(Sharron Angle) – We did it! After nine months of being written off and the pundits telling us we couldn’t win this race, the people of Nevada spoke loud and clear and sent a message tonight. People want change in Washington, and that’s exactly what we’re going to bring—whether Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid like it or not.
This isn’t the time to rest on our laurels though—the fact is, this race just got a whole lot tougher. I know what Harry Reid and his liberal buddies have planned for me.
According to Politico, “Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is prepared to run a sharply negative campaign if that’s what it takes to win reelection next year, with a top adviser predicting that the Nevada Democrat will “vaporize” his Republican challengers with attack ads.”
Harry Reid has zero chance to win this race if he has to talk about the issues or about his radical liberal record. His only chance is to destroy me with negative, dishonest, personal attacks. Reid and the liberal attack machine, aided by their friends in the “main stream media” are going to do everything they can to tear me apart. Make no mistake, they are coming at me with guns blazing. And I’m not talking about a month from now, or a week from now—I’m talking about tomorrow. We know their playbook: they are going to try to tear me down the same way that they did Rand Paul just a few weeks ago. That’s why I am writing you today.
I need your help. As we speak, Harry Reid has nearly nine million dollars in the bank, and he plans to use every dime of it on a vicious personal assault on me, my record, and my family. These people will stop at nothing to hold onto their power, and they are terrified of me. There is nothing they are not capable of at this point. That’s why I need your help so urgently.
I just went through a very competitive primary and had to spend a great deal of money to win it. Now it’s time to re-unite as a Party and reload so we can get back to doing what the people of Nevada tasked us with tonight: Sending Harry Reid into the retirement he so richly deserves. Can I count on you, right now?
I can defeat Harry Reid this November, but not without the generous donations of conservatives like you. Your gift of $25, $50, $100, $250 or even $1,000 right now will give me the ammunition I need to defend my record and tell the people of this state who Harry Reid really is: a tax-and-spend liberal, one of the architects of Obamacare, the intellectual Godfather of Cap and Trade.
He is the face of the radical Democrat agenda that the American people are rejecting, and it’s time to make him pay the price for that.
I know I am the under-dog in this race. I know what Harry Reid and the liberal Attack Machine intend to do to me. But I firmly believe that we have the message, and that the issues and the people of this state are on our side. Most importantly, I have the support of dedicated conservatives like you all over this country. If I have that, I have everything that I need.
Thank you for all that you have done, thank you for all that you continue to do, and stay tuned. It’s going to be a fun ride.
