Democratic operatives in Nevada are pumping voters here to the polls like nickels into a slot machine, and yet their efforts may not be enough for Senate candidate Shelley Berkley.
Between Democratic incumbent Harry Reid's gaffes and Republican challenger Sharron Angle's misfires, the winner of the Nevada Senate race may be the first candidate who can stop talking.
"The Democrats now really have to scramble," Herzik said Tuesday. "Without a candidate, you have implicitly conceded."
"The Democrats saving grace is that conservative Republicans will make a joke that the Democrats already have a candidate - it's Brian Sandoval," said Eric Herzik, political scientist at the University of Nevada, Reno.
