My syndicated column this week is on the Angle-Reid race. Here’s some of it:
Angle doesn’t have to run a Campaigns and Elections award-winning campaign to defeat him. As Doug Schoen, another Democrat, and co-author of the tea-party analysis Mad as Hell, puts it: “The movement that is backing Angle is more potent electorally at this point than is the mainstream Democratic party — or the Republicans, for that matter.”
Angle is a walking success story already. The tea party is about a “paradigm shift,” Anne Sorock of the tea-infused Sam Adams Alliance puts it. Nevada’s David-and-Goliath story vividly paints the picture of one. And it will be in bolder colors still if the Senate majority leader is, in fact, defeated.
