  • This is rich. The Harry Reid campaign criticizes Sharron Angle for “influence-peddling.” But doesn’t Reid’s argument for staying in office center on the fact that he is the most powerful, influential politician Nevada has ever had?

  • Angle visited Laughlin, NV, to talk issues this week. Here’s a pic.

  • The NRSC is having a big $5,000 per head fundraiser today. The event is hosted by Cornyn (TX) and Thune (SD) who will be collecting cash for Ayotte (NH), Boozman (AR), Coats (IN), Rossi (WA), Rubio (FL), and Angle (NV).

  • Jonathan Martin writes about the unprecedented shielding of candidates from the press, including gaffe-prone Reid and Angle.
