Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) - The debate in the nation's marquee Senate race was probably the dullest thing that happened in Las Vegas on Thursday night.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is known to get awkward and wonky, was both at times. He seemed so intent on coming off as likable that he missed openings to challenge his rival, Republican insurgent Sharron Angle.
Angle, who astonished Democrats by raising $14 million in the past quarter, was the aggressor in the debate yet unsteady at that. She often seemed confused on the facts and lost in her own answers.
