Strategist: Daschle Was an ‘Amateur’ Compared to Reid

Dick Wadhams, the Colorado Republican party chairman and campaign manager for Sen. John Thune’s (R-S.D.) upset of Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) in 2004, penned a fundraising letter for Republican Sue Lowden’s Nevada Senate campaign.

In the e-mail, sent out to Lowden supporters on Thursday, Wadhams wrote that “Daschle was a rank amateur compared to Harry Reid,” the current majority leader, whom Lowden hopes to take on in 2010.

“Tom Daschle was a mere obstructionist of the Republican agenda. Harry Reid is the chief architect of the worst parts of the Obama-Democratic agenda,” Wadhams wrote.
