2010 Elections The World Watched, The Nevada Democratic Party Worked | Harry Reid Wins!!!

Las Vegas, NV (Nov 3) – Nevadans went to bed smiling Tuesday night, knowing Senator Harry Reid was heading back to Washington as Senate Majority Leader.

Speaking from the Nevada State Democratic Election night headquarters, Senator Reid said, “It’s always been my honor to represent the state, to serve the state, and to fight for the state.”

The final vote count Harry Reid (D) 50%, Sharron Angle (R) and Tea Party candidate 45%.

Senator Reid even beat Sharron Angle in her own Washoe County, with some registered Republicans voting for Senator Reid, finding his opponent just too extreme.

In his acceptance speech, Senator Reid said, “Nevada chose to move forward not backwards.” He thanked his wife “my wife and my best friend,” his family, tireless staff, and generous volunteers. He added, “I wish my voice could convey what’s in my heart.”

This was a close win for the Senator. Polls showed his opponent running several points’ ahead right up to Election Day. Senator Reid acknowledged this in his speech, “You see I’ve been in some pretty tough fights in my day, they’ve been in the street, they’ve been in the boxing ring, and been in the United States Senate”, adding, “But, I have to admit, this has been one of the toughest.”

The Nevada Democratic Party machine was about two things “Moving America Forward”, and “Vote 2010”. At all the rallies, it was about getting the people out to vote, and it certainly worked for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

      WNV appreciates comments thanks rbv. Just an FYI for those who wanted to see Senator Reid lose this midterm election, remember Nevada was the fastest growing state for many, many years until the economy crashed, then all states suffered, not just Nevada.
