At the risk of beating a dead horse, I was presented with yet another example of just how badly the Sharron Angle campaign did on election day, especially in her home county which, as has been widely reported, she lost big-time – I think around 7,000 votes. But here’s an even more telling set of figures:
In Nevada state Senate District 2, within Angle’s Washoe County home base, Don Gustavson – a conservative many consider to be an Angle clone – won the seat formerly held by term-limited conservative state Senator Maurice Washington by some 5,000 votes. In other words, this is extremely friendly territory for conservative Republicans.
Yet Angle lost to Reid in that district by around 400 votes. Now that’s just plain embarrassing.
