Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid and his Republican challenger, Sharron Angle , sparred over the new health-care law, the economy and Social Security in the only debate of his Senate re-election campaign in Nevada.
The Republicans are poised to retake the U.S. House and narrow Democrats’ margin in the Senate, delivering a rebuke to President Barack Obama ’s party in a campaign shaped by voter anxiety over jobs and the economy.
In the closing days of his losing campaign for Virginia’s governorship, Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli called the contest a referendum on Obamacare. Virginia voter Lee Killen saw it instead as a referendum on the Tea Party -- and he voted no.
President Barack Obama urged Nevadans to re-elect Harry Reid , saying he needs the Senate majority leader to continue work on the policies that brought the U.S. economy out of the worst recession since the Great Depression.
