Nevada Senate

Reid Optimistic as Voters Hit Polls

Somebody in Nevada will be proved wrong tonight. As voting continues on Election Day in Nevada, both Sharron Angle (R) and incumbent Harry Reid (D) expressed confidence they would come out ahead when all the votes are counted. Nevada’s Senate race has become a nationally headlining event, as the contest between the well-funded Democratic majority leader and his upstart, ultra-conservative, Tea Party opponent enters its final stretch. The Reid campaign noted that Democrats have a clear lead in early voting, while Angle pointed out her double-digit lead among independents. If he doesn't win, though, New York's Chuck Schumer is waiting in the wings to lead.
