Nevada Senate: Reid vs Angle
Whoa there, Silver. We’ve profiled Nevada’s hang-‘em-high Senate race several times. So here’s the latest rundown of the dust-kicking between Democrat incumbent Harry Reid and Republican challenger Sharron Angle. President Obama was in Las Vegas Thursday night, saying how much he now loves the place and also the Senate Majority Leader, who was being targeted by Republicans nationally.Harry Reid
In late afternoon radio interview, Angle takes her statement that "I am not in the business of creating jobs” for Nevadans to a whole new level: Sharron Angle Says She Wouldn’t Have Fought to Save CityCenter, 22k Jobs
Sharron Angle's pre-scrub website memorialized online...now permanently. After 24 hours of caution following frivolous legal threats to censor our free speech, Democrats resurrect Angle’s website with her truly-held views
Reid Re-Reposts Angle’s Old Website—Even After Threat Of Lawsuit. Harry Reid isn't letting....
...threats of a lawsuit stop him -- he's sticking with his Web campaign against "the real Sharron Angle." After the Angle campaign sent the Reid camp a cease-and-desist letter.
Sharron Angle Doubles Down on Opposition to UI, Demonstrates Total Ignorance of Nevada Law. More embarrassingly, Angle confusingly explains a “plan” to reform unemployment insurance that’s the same as the status quoSharron Angle: Separation of Church & State is Not Constitutional
As Senate Takes Up Small Business Jobs Bill, Angle Continues to Hide From Mainstream Media. How would Angle vote? She won’t speak to the media, but has repeatedly said it’s not her job to fight for NV jobs
Favorite quote of the day "Reid this fall will likely follow Obama's lead, and falsely paint himself as the scourge of the special interests -- all on the drug lobby's dime"
Washington Insider Harry Reid and his lobby $$$$, business as usual http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/Drug-lobby-showers-money-on-its-hero-Harry-Reid-97882064.html
Tax & Spend @harryreid passes HC bill that will increase Americans' cost - then takes $ from drug lobbyists http://ow.ly/28dBG #nvsen #tcot

Nevada now leads the nation in unemployment. Is there any doubt we're heading in the wrong direction with Harry Reid?
California governor: Brown vs Whitman
The much-anticipated race to fill Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office pits very longtime veteran Democrat politician – and former governor -- Jerry Brown against newcomer Meg Whitman, former CEO of eBay and GOP establishment favorite.
Both sides made it known early that they were prepared to go negative, with Whitman using her personal wealth to generate attack ads on Brown’s long, long record and Brown responding characteristically caustically. Many such attacks came via social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.Jerry Brown
That was not an earthquake California. Meg Whitman just dropped her wallet.
