(Sharron Angle) – Can anyone beat a powerful senator like Harry Reid?
Tsunamis are powerful. Harry Reid has been a national tsunami. His blind support of: President Obama’s stimulus programs, cap-and-trade proposals, bail-outs, and the take-over of the health care industry, are a disaster for our nation. The unemployment rate is wavering at or above 10%, the housing industry has effectively collapsed and economists are predicting a double-dip recession.
With the election results from New Jersey and Virginia, the enthusiastic Tea Parties and Capitol Hill protests, the answer has to be a resounding “Yes!”

I am not asking you to “Read my lips” I’m asking you to “read my record.”
That record is posted on my website www.sharronangle.com. Here are a few examples:
In 2004, I was awarded the Ronald Reagan Medallion for Courageous Client by the Claremont Institute for my fight to restore the 2/3 legislative vote to raise taxes. My attorneys, Dr. John Eastman and Ed Meese, took the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
As the Minority Whip in 2003, I lead 15 fighting Republican legislators against the largest tax increase in the history of Nevada through one regular session and two special sessions.
I am known for my consistent and numerous “no” votes on tax and fee increases and poor public policy. I have earned a reputation even with my detractors as the lower taxes, less government regulation Reagan conservative.
In 2007, after I retired from my office as Nevada State Assemblywoman, I requested, lobbied for and passed five pieces of legislation that defended our constitution. Home schooling bill SB 404 passed as a model for freedom of choice in education law in the nation.
In 2008, I sponsored the Nevada Property Tax Restraint Initiative for the ballot as Question 5 that collected over 80,000 signatures across the state.
You may have questions about the Republican primary on June 8. That race can be simply stated in a few sentences.
At this time there are 12 candidates in the race for Nevada’s Senator, 9 have no experience.
John Chachas – A Wall Street banker who does not live in Nevada and has no elected office experience.
Danny Tarkanian -A lawyer who lost two previous elections and has no elected office experience.
Voters have been lied to before by politicians that “run right” and “vote left” once they are elected. Actions speak louder than words.
There are 3 candidates who have had legislative experience:
Mark Amodei – A lawyer and term-limited State Senator who voted for the 2003 largest tax increase in Nevada history.
Sue Lowden – A one term Nevada State Senator who donated thousands of dollars to elect Harry Reid in the past.
Sharron Angle – A small business manager, former teacher and Four-term Nevada Assemblywoman who has a reputation for being a consistent fiscal and social conservative.
As Pat Toomey, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania said in 2006, “Sharron Angle has a stellar record of opposing higher taxes in the Legislature, in the courts, and on the ballot…In all, she has voted against dozens of tax and fee increases in the Legislature.”
