Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid basked in his re-election Wednesday after Nevada voters helped him turn back a challenge from a Tea Party-backed Republican he painted as too extreme for the state.It's the only way to excuse her loss to an idiot like Harry Reid in a state where unemployment hovers around 15%. I don't think it was the "racist" ad she released against illegal immigration the other day so much as she should've talked to the media more (esp. FOX and even CNN), her debate performance against Reid last month was pretty wack (although conservatives hailed it, to me she came across as bumbling, timid and inarticulate) and telling Hispanic students that they "might look Asian" was just ass-backwards. I don't think Harry Reid won so much as Sharron Angle lost and yes, in a way Joy Behar does get the last laugh.
The veteran Democrat won his fifth term with strong support from self-described moderates and voters who considered former state lawmaker Sharron Angle too conservative, according to exit polling. With 99 percent of precincts counted, Reid led Angle 50 percent to 45 percent after a race that polls had indicated was neck-and-neck until the end.
"For me, this is not eking out a race," Reid told CNN's "American Morning" on Wednesday. "I've had some close ones. This wasn't close."
