The Nevada senate race is one of the most followed elections this year.
Tea Party candidate Sharon angle has a good chance to unseat senate majority leader Harry Reid.
Washington times reporter -- -- has been following.
And she joins the company now from Las Vegas what you call it forest -- does Harry Reid lose this one.
Well you know it really depends here it looks like Sharon angle certainly has the -- that are back.
But you know if we -- to see what happens after.
She is can monetary -- dance around already know that you might have a remarkable when you look on the ground I want you -- -- it does Harry Reid lose.
I think that Sharon angle pull this out -- school weaker.
But you know we have to see what happens -- any shenanigans go on at the polls because right now.
I'm hearing that that the her early voting there could have been some weird things that really happened.
You know and plus what we it rate now with that I'm hearing a lot of the union members.
Our very angry with that Harry Reid because the unemployment among them is just too high okay.
Now with this -- and -- let's just suppose for a second that senator Reid loses.
Is this a vote against Harry Reid specifically.
Or is it a vote against.
The national government Barack Obama.
Well here's the thing is that it really depends on who you ask because if you -- say a union member.
You know it it'll be more of a vote against Harry Reid and a vote against Barack Obama because as far as they're concerned.
It's it's a lot of anger towards the it -- policy.
On the administration.
And as and also as far as what Harry Reid hasn't done.
For the economy and the unemployment rate the highest one and in in the nation here Nevada.
But also need to talk to -- conservative and a Republican here in stated and that.
Then they're feeling empowered they feel like they have a chance -- the boat for -- -- for Sharon angle so yeah it's it really depends on the adoptive.
Well you've been up for some time -- in Las Vegas area you're reporting on the selection I know that if you woke up and down the strip.
Doesn't look like this there's any real hardship on -- in this strip -- full of plenty of people that casinos have full rest should not be when you get off the strip.
Does Las Vegas show signs that it is no longer prosperous that you got to 14% unemployment rate that catastrophic housing situation.
Can you see it in Vegas as you walk.
Well you know it's like anything else you look at the signs of -- certain -- businesses that.
That have closed down and some businesses that are coming in.
In it's certainly saddening but the real telling point here is the big city center where.
Harry Reid said that he had saved jobs -- in the end it which was complete -- as far as I could be because a number of of but it of employees -- actually end up losing jobs talking about 400.
And play that that getting laid off.
At it as a result of city center so that was pretty arguable.
-- good defense.
-- this is Tracy -- I think you make -- really interesting point about that smell on Barack Obama he won by like thirteen points I think it was in 2008 so.
You're essentially not only voting against -- who didn't -- -- credit for the housing debacle says it was not his fault.
-- -- basically saying we want and you win the interconnection points and now we're take them -- back.
Think yeah exactly and in fact.
The whole the whole thing here is that.
Barack Obama really doesn't ring well over here in this sad state any why do you think that Michelle Obama was was -- brought -- -- here just yesterday instead of Barack Obama.
Is it he usually when the when the First Lady is it is that brought to the state as opposed to -- -- president that's so really telling.
Yeah once again highest unemployment rate in the country and I think that.
You know particularly why and I understand that Harry Reid.
He was actually hanging out over at the airport yesterday and trying to shake hands with the construction workers I I understand that he got a pretty cool reception who.
-- carried -- Washington times thanks for joining us we appreciate inside.
