Shades of 1994

Election 2010: Polls show potential GOP challengers would beat Harry Reid.

It's the highest stakes ever for a Nevada election, and former boxer Sen. Harry Reid is on the ropes early. Either Republican Danny Tarkanian or Sue Lowden would knock out Reid in a general election, according to a recent poll of Nevada voters.

The results suggest the Democratic Senate majority leader will have to punch hard and often in order to retain his position as the most accomplished politician in state history, in terms of job status.

Nevadans favored Tarkanian over Reid 49 percent to 38 percent and Lowden over Reid 45 percent to 40 percent, according to the poll. (Source.)

When asked for comment, Reid said Tarkanian and Lowden are "evil mongers," and that's why he should be re-elected. (/sarcasm)

How sweet would that be o get rid of this idiot Reid?

Hube why is it, for me anyway, the Congress party leaders become such assholes? I could not stand Hastert or Delay either- so it is not simply the political party.

I think Hastert was OK, but I'm pretty much w/you regarding Delay.

Why do they become such a-holes, AJ? POWER.

I'm guessing that Tarkanian's name doesn't hurt him in Nevadada.

Tarkanian is the son of former basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian.
