  • Sharron Angle to make encore bid for Reid's Senate seat

    Associated Press ^ | Mar 18, 2016 7:54 PM EDT | Michelle Rindels
    Nevada conservative Sharron Angle, who lost a high-profile bid to oust Democratic Sen. Harry Reid in 2010, filed paperwork Friday to make an encore run for his soon-to-be-vacant U.S. Senate seat. The tea party darling said she registered in Carson City after months of testing the water and hinting at a possible bid. Her move adds another primary opponent for the Republican frontrunner, three-term Rep. Joe Heck, and could throw a wrench in Republicans’ hopes to claim the seat over Reid’s endorsed candidate, former Democratic Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. […] Democrats have salivated over the prospect of Angle entering...

    Sharron Angle, who was vilified for running against Harry Reid in 2010 as a Tea Party conservative, is considering a comeback now that Harry Reid, having suffered a political black eye by losing the Senate, is retiring in 2016. The only problem is that she would have to run against the establishment-backed GOP candidate, Joe Heck. Joe Heck gets an "F" from like Harry Reid! He voted to fully fund Planned Parenthood's baby chop shops, voted to give Obama fast-track trade authority, voted against killing Obama's illegal amnesty for aliens, and voted to support keeping John Boehner as speaker,...

    Last week, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush announced his intention to "actively explore" a run for president. That announcement spurred spasms of joy in some segments of the Republican Party who have been itching for an effective counter to the enthusiasm of the grassroots right. Those Republicans -- largely coastal donors who scorn social conservatives as rubes, and shun the supposed fiscal extremism of the tea party -- have been searching for a candidate who will buck the base on immigration, who doesn't mind hand-in-glove corporatism, and who, most of all, feels the same way they do about the grassroots....

    When Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin went on television last weekend and uttered the words "legitimate rape," veterans of the Sharron Angle campaign had a collective flashback, PTSD-style. Angle, the Republican Senate candidate who ran against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in 2010, is best remembered for out-there statements like suggesting that "Second Amendment remedies" might be necessary to restore liberty. Her loss to Reid helped ensure that the GOP would fall short of the Senate majority in the midterm elections. Angle's candidacy is a case study in the ability of a deeply flawed candidate to squander an otherwise winnable...

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...

Lavishing praise on younger Americans, he added, “And I think that’s a generalization and I’ll stick with it. I think younger people do not see race as an obstacle.” He then touted the “non-judgmental” attitude of Obama voters, fawning, “In fact, they say [race is] irrelevant and don’t even notice it, whereas older people notice it all the time.” If “older white people” are focused on race, Matthews could certainly be...

He’s also a vicious bigot, and because he’s elderly and a military veteran, the Left is going to fall in love with him.

It just so happens he’s blaming the likes of Sharron Angle and Sarah Palin for being responsible for the massacre. During the interview he also tries to explain how he’s not politicizing the situation. Automatically placing blame on ‘right-wing rhetoric’ seems as if it pretty much fits the bill for politicization of a tragedy.

    It’s widely recognized that in the marquee 2010 Senate race, Majority Leader Harry Reid ran a nearly flawless, textbook campaign, an operation so extraordinary that it enabled him to defy an almost certain political death. It turns out he got some inadvertent inside help. Interviews with Nevada and Washington Republicans familiar with the campaign of Reid’s GOP opponent, Sharron Angle, describe a not-ready-for-prime-time effort that was equally astonishing — a model of dysfunction that was as bad as Reid’s campaign was good. At the center of it was Terry Campbell, Angle’s closest adviser, who held the title of campaign manager....

Otherwise, these were the people that would have steered her campaign.

    At their new political high-water mark, Republicans have plenty of reasons to celebrate - and at least one large cause for worry. On Election Day, voters shattered the Obama agenda of expanded public benefits and increased income tax progressivity, leaving the president to reassemble his goals with glue and tape. During this midterm cycle, Republicans became reacquainted with estranged friends: independents, seniors, college-educated voters, working-class voters, rural voters and suburban voters. The Republican Party will benefit from the infusion of diverse, attractive new leaders, including some, such as Florida Sen.-elect Marco Rubio, with Tea Party pedigrees.

    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...

    UPDATE: Americans for Limited Government have jumped on this issue and are pushing the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Nevada State Attorney General to get to the bottom of it, and now: It is positively outrageous that in Clark County, Nevada, the SEIU Local 1107, which supports Harry Reid, controls the ballot boxes by contract through their representation of the voting machine technicians. It is not surprising that Senator Harry Reid’s name was automatically checked off on the ballot when individuals went to vote. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Nevada State Attorney General, and the U.S Marshalls need to act...

    Sharron Angle has been improving her position in our forecast in recent days, and for the first time since the spring has better than a three-in-four chance to win against Harry Reid, according to the FiveThirtyEight model. Angle’s odds improved today on the strength of a CNN poll showing her 4 points ahead of Reid. The lead, while slight, is her largest since January in a poll from a firm other than Rasmussen Reports. Moreover, CNN’s poll, unlike some others, included Nevada’s unique option for none-of-these-candidates in their poll, as well as the name of Scott Ashijan, running under the...

    The female candidates, commentators and influencers who matter--and provoke chatter--most. The midterm elections are a week away, and this year an overwhelming number of female candidates, commentators and influencers are commanding the headlines, brashly driving the conversation and laboring to deliver who will control the Senate, the House and the future direction of the country. The forces that put us in this position come in the form of various political baronesses and upstarts that make up this Top 25 Power Women of Elections 2010. A great many of these mighty women appear on Forbes' list of The World's 100 Most...

    Republican Sharron Angle has surged to a four point lead in the Nevada Senate race, leading Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) 49 percent to 45 percent, according to new polling. The CNN/Time poll, released Wednesday, is particularly striking because it is the first public, live caller poll conducted in the Senate race in about two weeks. In previous polls, Reid and Angle had been in a statistical dead heat.
  • Watchdog Warns SEIU Contract for Nevada Voting Machines Poses 'Fraud' Concern

    A conservative watchdog group is calling on Nevada officials to intervene to ensure SEIU workers who operate one county's voting machines don't skew the results to boost their endorsed candidate, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. A contract between SEIU Local 1107 and Clark County -- where voting glitches were reported Tuesday -- makes the SEIU the sole union representative for, among other professions, voting machine technicians.

    So says Cleta Mitchell, the same woman who tried to get Scott Ashjian, the Tea Party of Nevada candidate out of the race, in an astonishing fundraising letter: As Sharron Angle's campaign attorney, I am sorry to report that the Democrats and their cronies are up to their same old tricks, of trying to manipulate the election in hopes of skewing the results in their favor. Two days ago, the Democratic Secretary of State announced that voters can be provided "free food" at "voter turnout events." Harry Reid has been offering free food and, according to other reports, some Democratic...

    …neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us fromt eh LOVE of God that is n Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 8:39 Joyless Bihar goes off on Sharon Angle because she dares to tell the truth about Harry Reid.

Why should this “bitch” go to hell? Why don’t...
  • Attack-Dog Joy Behar Picks Wrong Crusade (her foul-mouthed attacks are helping Sharron Angle)

    American Thinker ^ | 10/27/2010 | Kyle-Anne Shiver
    During the president's recent appearance on the televised female coffee klatch, The View, he suggested that Joy Behar become the "attack dog" she said he needed to fight back against conservatives.  And Ms. Behar seems to have taken the idea to heart. When the producers played a Sharon Angle ad, which made moral mincemeat out of Harry Reid's illegal immigration enabling positions, Ms. Behar responded with attack-dog fury.  Behaving as the uncivil shrew that she has more and more lately become, Ms. Behar responded to the Angle ad by declaring the candidate a "bitch" who was surely "going to hell."...
