With one week to go before Election Day, both Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Republican rival Sharron Angle have begun their closing arguments with a pair of new ads out today.
Reid’s ad stresses the same theme: Angle is extreme and dangerous.
But the ad closes with Reid’s last minute push to put stress on the fractures already evident in the Republican Party.
“As a Republican, I can't see voting for Sharron Angle,” Las Vegas executive Morgan Bunker says in the ad.
Meanwhile, Angle’s campaign borrowed a tactic broadly employed by Reid’s campaign this year: Using the candidate's own words against him.
Pulling from a long list of Reid gaffes, the ad attacks him for his remarks including the war is lost, Hispanics shouldn’t be Republicans and a racially insensitive description of President Obama.
