Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) – The ballroom at Harry Reid headquarters at the Aria Hotel cheered as returns kept showing him throughout the nation with a healthy margin over Sharron Angle.

Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) - The Sharron Angle campaign says employees of the Harrah's Casino suffered voter intimidation and the campaign filed a complaint with the Department of Justice and the Nevada Secretary of State.
The charge is based on a report by Elizabeth Crum that appeared in the National Review online, which includes an email chain outlining efforts to make it easier for Harrah's employees to get out and vote early. One of the emails reads "waking up to a defeat of Harry Reid Nov 3 will be devastating for our industry's future."

That's where the agreement ends.
