(CNN) – What happened in Vegas surely won't stay there.
At a rally Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took a pointed jab at his GOP challenger, former state assemblywoman Sharron Angle.
"As I look out over this crowd, I really don't know what my opponent was talking about," Reid said. "Because you all look like Nevadans to me."
Reid's comments come one day after news surfaced that Angle told a group of Hispanic school children that "some of you look a little more Asian to me."
Angle's spokesman downplayed the remarks on Tuesday, saying they were taken out of context.
"Sharron is making the point that this country is a melting pot, and you cannot judge people based on stereotypes or the way they look," Jarrod Agen told CNN.
At the Vegas campaign stop, Reid slammed Angle for staying out of the spotlight after she makes controversial comments.
"Have you noticed that every time my opponent screws up, which is quite often, she goes into her bunker?" he asked. "She's now cancelling public events again. I guess it was her appearance at Rancho High School that put her back in her bunker."
"If you can't talk to the media while you're running for the United States Senate, you shouldn't be running for the United States Senate," Reid added.
