Politics Realm - A Conservative Perspective

GOP Leadership Finally Meets With Sharron Angle

June 15th 2010 22:35
Sharron Angle Wins Nevada GOP Senate Primary

It is now up to Sharron Angle to bring Harry Reid’s tenure in the Senate to a close. Whether or not Angle can pull the feat off remains to be seen, but she is definitely a woman who is up to the challenge. Angle is very “upfront about who she is and what she believes”. Two characteristics stand out about her: 1) she is extremely conservative and 2) she is firmly independent in her positions and principles.

Sue Lowden
was the first choice of the GOP in the Nevada Republican primary, mainly because she was believed to have a better chance of defeating Reid. To the surprise of many conservatives, Angle has quickly opened up a 10%-12% lead over Reid in most polls.

Today she traveled to Washington to meet with the Republican senators at their weekly luncheon. After the luncheon, she quickly left the building without answering any questions from the news core. Prior to the luncheon, Angle spokesman Larry Hart told the AP "She'll be making the rounds of all the people she needs to see to get her general election campaign off to a good start."

The Democrats are already at work challenging Angle’s positions on key issues such as privatizing Social Security and Medicare, along with her strong pro-life and anti-homosexual principles. While these are issues that Angle will hold a firm position on, they are not what will ultimately define this election which is Harry Reid himself. “This race has always been about Harry Reid. It continues to be about Harry Reid,” Angle spokesman Jerry Stacy said. Look for the Reid campaign to keep the focus on Angle and off of himself which means there will be many smokescreen issues presented by the Democrats.

To learn more about Angle, the Las Vegas Review Journal did an in-depth interview with her in which she was quite candid in her answers. This level of transparency is a rare quality for any candidate in today’s political world. While on the campaign trail, Angle is fond of saying, “Don’t read my lips, read my record.”

The non-partisan Cook Political Report rates the Nevada Senate race a toss up.

Ms. Angle is being accused all sorts of crazy things already, ol' Harry isn't wasting any time. The election will, indeed, be about him as long as she can keep things focused and doesn't have to spend every minute explaining herself and answering accusations (a favorite democrat ploy). Personally, being from Nevada, I'd love to see Harry back in Searchlight, and out of Washington ASAP. Behind bars would be good, too, but it's probably too much to hope for.
