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.

The ad was removed from YouTube hours after its release because of a copyright claim made by Zuffa LLC, the Las Vegas-based parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
