Nevada: GOP Senate Candidates Fill Airwaves With Ads

Two more Senate hopefuls are on the air, trying to distinguish themselves as the Republican best suited to take on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) this fall.

In a radio ad that started airing Monday, former state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle (R) critiques the federal government’s bailouts for Wall Street and talks up a tea party rally planned for Reid’s hometown of Searchlight on March 27.

The rally, organized by the group Tea Party Express, will feature former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart and others.

Angle trails former state Sen. Sue Lowden, who has already aired several television commercials, and Las Vegas real estate developer Danny Tarkanian in recent primary polls, but she tops Reid in a hypothetical general election race.

Tarkanian, meanwhile, has begun airing a radio ad featuring the endorsement of Chuck Heath, Palin’s father.
