Reid ad: Angle would be a disaster

(CNN) – As Nevada's bitter and bruising Senate race nears its end, Sen. Harry Reid is hoping that voters look past the rancor and focus squarely on jobs.

A new ad released by Reid's campaign over the weekend combines a series of damning newspaper quotes about his opponent, former state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle, with a bipartisan line-up of Nevada business leaders to make the case that Angle's positions would make the state's already troubling unemployment problem even worse.

Angle will be bad for women, new ad says

(CNN) – A major union group launched a new ad for embattled Nevada Sen. Harry Reid on Thursday, adding to the already bitter ad war between Reid and his Republican opponent, Sharron Angle.

In the ad, created by the Services Employee International Union (SEIU), a woman narrator says Angle is "too dangerous to have real power over real people," and questions how her positions would affect women at all stages of life.

"If she was raped and got pregnant, Angle would force her to have the baby," the narrator says as a teenage girl stares directly into the camera.

Biden blasts Angle: 'shame on her'

(CNN) - In a stump speech for vulnerable Democratic Sen. Harry Reid, Vice President Biden credited him with the "successes" of the past two years and called Reid's Republican opponent, Sharron Angle "extreme."

"The alternative to Harry Reid is extreme, is extreme" Biden said. "When you start to compare our vision, Harry's vision with the lack of vision in the alternative, the choice is quickly abundantly clear."

Biden touted Reid's legislative accomplishments including financial and health care reform and criticized Angle's positions on health care. He also repeated Reid's campaign and advertising line that Angle wants to privatize Veterans Affairs hospitals. Biden said she must hold that opinion because she doesn't understand the issue.
