  • Huntsman’s family gave nearly $25,000 to Reid last cycle

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who said this week he prefers Jon Huntsman to Mitt Romney in the GOP Mormon presidential primary, has taken a lot of money from the Huntsman family, and the former Utah governor appointed Reid’s son, Josh, to Utah’s Board of Regents. So no wonder Reid said Tuesday, “If I had a choice in that race, I’d choose Huntsman over Romney.”

    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...

    CNS News ^ | Michael R Blood
    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...

Looks like we could have ballot stuffin, machine riggin, vote fraud by the unions and the corrupt Reid machine. We need to look closely at Nevada and call Reid's "win" into question. We may be able to reverse the results and/or delegitamize him so much that we can at least force him out of as "Pseudo-Majority" Leader and force a fight with in the Rat party

    LAS VEGAS — At polling places across Nevada Tuesday, researchers conducting exit polls asked voters one fundamental question about Harry Reid: Do you approve or disapprove of the way he has handled his job as senator? The results were terrible for the Senate Majority Leader. Fifty-five percent of voters disapproved of the job he has done, while 44 percent approved. Such numbers might seem a sure indicator of defeat, and yet by Tuesday night, Reid was leading his supporters in a victory celebration. The exit pollsters also asked whether Reid, running for a fifth term in the Senate, has been...

    11/02/2010 8:51:05 PM PDT · by jern · 20 replies
    We've finally gotten some votes in from Nevada. They're early ballots, it looks like, and they're from Clark County, home to three-quarters of the state's population, where Harry Reid has a roughly 12-point lead over Sharron Angle. By contrast, Barack Obama won Clark County by 19 points in 2008, when he won Nevada by 12.5 points over all. If you extrapolate those numbers -- the Democrat performs 6-7 points worse in the whole of Nevada as he does in Clark County -- it suggests that a 12-point margin in Clark County would probably be enough for Mr. Reid to carry...

Supervisors were instructed to track down employees who hadn't voted and find out why, according to e-mails obtained by reporter and conservative blogger Elizabeth Crum.

The “tea party” movement was zeroing in on him as representative of all that’s wrong with big-government politics back in Washington. And it looked like any of his likely GOP opponents could beat the four-term incumbent in November. Shortly after Nevada Republicans chose former state assemblywoman Sharron Angle to run against Reid, the beleaguered Democrat was trailing his opponent by 11 percentage points in a Rasmussen Reports poll of likely Nevada voters.

Rather than giving any indication of her ideological beliefs, however, that fact may simply show her history of independence from the Republican party. In the 1990's, she belonged to a conservative third party. Angle won the Nevada GOP Senate primary this month, knocking out the establishment candidate to take on Senate Majority Leader...

    As late as eleven days before the Nevada primary the Washington Post desperately attempted to paint a smiley face on Harry Reid’s reelection possibilities. The liberal tabloid used a Mason-Dixon poll that compared Reid’s chances against the two Republicans THEY thought would were leading the race. The news was great for Harry. He was closer to either of them than he had been to that point! Over the next 11 days Sharron Angle, the Nevada TEA party’s candidate roared ahead and won going away. Putting on a brave face Reid said Angle was to opponent he wanted all along. Oh...

    Harry Reid’s allies finally found an accomplice to help quash the not-so-subtle whisper campaign about who will replace him as majority leader: his opponent, Sharron Angle. Now that Angle looks eminently beatable in the fall, Reid is being treated less like an eccentric old uncle on life support and more like a Senate majority leader with long-term staying power. In the private corridors of the Senate, the conversation has already shifted. Instead of gossiping about how Sens. Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin might position themselves for majority leader, senators and aides who spoke with POLITICO are already asking different questions....

    (snip) Sen John McCain, R-AZ, said he is "confident" Angle is someone who can take down Reid "because the people of Nevada are tired of him," noting the leader's sustained, low approval ratings. There is certainly no love lost between McCain, the GOP nominee for president in 2008, and Reid, who verbally bashed the Arizonan during the rough and tumble campaign. McCain said he is happy to campaign for Angle, though her campaign has not yet asked. A confident McCain said simply, "She will."(snip)

    The Social Security wars are about to begin again. It is no secret that Harry Reid sees the road to his Senate re-election as running through Social Security. His opponent, former Assemblywoman Sharron Angle, supports proposals to allow younger workers to privately invest a portion of their Social Security taxes through personal accounts. Reid has been practically salivating at the prospect of portraying her as sentencing seniors to a life of eating cat food. In fact, just last week, Bill Clinton was in town attacking Angle for "wanting to get rid of Social Security." Social Security is certainly a fair-game...

    Carson City — Surging Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle has had to defend her support of a prison program that her opponents linked to Scientology. Trying to head off that theme, Angle has eliminated from her campaign website mention of prominent members of the church, whom she worked with on other legislative efforts. Angle has removed the claim that she, along with actresses Kelly Preston and Jenna Elfman, approached Sen. John Ensign to sponsor legislation prohibiting school employees from requiring students to take psychotropic drugs, such as anti-depressants. Preston and Elfman are high-profile members of the Church of Scientology, which...

    (AP) RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Republican mayor of Reno says the U.S. Senate candidate chosen this week by the Nevada GOP to take on Democrat Harry Reid is an "ultra right-winger" whom he cannot support. Mayor Bob Cashell says former state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle is "just too far to the right for me."
