Washington (CNN) - Sharron Angle of Nevada and five other Republican Senate nominees are headed to the nation's capitol Tuesday to team up with top Republicans to raise campaign cash for their bids for the Senate.
According to an invitation acquired by CNN, the fundraiser will include two special guests: Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, who has become an in-demand GOP surrogate, thanks to his upset victory in January's special election to fill the final two years of the term of the late Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy.
Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, John Boozman of Arkansas, Dan Coats of Indiana, Dino Rossi of Washington State and Marco Rubio of Florida are the other Republican nominees attending the fundraiser.
But it's Angle more than any of the other candidates who may be in the spotlight Tuesday, thanks to the release of an audiotape of a recent conversation she had with Scott Ashjian, a third party Senate candidate in Nevada whom Angle was hoping to convince to drop out of the race against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
According to the audio tape, which was first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Angle criticizes the Republican Party for lacking standards and principles.
Republican Party leaders "have lost their principles" Angle said during the session, adding they only are reluctantly supporting her after defeating the favored candidate in the June primary.
Ashjian confirmed the authenticity of the tape to CNN Sunday night.
Angle, who is a strong supporter of the Tea Party movement, was once a longshot but came out on top in Nevada's June primary, thanks in part to the backing and assistance of the Tea Party Express, a California-based national Tea Party group.

Republican and hypocrisy go hand and hand.
because we have idiot racists in Nevada, they based their votes off emotion and not logic...and this is the result of their doing...this woman is wacko!!!
Another two-faced republican.
Ant one who doesn't think this takes place is a little naive remember when they sent Clinton to convince candidates not to run?
Will she be allowed to speak to the press or will she be wearing a burkha?

SLOPPY SLOPPY CNN why can't you guys review your articles?
Again, Another right wing radical. Please stop calling these folks "conservative" They have no clue what it means to be one.
She really didn't say anything bad. If anything, she may attract some independent voters.
Watch out GOP leadership...if she doesn't get what she want's she might lead an armed insurrection against you! Her words, not mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Angle to the GOP–you have no standards or principles! Now, give me your dollar$$, Koch Bros...
Angle's new GOtP "principles" are to force women to have rape & incest pregnancies with her Big government intrusions into citizens' private lives, where Angle's government has no business. And it's not just Angle; we have another in Central FL with the same extreme positions. No thanks.
Brown and Cornyn better wear tape recorders because Angle will wear one to carry back the "Juice" she promised Ashjian.
She wants the POWER and will sell others the access to other republicans/teabaggers already in POWER. Another one that knows how to say NO to education, social security, the VA, and on and on and on.
She wants the POWER that lobbyists will pay her for.
Good for Angle. Anything is better than that loser Reid. Reid has done nothing but hurt the state of Nevada and we would have been so much better off without him all these years.
Go, Sharron, go! Harry Reid will be going down in flames for his support of teh Pelosi agenda. Government taking over banks, student loans, health insurance and car industry. When does it end? NOVEMBER 2ND.
Remember this November, the real crime was the supreme court ending limits on corporations for political spending (voted by the 5 Republican justices). You will see the results of this in the next few weeks as corporations are now buying as much air time as possible for their favorite “No regulation-Big Business friendly” Republican.
Your vote is now bought and paid for by Exxon, Phizer, AIG, BP, Bank of America, etc, etc,

Sharon Angle will no doubt grow to be the leading intellectual force of the Republican Party surpassing, dare I say, even Michael Steele and Rush Limbaugh.
Maybe she came to pick out her curtains, like Miller of Alaska.
The witches and warlocks are getting together for a coven in D.C.
If all these tea party candidates get elected, than it shows that we really need education reform.
DEMOCRATS need to WAKE up and smell the CORRUPTION!! I don't even know why the RepubliCAN'Ts are holding fundraisers when they are getting all of their money from BIG CORPs/BIG 'SMALL BUSINESS' CORPs. And what are they doing with the money – spreading HATE, BIGOTRY and FEAR-MONGERING against the MAINSTREAM of AMERICA which includes non-WHITES (including Muslims) and GAYS!!
If ANGLE wins Nevada – we are in deep, Deep, DEEP trouble!!! I don't even understand why the race is so CLOSE???? Oh yea, I know why – the POLLS lean RIGHT anyway – hmm, so maybe the Pollsters and the Pundits are in for a RUDE AWAKENING!!!!!
DEMOCRATS – STATE the CASE and mean it – UNITE the BASE and be proud of it – WIN the RACE in November 2010 because WE CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is T'SAH from Virginia and I approve this message!!!
Anyway money can't buy people "VOTE" if you qualify you should get it and if you not qualify you need to shut up and let other people do the job. VOTE FOR DEMOCRATIC.
Sharron Angle should not be in the U.S.Senate,her Idea are too far out there for anybody not to think she the world biggest nut case. I'm a Independent voter.
She even looks dumb as rocks. Even as much as I hate Harry Reid, I cannot understand how this mouth-breathing moron is doing so well against him.
CNN continues their bias, support for the right. Just look at column on the left. Tea party signs, republicans headlined at every opportunity. Are you trying to compete with Fox?
Angle, O'Donnell, Rand and other incompetent, unqualified nominees representing the republicans would be our country's worse nightmare if elected.
Democrats, we need to vote if we do not want our country faced with further destruction. We almost did not survive their last eight years of control and their "pledge" is a continuation of their politics as usual.
DeMint, after listing they intend to complete gridlock for the next two years, any politician that does not agree will be treated as traitors is a good example of what they intend to do to our country and their unAmerican mentallity.
They are indeed the traitors.
I'd like to be a fly on the wall to hear how she will backtrack on her own words. But, as usual she will probably say she misspoke or that her words were taken out of context.
