Nevada News Round-up

Senate

  • It has often been said it is virtually impossible to get to the right of Sharron Angle on any issue, nevermind guns. Apparently a Democratic candidate for the state assembly has managed to do it, though. So says the NRA, who also endorsed 14 other Democratic candidates in Nevada.

  • NYT headline says Reid is a “source of anguish” even in his hometown of Searchlight.

  • Nate Silver has upped Sharron Angle’s odds of winning to 76 percent based on recent polls showing her up by two to four points. Some of these samples are a little shaky, though, based on likely turnout ratios. Pollsters and prognosticators should beware.

  • Were Angle’s comments here really that shocking or was she just talking about the absence of the virtue of charity and how government has replaced community and the family as a person’s first safety net?

  • “The View” personality Joy Behar yesterday continued her rant against Sharron Angle after receiving a thank you note and lovely bouquet of flowers for her remarks on Monday. Angle last night reported that donations were still flowing in. Keep jawing, Joy.

House

  • Republican hopeful Dr. Joe Heck is quoted in a McClatchy piece on health care reform. “From a medical standpoint, the entire bill isn’t bad,” he said, and has said the same in recent debates with his opponent Dina Titus. 

  • The DCCC is going after Heck hard on a medical issue.

Governor

  • Rory has raised $1.9 million since may and $6.3 million total for the year. He is also down 10 to 20 points in every poll, proving money can’t always buy you love — especially when your last name is Reid.

  • So, so much for the dynasty.

Other

  • Robocalls in the wee hours are not the way to voters’ hearts. Looks like that phone number (shared with me by a voter in Churchill County) is being used for other liberal/Democrat calls, too.
