Stark contrast in Nevada headquarters

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. They erupted in cheers and applause when the television networks started calling the race for the Senate Majority Leader - a call that came much earlier than many thought.

Meanwhile the mood at his Republican opponent's headquarters at the Venetian Hotel was more quiet, somber as with many in attendance in shock as polls showed Angle with a small lead going into the election.

Both candidates watched the returns from hotel suites. Neither allowed a photo opportunity with them.

    The question for Nevada voters and media is who will ask the hard questions of Reid and the millions of dollars spent to get Angle the nomination from no where! Millions spent and Reid people bragging about their role it that!

    I vote because it matters!?makes no difference who wins-both parties are self centered,I have lost confidence,trust and
    and pride,I'm not hopeless I still beleive
    that our great nation will be restored but
    not until we learn to let our leaders lead.,
    We've been tearing our president apart,do
    we seriously beleive that one is better than the other?Mr.Bush used 8 years to prove
    he was the wrong choice,boy were we wrong
    w/him,you think it can be fixed in 2 years???

    Congratulations Nevada! Thank you very much! You rejected in the end misinformation and simplistic solutions to complicated problems! But, the work is not over! Please engage yourself, inform yourself, educate yourself on what is happening and bring the State forward! Don’t believe that an “Angle” can’t stand knocking on the door again in the future!
