies, mis-characterizations, and desperation. The very first sentence, in fact, ends with this statement...

    Republican Sharron Angle famously told Sen. Harry Reid to "man up" during a Nevada debate this month -- the implication being that Reid is a wuss, or not man enough to do his job. You'll get no argument from me, but I did note Reid didn't fire back at his opponent. That's because feminists have taught him well. When faced with whether or not to make a disparaging remark about the female gender, most men know to keep their mouths shut. In politics today, women can do and say whatever they want about the opposite sex, but men can't do...

    NMAWorldEdition — October 27, 2010 — http://www.nma.tv/ The contest is close for Nevada's senate seat, a race that pits Majority Leader Harry Reid against Tea Party challenger Sharron Angle.

The anti-abortion candidate also said rape and incest victims should make lemonade out of a lemon situation. Despite her seeming missteps, Angle has...

    Why a vote for Sharron Angle could steer Senate to the leftConservatives’ effort to oust Reid might result in more liberal action on weighty Nevada issues By Karoun Demirjian Thursday, Oct. 28, 2010 | 2:01 a.m. While Republican Sharron Angle has called Harry Reid a liberal voice for special interests, it is Angle who may become the best friend of liberals in Washington should she defeat the majority leader. As the Senate’s top-ranking Democrat, Reid serves a dual role in Washington: representative of Nevada and chief driver of the Senate agenda. Take Reid away and there will be a new...
