Angle seeks support from Hispanics

Washington (CNN) – Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle is making a final push in the last two months before the Election Day to attract more Hispanic voters to the polls.

Angle has yet to release a Spanish language campaign ad, but a campaign spokesperson tells CNN the first commercial is on its way.

"We will be airing Spanish-language ads and continuing our grassroots outreach to the Hispanic community," Angle communications director Jarrod Agen said.

"The final two months of the campaign are when most people are paying attention to the race and focusing in on who they'll vote for," Agen added.

Agen would not comment on when the ads will be released, or where they will run.

Angle faces incumbent Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, this November. The most recent poll, conducted in August by the Las Vegas-Review Journal, shows Reid leading over Angle 46 – 44 percent.

The Reid campaign issued a statement reacting to Angle's outreach effort.

"Sen. Reid has a long legislative record on issues important to the Hispanic community. He works every day to create jobs, strengthen our classrooms, and ensure that every Nevadan has an opportunity to make it in America," said Reid campaign spokesman Jose Dante Parra. "Sharron Angle, in what can only be described as an act of desperation, has now decided that in order to win she needs a group she has used as a punching bag for so long."

    Fat chance of getting many Hispanic votes after the GOP has gone on a brown-bashing binge.

    I cannot see how Reid could get more votes than just about anyone. He has done nothing GOOD for his state or this nation. TIme to say GOOD-BYE to Reid.

  4. Former Republican, but never again!

    Why would ANY Hispanic support Angle? She's a racist and certainly will advocate policies that are detrimental to all Hispanics!

    "Angle seeks support from Hispanics"

    That probably means she wants 4 of them to hold her aloft in a chair while she watches another crew of them cut her grass and clean her pool.

    I am sure the hispanics are jumping at the chance to vote for a right wing Bigot that has a preminition to do away with social security and medicare/medicaid programs from some of it's most logical and heavy users. To bad Neavada could not have come up with a better candidate , most democrats would love to get rid of REID but to trade him off for another REID type in a skirt is a pretty rough choice.

    Hola! I'm Sharon Angle, I want your hispanic vote, so I can criminalize and deport your families, kill Social Security, take away your health care, deposit your savings on risky Wall Street junk bonds, get rid of the Education Department, affirmative action, gut the US Interior Department and gut civil rights gains, take away citizenship from your US born children and make pre-emptive war on any country with oil deposits...But I will pray for you when you are starving! Arriva!

    It always amazes me how Republicans can get people to vote against their own best interests – that's exactly what Angle is expecting Hispanic voters to do. Here's hoping they are smart enough to not fall for that crap.

    Hopefully Hispanics aren't sucked into this dingbat's devices. She certainly does not have their interests in mind.

    What's this fruit cakes ad going to say in Spanish, Vote for me so I know who to throw out of the country? Really, she is against all non-white people who don't fit her idea of an American.

    Vote NO in NOvember to the party of NO.

    Generally speaking, Hispanics that are legally here, hard working and self-sufficient will vote for Angel. Those wanting more entitlements, open borders, unfettered amnesty and a free ride on the American taxpayers will vote for Reid. Hopefully, most Nevadans will make the right decision and boot Harry and his Liberal idiocy out of office.

    Why would we turn our backs on Mr. Reid, when he has a long history of programs to help all citizens of Nevada. We need to be careful with this Angle woman, she can't seem to remember statements she made the day before. Angle & her GOP cohorts wants education eliminated so this country will NEVER see another President OBAMA, in the Oval Office.

    You have got to be kidding! After all the GOPers hate talk about the 'illegals' and the new 'Papers Please' law in AZ? NOW Angle is seeking support from Latinos? Good luck with that Sharron. You'll need it.

    To all the Latin voter in Nevada, What would be like if Sharron Angle became a Governor of Arizona, She would be no different than Governor Brewer or possibly worst, She would sign that tough Immigration law to take all the constitutoinal rights away From you. O.K Its up to you on the Election day.Harry Reid would be a better choice for all Latin American.Good Luck.
