Dingy Harry Reid, meet Tiny Tommy Daschle.
Nevada voters: DO IT!!!
may they do the deal....
Send the boy home! It’s time.
An awful lot of deeply saddened there.
Could be bad news for the witch from the west. Who will she have to do photo ops with.
Well, we’d all be delighted to see the last of Dingy Harry.
Does anyone know where the two Republican possibilities stand? I’ve searched around, and can’t find much useful information about them.
Is ACORN in Nevada?
If yes, Reid will win.
Reid’s son is running for governor and he’s last of three candidates.
Two girl scouts with Nerf bats?
see ya Reid, wouldn’t want to be ya!
Maybe he can join that doddering old fool Bob Dole! You know old misfits never go home!
Here in maryland we are working hard to replace Steny Hoyer with a Conservative Republican. Charles Lollar.
I predict Reid goes down. Las Vegas is hurting. Home values have plummeted. People can’t afford to go there and vacation. when money is tight, food, medicine and shelter come before entertainment. Obama disparaged businesses who had meetings and conventions there, so they can thank and blame him for convention bookings way down.
Hopey changey has not been kind to NV.
It looks promising for the GOP in Nevada, even though they don’t have a top-tier candidate running.
This is starting to remind me of the ‘82 NV Senate race when 24-year incumbent Howard Cannon was finally beaten, but not by a first-tier challenger, but by a second-tier ex-legislator named Meyer “Chic” Hecht (the only defeat of an incumbent Dem Senator that year). Cannon had tough runs throughout his career, beating 4 first-tier Republicans in a row after his being part of the ‘58 anti-Ike landslide that swept over a dozen Democrats in (over Molly Malone, the incumbent Republican; followed by then-Lt Gov. Paul Laxalt in ‘64, whom Cannon beat by FORTY-EIGHT votes; the current State Senate GOP leader Bill Raggio in ‘70; and one-term wonder ex-Congressman David Towell in ‘76, whom Cannon defeated in an unexpected 2-to-1 landslide).
But ethical allegations (mafia links) finally caught up, and getting battered in the primary from Congressman Jim Santini caused him to fall to Hecht. It was a shame, Hecht was one of the few “real people” to have served in the Senate (and few Jewish Conservatives to have served in that body), and he was mocked and scorned for that, and sadly, he wasn’t able to hold the seat in the good GOP year of ‘88 (when the Dems recruited Gov. Dick Bryan, who was in the middle of his second term, who beat Hecht by a narrow 50-46%).
