Sharron Angle, the Republican nominee for Senate in Nevada against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, fired back at Sen. Bob Bennett (R-UT), who predicted that she would lose to Harry Reid because of her associations with the Tea Party movement. In response, she says that Bennett, who lost his renomination at the state GOP convention this spring, has “outlived his usefulness.”
“I’m glad to be lumped to a crowd of mainstream Americans who believe as they showed at the polls that Sen. Bennett has outlived his usefulness. I suppose he’s not mainstream any longer,” Angle said during an appearance Monday on the Neil Cavuto show. “He has become one of those elitists that is no longer in touch with what the country is really thinking about in these economic times.”
The TPM Poll Average currently gives Angle a lead of 45.9%-41.7%.
