Las Vegas Review Journal endorses Angle

← return to Water Cooler

Updated 10/3/10 11:50 PM EST.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal, Nevada’s largest paper, has endorsed Republican candidate for Senate Sharron Angle. According to the AP:

Nevada’s largest newspaper has endorsed Republican Sharron Angle’s bid for U.S. Senate against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

The endorsement Sunday from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, an influential newspaper that has pounded on Reid and praised Angle, was not unexpected.

In its endorsement, the newspaper deemed the election a clear choice between Angle, who supports limited government, and what it described as Washington’s big spending and partisan bickering.

The paper endorsed President Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Democrat,in 2004.

The race between Ms. Angle and Senator Reid remains tight. The latest Rasmussen poll shows Mr. Reid with only a one point advantage:

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada shows Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid with 48% support and his Republican challenger Sharron Angle with 47%% of the vote when leaners are included. Four percent (4%) like another candidate in the race, and one percent (1%) are undecided.

This is only good news for Ms. Angle. If she can keep this up until one week before November 2, she may be able to pull it off, as challengers who trail incumbents within at least striking distance usually end up prevailing with better turnout in the end.
