Much At Stake In Angle/Reid Nevada Senate Debate
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will defend his congressional seat tonight in his first face-to-face debate with Republican Tea Party Challenger Sharron Angle.
The debate marks the first time the two candidates have shared a stage, and the only time they will do so before the November election. Angle has declined Reid's offer for further debates, stating that she wants an "informed electorate" to decide the Nevada Senate race.
According to a recent Real Clear Politics poll, the Nevada's senate race is at a statistical tie going into tonight's debate.
Reid is seeking his fifth term as Senator for Nevada while his state maintains the highest unemployment rate in the county at 14.4%
