Danny Tarkanian, the businessman and former UNLV basketball player who lost the Republican Senate primary in Nevada to Sharron Angle, is getting back in the game to campaign against Senate Majority Leader Reid.
Tarkanian came in third place in the June 8 primary with 23% of the vote, behind Angle at 40% and Sue Lowden with 26%. Now he has set up a new committee, called “1001 Reasons to Vote Against Harry Reid,” and a web site called HarryReidVotes.com. He said in a statement: “The voters of Nevada are hard working, smart people. I believe that once they are presented with the facts, they will say ‘No’ to Sen. Reid’s cynical spin and elect someone new to represent our great state in the U.S. Senate.”
Interestingly, this comes after Tarkanian’s mother, Lois Tarkanian, revealed after the primary that she is a Democrat and is now campaigning for Reid against Angle.
The TPM Poll Average currently puts Reid ahead of Angle by 46.4%-43.8%.
