WASHINGTON — Let the backlash begin.
One day after the extravaganza at Caesars Palace for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Republican campaign arm in the Senate posted a web-only video today criticizing the fundraising largess in these recessionary times.
Republicans are betting that Reid’s assertion that he will raise $25 million for his 2010 reelection will turnoff Nevadans who may frown at such a hefty sum. The Tuesday night event at Caesars brought in almost $2 million.
But Reid’s opponents are not wilting in the dollars race.
Reid, it should be remembered, promised an "aggressive" campaign.
And such endeavors cost.
